there can be a leak from the intake manifold without any antifreeze mixing with your oil, i personally experienced this problem on a 1986 sentra after a changed the head gasket, i apparently had scaped a little to hard on the intake when cleaning it for new gaskets. if its a small leak it would probably just be evaporating in the combustion chamber, but it can and probably will become a problem that needs attention quickly. have a trusted mechanic take a look at it as soon as possible, maybe have them do a compression check to see if there are any possible leaks. well good luck

How do you check for a blown intake gasket?

Look for leaking antifreeze/coolant. Usually you can see it leaking around the top of the engine. Also check your oil, if it looks milky it has been mixed with coolant and you intake manifold gasket is leaking. That being said, it is possible to have a leaking intake gasket with no sign of leaking antifreeze. Most intake manifold issues/leaks are coupled with poor engine performance and even sputtering and lack of power.


Is it possible to buy pre mixed coolant for a car?

( YES ) you can buy premixed engine coolant ( antifreeze mixed with water ) or concentrated antifreeze


What is the purpose of engine coolant?

Antifreeze, or engine coolant, is a liquid used to transport heat away from an engine. Antifreeze is mixed with water to lower the freezing point of the liquid to protect components in cold temperatures.


What do you mix antifreeze with?

In a vehicle engine cooling system : ( DISTILLED WATER is PREFERRED ) Usually mixed 50 / 50 with antifreeze , Ford states not to exceed 60 % antifreeze in the mix


Can propylene glycol antifreeze and ethylene glycol antifreeze be mixed?

Yes, Ethylene glycol and Propylene glycol are very similar chemically, therefore, can be mixed without any bad consequences for the engine.

What is the antifreeze fluid level for a 1998 ford explorer?

When the engine is cold , the coolant ( antifreeze and preferably distilled water mixed 50 / 50 , no more than 60 % antifreeze ) is up to the cold mark in the engine coolant white plastic reservoir


Can you mixed antifreeze colors?

No you can't. Dex Cool antifreeze which is Orange. And regular antifreeze will not mix.


What are three advantages of antifreeze?

Antifreeze provides corrosion protection ( until the corrosion protection package is " used up " ) It RAISES the boiling point and LOWERS the freezing point of the water in the engine cooling system * engine antifreeze is usually mixed 50 / 50 with distilled water Ford states to not exceed 60% antifreeze


What happens if you do not change a bad intake manifold gasket on a 2000 ford explorer?

If it is an internal leak the coolant will end up in the crank case mixed with your oil and it will ruin the bearing/engine - if external leak then the engine will overheat when it runs low on coolant, and blow your head gasket


What kind of antifreeze does a 1997 Saturn series use?

The 1997 Saturn used dexcool antifreeze. The chemical compounds are different and should never be mixed, as the engine will no longer cool properly.
