Water detected in sump would it come from the oil cooler

Would need more information on the year, manufacturer, model and engine size. That said, most engine oil coolers do not use engine coolant as a cooling medium. They are mounted in front of the radiator and use air cooling. If that is the case, water in the sump would most likely be due to a blown head gasket, cracked head, or cracked engine block.
Oil coolers for automatic transmissions are often installed internal to the vehicle radiator, and if one of these breaks, then coolant will infiltrate the transmission sump and transmission oil will infiltrate the cooling system.

Oil in the cooling system

oil in the cooling system comes from a transmission oil cooler in the radiator leaking. I take it that you have an automatic transmission Normally if you have a gasket problem the water would be in the sump oil. You will need to replace the radiator to effectively fix the problem and as a side suggestion consider an air cooled transmission oil cooler for the transmission oil as it helps the car to run cooler and keeps the transmission oil cooler and extends the life of the transmission.

Will a auto transmission cooler from a ED falcon fit an EF falcon

If it is in the radiator it should as the fittings are the only problem you are likely to encounter. If you are wondering if the cooling capability is affected consider this . Hot tranny oil has to be cooled in the radiator water and this heat makes the radiaror work hard.Why don"t you consider a external cooler. They keep the oil cooler as they are are running in the outside air. Ie air temp 30 deg C oil temp 150c+ water temp 85degC oil temp 150c. You can see that the tranny oil looses more heat and it will not overload the radiator capability

I have a ATLAS COPCO GA 160 w at my work and it is shutting down on high element temprature. I noticed that the oil level in the seperator is low and have topped it up a few times but everytime i run it...

Without more info or knowing your compressor my first question to you is,is the oil cooler clean and does the unit have good water flow. DO you have good water flow / pressure. The oil level should be about half way the sight glass running loaded. If the oil level was low ,when the thermostat opens it allows oil to flow to the cooler which lowers the oil level.Typical problems during this time of year are , , dirty oil cooler, Faulty thermostat, Faulty element temperature sensor, Low oil levels and bad oil. Also dirty oil filters restrict oil flow and can cause high element temp. problems. Try back flushing the water side of the oil cooler. Have you checked to make sure the water solenoid is opening. May have a bad coil or valve. May also have water solenoid plugged with something. What is the cooling water inlet temp and outlet temp. The W usually indicates water cooled. If not water cooled, most of the above also applies to air cooled units. just replace water with air if it fits.

I have motor oil in my radiator and water reserve but no water in my oil, what could be the problem. Can an intake valve that is stuck cause this problem

your problem sounds like the transmission oil cooler lines,which are located in the radiator tank itself inside the radiator,has a leak which means the radiator needs replacing and the cooling system needs a good coolant flush to get all the oil out of the cooling system,be aware that you may have to replace all the rubber hoses as the oil will cause the rubber to swell and come apart,there is no connection between the cooling system and the valve system in any motor as they are completely separate systems

I want to know if the any of the 2002 sportster models are oil cooled


I do not know of any 2002 sportster models that are oil cooled. I have heard of owners fitting an oil cooler on HD's, but I, personally, have never seen it done on 2002 sportsters.

Hope this helps.

I got engine oil inside my cooling system, I believe it came from the oil cooler, I need to clean the cooling system from all the oil before I start running the car, what should I use to get rid of the oil...

Get a turkey baster, all the oil will float to the top, and you can **** it out with that. I would get an oil cooler that goes outside the radiator and run the lines into it, stop the oil from getting in there, you will have to plug the old lines together at the radiator, to keep the water in. If that is where the leak is, if it isn't, then you have a blown head gasket somewhere, check for steam coming out the exhaust while driving, keep an eye on the temp gauge, don't let it overheat. Hope this helps.
