Oil in coolant ! again
Hi, I know there is many post on this but ..
Yesterday I did flush my coolant because of that black (Chocolate Milk) substances in the Degas bottle! It just dont smell oil at all but looks like it !
After dropping the whole coolant I can tell there is at least 5 or 6 quart of that stuff in the whole system floating on top! and Underneath RED Coolant! I did read RED collant is bad for those engine, it need to have the Motorcraft Premium Gold. Could it be only BAD coolant that did react ??
To get 5 or 6 quart of oil in the coolant it would have to draw 5 or 6 quart of oil from the engine ??? thats not the case ! I may say my truck did consume about 2 quart in 1 year (amsoil synthetic 15w40 marine diesel). Also my Degas bottle is not overfilling , its stay constant at the MIN line.
This week I am changing my engine oil ! For now I run water only in my cooling system to clean it as much I as can ! And try to find a solution before putting new coolant in it !
Could it be transmission oil ??
Many post are saying Oil Cooler, Injectors cups, .. but these would make the engine oil go down and the coolant level UP ???
Thanks for the help !
