If there aren't any visible leaks, its leaking internally. The 3.1L V6 engines are known for bad gaskets. Is there oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil? Is there a tan frothy substance on the oil fill cap? If so, your coolant is getting into the oil.

How is oil getting into anti freeze but not getting in the oil side 1996 Saturn?

Two basic possibities: 1st The head gasket failure is between a oil pressure gallery and coolant. Since the engine runs 45 psi oil pressure and 17 psi coolant pressure it means you can see the oil in the coolant but the tiny amount of coolant in the oil won't show. It is there and it will quickly ruin your engine. 2nd The head gasket is bad to a comustion chamber, and what you are seeing is the crud from a bad burn in that cylinder, not oil that looks very similar. Either way it needs a terardown and new head gasket set.

What tells an abnormal amount of water is being emitted for the exhaust of a car?

If you are loosing coolant from the radiator and you have an abnormal amount of white smoke from tailpipe after vehicle is at normal operating temperature.

How can coolant leak into your 1996 BMW 328i oil?

Most likely, your head gasket no longer seals properly. Coolant and oil normally circulate through separate channels in your engine. A faulty head gasket allows oil to pass into the coolant channels and vice versa. If your gasket is leaking, you will also have loss of compression in one or more cylinders and possibly white clouds of steam in your exhaust, from coolant getting into the cylinders.

What happens when water gets in a car oil system?

Bad things usually. And expensive, like having to buy a new engine. The oil should be changed, and the reason for the water getting into the oil found and corrected. A common source of coolant entry is the oil cooler since a failure can mix oil and water. Check the coolant to see it it also has oil in it.

Does a 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette have an oil cooler?

Yes, the 2000 Olds Silouette has an engine oil cooler, as well as a transmission oil cooler for the automatic tranny. The engine oil cooler is built in to the engine oil filter housing. Water/coolant enters from the engine block, circulates around the filter housing and exits through a tube to the lower intake manifold. If an engine starts getting oil in the coolant and coolant in the engine oil, this could very well be the source of the problem. An internal leak.
