Oil in the radiator is usually an indication of a leaky head gasket.

Get a new radiator or flush it out?

The automatic transmission oil cooler is built into the radiator. If the oil cooler developes a leak the oil mixes with the engine coolant.

Okay 2 types of oil cooling system fitted to these trucks. Light duty , and heavy duty. light duty, Oil cooler lines go from the oil filter housing to the radiator. oil cooler is built into the radiator. Heavy duty, Oil cooler lines go from the oil filter housing under the radiator and in front of the radiator there is a mini oil cooler.

(Oil floats) mostly mixes with the water forming emulsion which clogs the radiator.

You need to have the radiator flushed immediately

Sure you can drive it but, you need to ask yourself, why is there oil in the radiator? If you did not pour oil in the radiator then you have a problem. Most likely cause is a blown head gasket. This is extremely serious, and will destroy the engine if not repaired.

Yes. The engine oil cooler is in the drivers side tank and transmission oil cooler is in the passenger side tank of the radiator.

The AT oil cooler is in the bottom tank of the radiator. If you are seeing oil leaking from one of the lines from and to the transmission connection could be loose.

You have a blown headgasket or cracked cylinder head/engine block. It can also be a leak at the oil cooler. Its at the oil filter mounting, check that 1st.

If it is a water-filled or oil-filled radiator, it will leak fluid.

Take it to an oil and lube shop and have them flush the radiator.

Does it have 2 lines coming from the top of the oil filter, and going to the radiator. If so that is the oil cooler. You need to replace the RADIATOR Those 2 lines go into the radiator so it can cool the oil, and the tubes are leaking oil into the coolant.

hi, blown head gasket, cracked head or block or automatic transmission oil cooler in radiator leaking

User Avatar

Some vehicles run oil line through the radiator for cooling, instead of using seperate oil cooler, which just looks like a mini radiator.

The transmission oil cooler is located in the radiator. A leak that allows oil in the radiator will also allow coolant to enter the transmission doing great harm. Check the transmission , after driving and the oil is hot water vapor will come out of the dip stick tube.

you find the oil can by the radiator in Nancy's room. but you need to have dextor fix the radiator first.

User Avatar

if you have tansmission cooling lines or oil cooling lines that go into the radiator, the cooler in side might have a hole in it.

User Avatar

Really need to know the year and engine size. But you can check this, Does your engine have 2 lines just above the oil filter that run up the side of the engine and goes into the radiator on the drivers side ? If so then that is the engine oil cooler lines and the tubes in the radiator were the oil flows through to cool the oil are probley leaking into the radiator coolant. IT happens often. WILL NEED TO REPLACE RADIATOR. And flush out the cooling system real GOOD. Did your engine freeze from lack of antifreeze ? If the radiator fluid is cheery red looking then the transmission cooler that is built into the radiator is leaking. REPLACE RADIATOR. GOOD LUCK.

If your vehicle has an engine oil cooler ther will be two hydraulic lines going to each side of your radiator. If there are only lines going to one side of your radiator, then it doesn't have an engine oil cooler.
