Hey Heather==What is the bucket you speak of? Possibly it is the coolant recovery jar. Check all of the hoses and if it isn't leaking from the hoses and is shooting up out of the recovery jar you probably have blown head gasket. goodluckJoe
if there is engine oil in the antifreeze generally indicates a cracked head on the engine

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.
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.
possibly your motor mounts. i had the same issue with my old sunbird
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.
In the engine coolant reservoir in your engine compartment on the passenger side ( usually a 50 / 50 mix of antifreeze and preferably distilled water ) Ford states to not exceed 60 % antifreeze
The 1994 Pontiac Sunbird 3.1 liter engine windshield washer pump can be found on the firewall in the engine compartment. The windshield washer pump will be on the drivers side firewall.
Antifreeze, or engine coolant, is a liquid used to transport heat away from an engine. Antifreeze is mixed with water to lower the freezing point of the liquid to protect components in cold temperatures.
Your engine should be cold ( to be on the safe side) when adding antifreeze/coolant. i let the car sit overnight and then add it.
