By oil, do you mean transmission fluid and coolant mixing, does it look somewhat pink/red?


Wanda, I would like to offer assistance but need a little more information. Was there an accidental filling of oil into the radiator reservoir? If so you will probably need to have the coolant flushed. Did you notice any other problems prior to the car not starting? Overheating? Puffs of white smoke coming form the exhaust?

M worried that it might cause a problem, since I bought it 2nd hand 5months back I have never filled it with water. Yes it has a pink liquid as a coolant
