Oil in coolant tank after gesket got replaced
After the top gesket got replaced, i saw oil in the
coolant water tank , but wasnt there before the
gasket was replaced, what could be wrong?
Which gasket are u referring to. Flush coolant and see if it's still there, if it is, u have a blown head gasket
The top gasket.....
If the oil is reddish in color, and this is an automatic, possible oil cooler in the radiator developed a crack. To repair you would have to pull the radiator and see if could be repaired. To determine if it is your head gasket, just do a compression test and see if all the cylinders are close in compression of each other, if not then something wrong with the head gasket.
The oil is dark, lets say black , i think i will check th radiator, and yes its an outomatic.... Thanx alot
Hopefully it is just dirty trany fluid and not the head gasket.
Rowefast, iam not a mechanic, so were exactly on the rediator should i look?
The oil cooler for the trany is under the radiator cap usually inside the radiator. It would need to be pressurized to see if it leaks.
It is where the trany lines run into the radiator.
