if it is a creamy color coming from a radiator look in the oil by looking at the inside bottom of the cap,if it is creamy too,then you have a blown head gasket. that creamy color is water and oil mixed oil mixed in with the water, you got a blown gasket
if it is a creamy color coming from a radiator look in the oil by looking at the inside bottom of the cap,if it is creamy too,then you have a blown head gasket. that creamy color is water and oil mixed here is a better answer if the coolant in tank is creamy you have water getting in oil you could have a blown head gasket, a cracked block or a cracked head all vehicles will get some creamy looking stuff on radiator cap as this is caused by condensation as there is moisture in every thing also check to see if oil level in engine is higher that waht it thould be that is a really good indication of water adding and mixing with the oil
5w30 oil, "Green" colored coolant, "Dexron plus three" trans fluid and gasolne
Oil or trans fluid is getting in the coolant system. Have it checked out now. You can ruin lots of things by driving it.
Could be a bad radiator allowing engine coolant to circulate in transmission Change fluid and filter Run engine to normal operating temperature - pull transmission dipstick and allow a drop of fluid to drop on a hot engine part - oil will smoke and coolant will sizzle If coolant present - replace radiator also Hopefully not too late
The coolant is pumped from the thermostat housing into the top of the radiator but not until the thermostat opens.
Yes, most sunscreens are oil or thick creamy lotion and both are fluid.
No. Transmission fluid lubricates the transmission. Coolant is used by the radiator to cool the engine.
Check the water pump. Examine it for traces of dried coolant that might be leaking out of the casting.
No it is normal.
this is normal,because the coolant temp sensor is supposed to be in direct contact with the cooling fluid in order to read its temperature
well, if by fluid u mean coolant than yes. If coolant is leaking, there wont be anything to cool the engine temperature. Replace the cap, there very cheap.
This is an easy one... Is the fluid green? if it is, it's coolant.. if not, its brake fluid.
Coolant should not be leaking from your transmission the only fluid in your transmission is transmission fluid. A faulty transmission seal can allow transmission fluid to leak out.
Remove the coolant reservoir, flush it out, reinstall it and refill with proper coolant.
A failed seal. For example if the fluid is coming from the water pump weep hole, the water pump has failed.
THe fluid will need flushed and changed.
Your headgasket is bad, coolant is getting into the combustion chamber, hence the thick white smoke and fluid. had that happen to my dads thunderbird a few years ago
That is the fluid preduced by the testicals to carry sperm.
The transmission fluid cooled by routing it through the radiator. The fluid probably is a milky color because the radiator had failed internally allowing the coolant and transmission fluid to mix. Check the coolant and if looks milky change the radiator, coolant, and transmission fluid.
Antifreeze keeps your coolant from freezing. It keeps your coolant more "fluid".
Oil, Antifreeze, Power steering fluid, brake fluid, transmission fluid, coolant...
Check your radiator for signs of transmission fluid ( you will know as soon as you open the radiator cap) oily, creamy, gunky buildup. The transmission cooler is built into the radiator core and it is common for this to leak allowing coolant into the transmission and transmission fluid into the cooling system.
HeyHoward==If it is coolant the engine will overheat quickly and the engine will smoke white smoke. The head gaskets will need replaced. It can be normal condensation if it is pretty clear water. Good luck, Joe
The engine obviously has some sort of contaminant on it. Such as engine oil, power steering fluid, brake fluid or possibly transmission fluid. Engine coolant will not smoke but will produce steam if it comes into contact with the engine. Track down where the smoke seems to be coming from and look for fluid residue in that area. I guess it is possible that you could also have a crack or break in the exhaust manifold near the engine.
