You have a blown head gasket or a cracked head. STOP driving this car immediately or you will do serious damage to the engine. It will need the gasket replaced and the head checked.

because you have a bad head gasket and oil and coolant are getting into the combustion chamber from the passages.


Coolant getting into the fuel or oil.


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.


If air or fluid was getting into the oil passages. Is the oil looking "bubbly" or "milkshake" like? Then coolant is getting into the oil, either by head gasket or somewhere else. If it smells gassy then fuel is getting into the oil.


You are getting water into the coolant. Most likely cause is a failed radiator/oil cooler. If the coolant level keeps reducing and transmission oil level keeps increasing then the above answer is correct.


Oil is high because of the low density of the coolant.


There's a good chance that coolant is getting mixed in with your oil.


If you are only leaking coolant into the exhaust and use the type with copper in it, then yes, it should stop the leak. If coolant is getting into the oil or exhaust is getting into the radiator then no, none of them will do any good.


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.


Oil in the coolant tank indicates a head gasket leak.


Oil or trans fluid is getting in the coolant system. Have it checked out now. You can ruin lots of things by driving it.



Oil and water do not mix. oil will float on top of coolant if you remove radiator cap this will be very visible, on the other hand coolant in oil will look milky white.


Coolant is getting into the ATF possibly through a hole in the oil cooler


An oil coolant?æ hose is a tube or pipe that allows engine oil to circulate via the radiator in order to cool down. Without an oil coolant hose, oil will get to hot to operate efficiently.


If this happens only when engine is cold it is a normal condition If this hasppens when engine is at normal operating temperature it may be a sign of head gasket leakage Check to see if oil is getting into coolant or coolant getting mixed with engine oil


Engine? 3.1L V6 are notorious for intake manifold gasket leaks. get it fixed soon or your engine is at risk. My Lumina had oil in coolant and coolant in oil. If there is tan foamy stuff on oil fill cap, coolant is in oil too.


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. This may be an indication of a bad head gasket. Or if you notice coolant getting mixed with the engine oil or engine oil getting mixed with the coolant. Also a sign of a bad head gasket.


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.


You have coolant getting mixed in with the oil. The head gasket and intake manifold gasket would be your most likely culprits.


The coolant has oil in it. Possible causes are a failed headgasket, or a leaking oil cooler,


No , if you start the engine than the oil and coolant will mix and it will also be in the oil filter


Moisture is getting into the oil pan. If you are loosing coolant with no apparent leak then you may have a blown head gasket.


Assuming you mean what causes engine coolant getting into the crankcase oil, most commonly a bad head gasket or a cracked head is the culprit.


not supposed to be there
