oil in coolant

#1 by Guest , Wed Jun 13, 2018 6:09 pm

Started l200 today havinh been sat for few years. noticed pressure in top pipe, took off rad cover and radiator seems to be full of thick black oil,, the oil cooler has no water connection so I guess it cannot be that...

is there a water connection to the turbo? what are the connections on the back of the alternator?...

I am guessing cracked block but where there is life?????


Regards

water and oil feed to the turbo could be that or head gasket

thanks but I think the purity of the oil must be from block/or head problem. If it was mixing in the turbo I suspect it would be more of an emulsion... this is instant black thick oil.

just bought doner with broken chassis so engine swap is the next move...

my suspicion would be head gasket or cracked head, not come across a turbo putting that much oil in the water before

yes it sat with water in it after I changed the top hose, I intended to replace the lower and fill with coolant... but forgot and only during our big freeze did i remember to do so, i guess i was too late,,, i just picked up an o2 model so I will pull the engine and make put on my own ancilliaries...

probably get back what i paid for the wreck by selling the left over bits,

when it was originally parked up and you'd changed the top hose ......... did you change the top hose to cure it overheating by any chance ?

Just make sure fuel pumps etc are same if changing engine , if my memory serves me right 2002 was the year that Mitsi changed from Non Ecu, cable operated pumps over to Fly ByWire ( FBW ) pumps controlled by the ECU and no physical throttle cable. It is very doable but just check before hand so you are aware of any pitfalls

Yes they are different pumps etc. I did this change on the same truck a few years ago, Last night when I saw the donor I momentarily forgot how much work and messing was involved in the change over, also I recall that my crankshaft position sensor is bodged so am truly unenthusiastic now about the change over.

Is there any way to tell easily whether my " oil getting into the water issue" is in the head or in the block..

My existing engine is a 2001 block with a 2003 head on it... putting a 2001 head on might be easier than the alternative...

There is no easy way that I can think off , other than take the head off and get it pressure tested, that would soon show any signs of cracks

going to start in the morning, Ill put the head off the donor onto the 2003 car, and if the problem is cured then I know the head was the problem, it is such an extreme fault that it should be obvious, if not, then Ill do the rings and bearings on the donor block and the oil pump etc and reunite it with its head in the 2003 car...

thanks for the help..
