Oil inside coolant is not a good sign... May end up being a blown head
Uh, no. An engine that has some oil on the outside may be messy, but it's no big deal. But oil in the coolant (or coolant in the oil), is a major issue.I showed it to man who works in car repair service and he told me that there is no oil on engine so it should be ok.
That's just pure neglect. I can't imagine what they said to explain that!I cracked a head in my 86 Turbo Dodge Colt. Dodge painstakingly took two weeks to fix it under warranty to find out they reused engine bolts and had to do most of the work over. When I left the Dealership the first time I decided to check the Oil. It was full of Coolant as the block was never drained.
Hi. Coolant fluid was never changed. So maybe i should try changing it and cleaning it. If there is something bad i should see oil in it again?I would recommend a good, complete flushing as well as removing/cleaning of any accumulation in the surge tank.
Once completed, operate the car normally and see what develops over time.
You may be seeing the results of cross contamination.....like the previous owner added something to the cooling system that is incompatable with Dex-Cool......the original, factory fill.
Also, when Dex-Cool is beyond its five year service life it gets rather dark and oily feeling......it will also have a tendency to coat the walls of the plastic surge tank.
That would be correct for the most part.......there likely will be some residual 'goo' that accumulates after servicing but as long as the level doesn't rise, odds are it (what you are currently seeing) is just old oily coolant.Hi.
