1990 Festiva~ Oil found in Radiator :(

Asked by Jul 19, 2010 at 01:39 PM about the 1990 Ford Festiva

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

OK... I'm in a tight spot... I found Oil in the Radiator of my 1990 Festiva. Kinda backwards, isn't it? So I rebuilt the motor and had it magnafluxed and pressure tested. It didn't show any problems with the head or block. I put the motor together and everything was fine for about 3,000 miles and then the Oil was back in the cooling system. I can't find anyone with any knowledge about this problem :(  If you can help please let me know... this is very strange!
