Oil/antifreeze mix is usually caused by head gasket leaks or valve cover gasket leaks.
if it leaks on left side of engine at hose,could be a bad water pump! on 3.1 engine. if pump is bad it will leak out of releif hole on bottom of pump!
Yes. Antifreeze is actually pumped through the intake manifold. If the gasket is bad it is possible that it leaks out
A bad head gasket is the most common cause of antifreeze mixing in the oil. The antifreeze will dilute the oil and it will eventually cause your engine to seize up.
You know the heater core is bad when your truck leaks antifreeze onto the floor of the passenger side.
smell of antifreeze and no visable leaks usually indicates that the heater core needs replacing
Some people say that the smell of hot antifreeze smells like mold. It could be possible you are smelling the antifreeze from the engine.
Blown head gasket.
If by water you mean engine coolant, yes. Loss of coolant, antifreeze, is a major cause of overheating.
cracked head or bad gasket
bad hose like a pin hole or bad clamp
Its probably your water pump, which pumps coolant through the engine block to cool it down.
if there is engine oil in the antifreeze generally indicates a cracked head on the engine
Same color as what?
Need to get a pressure tester for rad. Do not pump up over 10LBS. And then look at the rear corners of the intake real close for leaks. The vortec engines are none for intakes leaking antifreeze. BE SURE TO CHECK ENGINE OIL CLOSELY FOR ANTIFREEZE
Yes, If to much leaks out this will cause the engine to over heat, smoke and or stall hence the name engine COOLant :)
If you smell antifreeze, there must be a leak somewhere. Have the cooling system pressure tested.
possibly the water pump or a bad hose
usually a bad head gasket or cracked head
Probably a bad head gasket.
Find where it is running out and repair the cause.
A bad head gasket can do that or an engine oil cooler gone bad in the radiator. The year, make and model info would help.
When running the air conditioner, there might be a small leak of fluid on the 2000 Alero after it is parked. This is normal as it is only the overflow valve being released. Always check the antifreeze level before operating the vehicle in the summer to prevent low antifreeze warnings.
The green liquid is antifreeze. Check your motor for water leaks. This can have a bad affect if left unattended. You can overheat your motor and do damage.
