You are screwed! Get that radiator flushed by a profesional ASAP! ANOTHER SUGGESTION DO NOT RUN THE MOTOR HAVE IT TOWED TO A PROFESSIONAL. IF YOU DID RUN THE ENGINE GOODLUCK BUDDY HOPEFULLY IT DIDN'T AFFECT THE ENGINE IF SO YOUR GONNA HAVE A HELL OF A TIME REPLACING ALL THOSE HOSES AND YOUR RADIATOR AND HAVING YOUR COOLANT LINE REPLACED.
Nothing will happen if you drain the cooling system and replace the coolant.
You drain the oil immediately. If you run the engine with coolant mixed with the oil you will do serious harm to the engine. If you continue to drive it in this condition you will destroy the engine.
Change oil and filter
There are a couple of things that can cause oil to get into your coolant reservoir. A blown head gasket or a broken piston ring are the most common causes.
Have the coolant changed immediately and you will be ok.
The oil filter on a crafter is to the left of the engine under the coolant reservoir.
Do you have an oil cooler? I have heard that is a possible cause, as would be the head gaskets.
if there is oil in the coolant system it could be a crack in the intake, a ruined intake gasket, a cracked cylinder head
If there is oil in the coolant reservoir that means that the oil has gotten into the cooling system. The most likely place for oil and coolant to meet is at the cylinder head gasket. I hope this isn't the case because it's a very expensive repair.
Blown head gasket, cracked hed or cracked block
On a 2007 Ford Expedition : The engine oil dipstick is on the drivers side of the engine near the engine coolant reservoir and the brake fluid reservoir
Down on what? Engine oil, check the dipstick. Coolant, check the reservoir.
If you mean coolant in the engine oil reservoir, then yes, it is slightly possible, but very unlikely, that the engine block water jacket has developed a hole between the water and oil pathways. Other than that, the head gasket is the only place where oil and water can come in contact with each other unless your car is equipped with an engine oil cooler which is internal to the radiator (very unlikely). If you are referring to coolant being in the radiator overflow reservoir, it is supposed to have coolant in it. When the engine is cool, the overflow reservoir should be around half full.
Most likely you have a gasket breach (leak) where a gasket seperates a coolant path from an oil path. This is usually in the head of an engine. Do a cylinder compression check.
This would be a primary symptom of a blown head-gasket.
Normally in the coolant reservoir recovery tank. If you have the supercharged model it is located on the radiator beneath the filler cap and oil cooler lines.
you have a big problem
Yes. By little I'm talking two tablespoons. If more, then purge and refill with coolant and water.
Although some intake manifolds do have coolant running through them, none have oil in them. The most common reasons coolant would end up in your oil reservoir ( pan ) is a blown head gasket or a cracked head.
A broken piston ring can allow oil to get into your cooling system. A bad valve seal can also allow oil into the cooling system.
first you must determine what is actually contaminating the coolant,usually in the detroit series 60 engine it is fuel oil,usually caused by faulty injector cups!
A cracked head could be the cause of the problem. This, along with a cracked head gasket would allow engine coolant to enter the oil supply. Coolant and oil do not mix well and over time, the oil looses its capability to lubricate. Check your oil for white spots and check your coolant reservoir for oil residue.
you run the risk of major bearing fatlure.
Open the hood and the Coolant reservoir on the '92 Previa is next to oil reservoir on the left side. Unscrew radiator cap from the coolant reservoir, add the 50/50 mix of coolant fluid into the reservoir. (Recommend use Prestone extended life coolant) Fill the coolant into the reservoir, it take about 3 gallon, and be sure that the coolant is pass the full mark of the reservoir. Now, turn on the car, during the engine running (about 10 minutes) kept check the level of coolant be sure it still maintains pass the full mark level. Screw back the radiator cap to coolant reservoir. Run engine for another 30 minute. This will ensure that thermostat is open and and ensure the fluid is circular all around of the radiator and hoses. Waite engine cool down, then open the radiator cap and check the coolant fluid level. If the level is low then add more coolant. Do not fill the coolant pass the full Mark's point. If the coolant fluid is still the same as in full mark then it is good. Continue to check the coolant fluid for next couple day. Besure that it is at the full level mark.
It won't run properly, you'll have to drain the oil all out.
