Hi, sorry but your head gaskit has gone, allowing water into your oil. You can replace this your self, but its not easy, its really an expensive garage job! A short term solution is to add a radiator leek stop solution to your radiator! but as I say this only short term.

Would a rod knocking cause the oil to have milky clumps inthe oil fill but not the filter or pan even though antifreeze does not leak and the 2001 2.2l chevy s-10 does not overheat? I used lucas heavy duty...


Milky oil is usually caused from condensation from some where either antifreeze getting in, or if you are doing a lot of short drives where the engine doesn't get a chance to come up to full temperature. If there is water in your oil it will cause your knocking sound. I would change the oil and put in some fresh and see what happens.

Lexus oil gel


change engine oil every 6000kms and a oil filter every third oil change and no problem ,this jelly is caused by not changing oil often enough so warm up engine and then drain some out then add about a litre of diesel and a good squirt of fairy liquid washing up stuff then run engine on idle for half hour and then drain it out ,refill with new oil filter and use a the cheapest diesel/petrol oil for a turbo engine you can find and use this all the time none of this fancy long life stuff but the cheapest you can get and this will keep the inside of the engine clean and make it last for ever.

Have a chrysler 300 awd 3.5l losing a quart of oil every 1300 miles. Is this going to cause more prob.


Oil alone is not enough anymore, I use Pennzoil platinum synthetic and add 1/3 of a quart/ litre of lucas oil stabilizer; to bring up to the full mark. (Add the lucas first.;)(I also use the lucas fuel conditioner every 4th fuel-up.). With all this being said, I hope you have checked the obvious, the pvc valve, take it out and shake it, it should rattle or it's bad, and needs to be changed; If that is not it, Make sure you ck the water/antifreeze to see if it is contaminated with oil. If that doesn't find it, there are special additives to add color to help track leaks, Could you have possible had a loose oil plug or filter not quite tight enough? (**** happens) so again don't be surprised...!!! Could you have gotten taken for a ride at some oil change had someone pull a fast one on you? Due you change your oil and service your car yourself? Also, i did notice on one oil change, an inconsistent situation, i always change my own oil, and one time it just didn't look right, at 5000 k's / 3000 miles the oil was blacker than usual, and when I changed the filter, there was more sludge than usual, which really alarmed me. (I chocked it up to maybe possibly time of year winter snows, cold weather, longer warm-ups / -30 temps BBBBBRRRRR, but I think the same can happen with HOT weather causing the viscosity of the oil to be lost, rember when oil loses it's viscosity ,,, it needs to be changed and this is when it's down 1 litre/quart, (If you can catch it just when this happens, throw a little lucas stabilizer in, 1/3 of a litre, i feel an engine is not really broken in until it has 60,000 miles; (of course it all depends on how you drive it) are you the only driver of the vehicle? back in my younger days, dad's old car could really smoke them tires Ugh Huh,,,,,ha ha ha ha ha ha

I have a 2004 jag x-type 3.0l v6 auto tranny w/70,000 miles and it has a lifter knock i believe? the noise gets louder and faster when i rev engine... what can i do about it?


three squirts of washing up liquid ,has to be fairy not a cheap one ,half a litre of diesel all added to the engine oil ,run for a couple of days as normal and the noise will diminish ,Then change oil and filter but use a 10/40 detergent oil suitable for a turbo diesel ,the cheapest you can buy ,now change oil every 6000m with a oil filter every third oil change .You have a noisey hydraulic tappet nothing more which is fairly common on this engine and its caused by not changing the oil enough and using expensive long life oil which causes problems like yours by allowing the combustion residue to accumulate within the internal workings of your engine ,

My car is ticking. Sounds like its coming from the valve cover gasket.


put a good squirt of wahing up liquid into engine oil and half litre of diesel ,then run a while say 300 miles or so then change oil and use turbo diesel engine oil ,now if noise stops then just change oil every 6000 miles with a oil filter every third oil change.but if noise persists then repeat with washing up liquid and diesel and leave for a longer period ,your hydraulic tappets are gummed up from not changing the oil regular ,never mind these so called long life oils ---this is what happens when oil is not changed regular

I need to change the water pump and I need to know the proper way to do it for a 1997 Chevy Blazer LS 4.3 litre.


First you need to drain down the coolant, secound take top of fan shrould off 2#10 bolts on each side, third loosen fan bolts, fourth take belt off, fifth take fan off, sixth unbolt anything that is bolted to water pump like power steering pump, maybe ac. pump heater hoses ect. last take 4 bolts out that hold water pump to block 2 on each side and thats it. Clean old gasgets off engine block and bolt on new pump with new gasgets witch will come with new pump. Put back to gether in reverse order.

1997 Yamaha YZF Thunderace uses 1/2 quart of oil every 200 miles


Replace standard rings with GTS1000 rings . I had Fzr1000 with same problem , at 187000 kms I pulled the barrels off and found no hone left , it was a smooth bore . Also replaced valve guide seals at this time also . Oil consumption dropped from 1 litre per 1000kms to 1 litre per 8000kms. Bike has now done 308000kms and still uses oil at the rate of 1 litre per 4000kms .

Advice on purchasing a 2005 Chrysler 300 Limited with 98000 miles


Hello scottym88...The chrysler 300 engine is the weak point on this vehicle, the 2.7 litre was a major headache for owners, dealers and Chrysler...the problem was due to engine sludge, poor oil circulation, poor crankcase ventilation, faulty timing chain tensioners...etc...From 1998-2004 the Chrysler 2.7L was prone to Oil Sludge often caused by internal coolant leakage that has to do with the design of the Water Pump that allows coolant to enter the Engine over time and causes oil sludge...result..ENGINE FAILURE. For 2005, changes included improvements to the PCV system and improved oil circulation, to even later increasing oil capacity by an extra quart in an attempt to make the engine more reliable... Unfortunately, even with all of these modifications premature engine failure is common. I've seen this first hand...and the really sad part is CHRYSLER knows...yet refuses to cover prematurely failed engines even when under its own 3 Year / 36,000 mile warranty while blaming consumers for these problems.
If you want to research this further, check out the consumer complaints on this vehicle and/or the 2.7 litre engine. I have been a MOPAR enthusiast all my life, and in my opinion this was the worst engine that chrysler ever released to the public.
Good luck...i hope this helps answer your question..please rate me a fixya.

White smoke from tailpipe after engine is hot only occurs when stopped for short time this is a 3.o litre engine in a 1994 plymouth voyager


Blown head gasket, you can add some aluma seal to your radiator some times this helps, never open radiator cap when engine is hot.

1997 Honda Magna VF45c 750 clutch adjustment


Did you do an oil change recently? Sometimes a motor cycles clutch shares the oil with the engine and a different kind of oil then the bike requires will cause the clutch to slip. This happens alot especially if someone switches to some types of synthetic oil when the bike had regular oil before the oil change.
