The sillicate sin the antifreze react with the chmber of the engine
if you run your engine without antifreeze your car will overheat and ruin the engine.
crack the engine block and oil mixes with water or antifreeze.
you have a big problem
vehicle will overheat. just dump the oil and antifreeze , flush engine and refill with clean oil
It will destroy the engine from lack of lubrication and overheating.
if there is engine oil in the antifreeze generally indicates a cracked head on the engine
If you run it that way you will cause internal damage.
I BELIEVE straight antifreeze will freeze at 7 degrees Fahrenheit but a 50 / 50 mix is good to around -34 degrees Fahrenheit ( antifreeze and preferably distilled water ) Also , the engine sensors for the engine coolant temperature won't work properly
When antifreeze is poured into your oil, it weakens your oil cause it to break down prematurely and can cause your engine to fail by spinning an engine bearing and even smoke. This is also a sign of a blown head gasket.
If you start and warm up your engine: 1) The oil gets very foamy and mucky, and does not circulate through the engine properly. 2) The water in the antifreeze can heat up until it turns to steam, which expands with great force, and breaks some part of the engine. It's best to have the oil changed. That will empty the engine of the oil and antifreeze mix.
Blown Head gasket. If you have a 3.8 liter v6, it happens commonplace with that engine.
i dunno maybe it goes yellow coz that's wot happens if it lacks potassium and nitrogen
side affects of breathing antifreeze odor from a cng combustible engine
If windshield washer fluid was accidentally put in where antifreeze should be, expect rusting and heat ups. Also expect engine to overheat quickly.
The engine coolant reservoir is in the engine compartment , on the passenger side , about the middle ( 50 / 50 mix of antifreeze and preferably distilled water , do not exceed 60 % antifreeze )
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.
Doubtful !... The antifreeze is added to the radiator - to keep the water above freezing point. There is no way of the engine knowing how much antifreeze is circulating.
in some case it will. the composition of antifreeze is different by colour. in some engines the chemicals react with the engine parts (i.e. gaskets or seals) and cause the parts to fail. use the proper antifreeze for your engine.
If you have water instead of antifreeze in your cooling system, it will freeze! You won't be able to start the car, because the engine is connected to the water pump (which won't be able to move). If you have nothing in your cooling system (no water, no antifreeze, nothing else), then you need your head checked. Your car won't start either.
The purpose of antifreeze in cars is to keep the engine from freezing in cold weather.
It require the G12 antifreeze.
Engine coolant is what I'm assuming you are talking about. Engine coolant is a mix of water and etholyn glycol (antifreeze). It pulls heat away from your engine block that builds up from the friction of moving parts. The coolant mix allows the coolant to get cold to a point and not freeze because of the etholyn glycol. It is also not good to put straight antifreeze into your engine because antifreeze does not have as much cooling potential as water antifreeze mix. Also if you have just antifreeze in your engine the antifreeze will boil at a much lower temperature than a mix of aproxamalty 50/50.
antifreeze does not enter the engine at any time. locate and follow your radiator hoses and follow then and check for cracks or punctures.
Clean it out!! water will not hurt an alternator but Antifreeze will breakdown the varnish on the Stator windings! Oils is bad but Antifreeze is worse.
