Had coolant Bypass line break on the road just got it home had 0 oil Pressure fixed the hoses the next day started it noticed the coolant being pushed out of radiator im guessing a Blown head gasket eventhough the temp didnt reach Critical Temp but being it has Aluminum Head and cast Block that has to be it as the bypass lines were for the Oil cooler what do u guys think ? 89 ford probe GT turbo 2.2 litre and 1 more thing the oil was HOT !! :P


Sorry for the delay. if it is like that than your head gasket is bad. that is the only two common points other than the head and cylinder wall! if you do the head gasket make sure to take it to the machine shop to be pressure checked and resurfaced j ... 1989 Ford Probe

Something electrical is playing up but what is the big question and what i need to know is this engine fly by wire or a throttle cable to the injector pump or is it common rail diesel ,because if its the later then i would suspect a computer fault ei ... Mitsubishi Montero

I have 2001 Ford Windstar w/ 3.8L. I had vehicle diagnosed when eng. light came on. It was e.g.r. valve, bad 1&3 cylinder, & mass air flow. It was running and driving pretty rough, and going thru twice as much gas. I did a full tune-up. Plugs, wires, air & oil filter, flushed radiator, the whole 9 yrds. I had it diagnosed again and said bad o2 sensor. So I bought 1. In the process of trying to get it put in, I noticed the connectors were fried down to nothing but wires w/ corrosion built up. Wel

I have 97 4runner sr5 (not 4wd) it has 244K miles on it - i took it in for an oil change and i was told that it is recommended that i get an "enging flush" and also a "radiator flush". I just checked out the toyot scheduled maintenance and i don't see anything in there about "flushes" - are "flushes" considered the same as "replace engine coolant?" also, if you can think of any other preventative maintenance that i should have completed at this time, i would appreciate your input - i am need t


The only engines I have ever seen that needed to be "flushed" were engines that had used Quaker State oil for a long time. Usually about the only good way to tell is your engine is gummed up is to remove the oil pan of the intake manifold and see how ... 1998 Toyota 4Runner

2002 buick lesabre, 3.8l V6. 65K miles. Developed a slow (1 quart every 500 miles) internal coolant leak. no oil discoloration, no other problems. any idea where the leak may be? I used Barsleak, and it seems to have stopped it for now. Using Dexcool. Do I have to get it fixed - will I damage the engine at this point?


Could you please add more details? do you see any oil in engine coolant? do you see any oil spot on the parking lot when you park the car? \015\012If you add some more info we'll be able to answer you more effectively \015\012thanks ... Buick LeSabre

I have a 2001 Chevy Silverado with the 6.6 duramax LB7 engine. My truck has the check engine light on that will periodically go off and then back on every 1,000 miles approx. Also my truck will blow white/ grey smoke at idle then dissapear once at operating speeds. There is no coolant lost or oil being lost to my knowledge so what gives? More imporntantly for me is to get the check engine light to go off forever! If there is some trick to do this with out ripping the dash apart.


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to get the check engine light scanned at Autozone. They do it for free. It comes on because your computer has detected a problem with your truck. They can tell you why it comes ... Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

We understand that your problem is: i have a 2001 nissan altima 2.4 enging. . .it is over heating. .i had the water pump replaced and the thermostat was removed, but the car is still overheating. . 1 repair man said the head gasket is blown and another said its not blown. . . .there is no coolant mixing with the oil. . . . what is wrong with my cay?.


Since the thermostat is removed and assuming the water pump was installed correctly when you replaced it that does indicate that the problem is a blown head gasket, cracked head or Cracked cylinder wall causing over pressure in the cooling system or ... 2001 Nissan Altima

I have a 2004 cavalier 2.2L we bought it with the timing chain broken so we changed the chain and guides and head gasket because the valves were all broken or bent and now we are getting coolant into the oil after about 20 miles of driving there is no white smoke out the exhaust and the waterpump is new so where can the coolant get into the oil without there being any getting into the cumbustion chamber


Good chance you have a cracked head. (or possibly warped). There are many passages that are close enough together but don't share proximity to the cylinder, where coolant can migrate from a water jacket to an oil passage yet never enter a cylinder at ... Chevrolet Cavalier

Well it could be the sending unit for the gauge.But odds are the oil pump or engine bearings are worn out.As the engine warms up, the metal spaces expand and the oil gets thinner. The oil pressure drops some under normal conditions, but not ... 1996 Chevrolet C1500

Blown headgasket, oil is mixed with coolant, was driven for 15 miles to auto repair shop. coolant was low, oil looked okay until reaching auto shop, next day the oil looked like coffee/cream...blue/white smoke came from the tailpipe. Idle was very rough. when the auto repair servicemen started the engine it hydrolocked. Servicemen suggested I get a new engine, but they did not completely take it apart to view full extent of possible damage. Would it be better to get the engine repaired, or repla


This is a tough question to answer. If you can afford a rebuilt engine and there is one out there, that is the way to go. Rebuilding this engine would require a lot of labor and the cost of rebuilding it may supersede the overall value of the car. Se ... 2005 Suzuki Reno

Oil leak? My 1996 Volvo 960 takes 7 qts. of oil up on a oil change. after 1,000 miles, the dipstick shows no oil. Add 1 qt. it is full again. Another 1,200 miles, same outcome. I changed the 3 seals in the oil filter housing, changed the coolant hoses that connect to the housing, also the gasket on the oil pan drain plug. All of these places I believed were the main leak, but I was wrong. Still leaks. Please help me troubleshoot this problem.


Whoa whoa ... You've said that the car takes 7 quarts of oil. That's 14 pints. Depending on which engine variant is fitted, engine oil capacity is either:\015\012\015\012 5.75 litres + 0.4 litre ... 1996 Volvo 960

If coolant was getting into oil at the rate you say, it's a miracle you haven't spun a bearing by now!!!!At best you have worn out the crank bearings (antifreeze is not a lubricant) And yes!!! you either need an entire engine bearing replacemen ... 1995 Chevrolet S-10 CA Edition

Vauxhall Cavalier V6. Oil in coolant so had head gasket replaced. Still getting oil into coolant. How is it getting in?. What is the cure?.


If you didn't have both head gaskets replaced, I would check the other one. The oil cooler is an easier place to check, so do that first. I actually removed the one on my car (it's too small to do anything anyways) and just ran a larger filter. If ... 1992 Daihatsu Charade

I have a 1999 acura cl. There is oil in the radiator and coolant overflow. It is not overheating and loosing very little oil. The hose are now getting soft and gummy. There isn't any water or coolant in the oil as of yet. About 6 months ago I notice the car was running very rough and found that there was almost no oil in it... Not sure if the last oil change was done properly. It has never leaked oil onto the ground and still isnt. It has 185K miles on it and has been service to the hilt


It seems there could be a blown head, if there is oil in the radiator. If the car ran out of oil and it was still being driven, then that could have overheated the engine and maybe warpped the a piston. Sometimes when the oil is changed at some shops ... 1999 Acura CL

Oil and Coolant leak of about 11/2 quarts coolant - 1/2 quart oil per night Leak 1 (Coolant) Appears to be coming from the radiator bottom right corner. Leak 2 (oil) Appears to be coming from the engine block or rubber blown gasket from under the block. I have checked the hoses and they are intact, as well as drainage plugs Any advice would be great!


The passenger right side of the car doesn't have any flanges for cooling system, if that's correct then your radiator has a leak or puncture.The driver side of vehicle has both the in and out flanges for the radiator. Very common to see l ... 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
