Oil cooler is usually the place to start looking.

Re: Anti-Freeze in Oil HELP

If you look on the side of the motor it looks like a pringles potato chip can turned sideways I don't know how else to describe it.....

mmmm pringles....... Yes, I'm hungry.

Anyway, theres replaceable orings that seal the "can" to the end caps and it should fix you right up.

Re: Anti-Freeze in Oil HELP

How bad is it?? Do you have gunk build up under your oil cap? Does your oil look like chocolate milk?? because everything in that motor uses that oil, Injectors, HPOP, IPR, ICP, bearings etc. etc. and the more it gunks up the harder it is to get out of the heads and misc parts. Now this is just my humble opinion but if its only 2 miles, I'd be calling a friend to tow me down or it would be worth the 50$ tow bill.

Re: Anti-Freeze in Oil HELP

It's not the easiest thing in the world to pull apart, another thing to consider that it might be a bad cooler. I'm unsure of a way to test them and maybe someone has a "trick" to that, but a new cooler is about 150 bucks plus core if I remember but that does not include the end caps. I'm at work and I don't have my Manuel with me or I could look it up for ya.

Re: Anti-Freeze in Oil HELP

I've never seen coolant in the oil from a bad oil cooler. Usually the opposite. Oil in coolant.

The oil pressure is (nearly) always higher than the coolant pressure...so if the oil cooler is bad...then the oil will push its way through the "bad" o-rings on the cooler into the coolant.

Coolant in the oil is typically a head gasket failure.

and noting your other thread (white smoke @ idle, & coolant loss)...supports a probable head gasket failure.

You could do a fair bit of diagnostics OR you can change the oil cooler, but if the symptoms persist...I would be looking at the head gaskets.

take care~

Dave
