sounds like you have a bad cap.
The engine is overheating.
Overheating can damage any seal.
Either the vent cap is no longer venting, or the reservoir is overserviced. Just a thought.
if there is engine oil in the antifreeze generally indicates a cracked head on the engine
Oil/antifreeze mix is usually caused by head gasket leaks or valve cover gasket leaks.
Thermostats determine when antifreeze enters the main cooling system. If the thermostat isn't working correctly, the antifreeze could enter the engine to late, (or not at all) resulting in an over heating engine. Another problem of having antifreeze enter the engine late, is that if your engine is very hot, possibly a little warmer than common, when the antifreeze enters the engine, the cold fluid could cause the engine block to cool down quickly, causing a cracked engine block.
side affects of breathing antifreeze odor from a cng combustible engine
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.
Should not be necessary. Venting of methane on an LNG vessel should be a very rare event. Prudent operators would avoid unnecessary venting. Any venting, if necessary, should be very warm gas.
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.

Gm Dex Cool or equivalent. The red color antifreeze.
No. Antifreeze should not mix with engine oil in any vehicle.
Look at the oil on the dipstick. If you have antifreeze leaking into the crankcase the oil will be milky.
Any antifreeze which is Dexcool approved.
Antifreeze in the oil of any engine means there is a crack in the head gasket, or worse, in the block.
If your antifreeze got hat enough to boil, you need to find out why then replace it. It will not do the job it is supposed to.
Yes, but. Antifreeze is also a corrosion inhibitor. It protects the engine and head gasket from corrosion problems. It is far better, and safer to use a 50/50 antifreeze and water mix in the engine.
