Re: oil in coolant tank
Ive got oil in my coolant tank ....I had a mechanic out on friday over a starting issue and asked him about an oil leak I have .....I think he said it was coming from the Thermostat Housing Manifold ( That was from searching on line after he pointed to the leak and called the part something I forgot) and that it was feeding into the coolant .......The dip stick is just covered in oil......Is this likely the case ...can I get the Thermostat gasket replaced and will this solve the problem.
NO, IMHO Change the whole thing. They are plaggy & warp. The gaskets from ECP are about £16. The whole thing is less than £40 Inc the seal. Same amount of work. Still need new coolant. Don't want to do it twice, do you?
You are only young once, but you can be immature forever
Give a n00b the answer he will be learn for a day; show him the search button, he will learn for life.
