Coolant mixing with oil once radiator connected.Wored until so

SOme might this funny but its really not since this is a lude and where enthusiasts obviously somethings going on.story.Bought the ran ran fine for a month decided to pull the engine out clean it change rear main seal etc.Put the whole thing together gearbox n all works fine down the street.Come back put in the radiator fill it up and it ****ing mixes in the oil .Now Ive obliviously ****ed some pipe up some where .Also this happened last time before I took the head apart so its obviously a pipe somewhere. Here are the usual radiator connection pipes.

Frist one


The funny thing is when the motors running there's smoke coming out of here.Not alot just worth mentioning incase it sparks someones knowledge of where else I might have gone wrong with piping.


This one to bottom of radiator


This one Runs from above the gearbox all the way around to the bottom one on the next pic in the firewall




Any suggestions? IM gona be pulling the back manifold off to get more shots of the other pipes but is anything wrong so far? If the the pics are too **** ill borrow a better phone

Re: Coolant mixing with oil once radiator connected.Wored until so

But it did that after the first time i ripped the engine out and put it back together and I never seperated the head...only cleaned n painted everything. could it be I ****ed up the pluming on oil cooler and the engine still worked till coolant was introduced?




Anyone got a real life pic of the plumming for that on the back of there block please?

Re: Coolant mixing with oil once radiator connected.Wored until so

JUst a look ive got thoes 2 back to front the bottom hose oil coolers going to the pipe and the top one into the block so there reversed.Would thht make any kind of difference.? im definetly starting to think head gasket now ...Is it possible to put the headgasket the wrong way on allowing the mixing of the two?

Re: Coolant mixing with oil once radiator connected.Wored until so

I am almost certain its the oil cooler.I either installed it wrong I definitely mixed up the piping on it its backwards.OR even more commonly after looking on the net oil coolers commonly crack and cause a mix at that point.Ill post results tomorrow

Re: Coolant mixing with oil once radiator connected.Wored until so

Honestly the head gasket would be my first guess when you say your coolant is contaminated with engine oil. Both of the lines going in and out of the oil cooler carry coolant. There is no way that coolant and oil could mix there unless your oil cooler itself was somehow damaged. You said this is common but I've never heard of an oil cooler cracking. Again I would lean HEAVILY towards head gasket. Good luck.

Brother... its your car you can do as you wish. You're soliciting strangers on the net for advice on your rig... we are giving you our opinions.

Re: Coolant mixing with oil once radiator connected.Wored until so

water..only stage where there is coolant is the pipe that comes from from the firewall and back into the pipe at the back near the water pump pipe my guess its from there onwards.

Im gona take off the head and try look for pics exactly where the coolants meant to flow through the block n stuff and follow it until I find the source of the problem.Gona take ages.Hopefully there's pics of oil holes and coolant holes in the manual or somewhere for the block and that.This is driving me absolutely insane.I have done so much work on this.

Anyone got any guides or pics for coolant lines or oil lines drawn up for both in engine and outside parts would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Coolant mixing with oil once radiator connected.Wored until so

I got some Simple questions .Is there only meant to be oil going to head whatsoever no coolant past the head gasket at all? so where the coolant goes in the side automatically go straight to the block?


by the side I mean the main radiator hose and the spots on the side like heater hose and that.Do they all go straight to the block? and or around the pipes.

Re: Coolant mixing with oil once radiator connected.Wored until so

The head is kept cool by coolant passing through. But oil keeps the valves lubricated.

You say a bit of smoke is coming out of here. Where is here? Between the typos and misspelled words I'm having trouble trying to understand what you are trying to say here.

Coolant runs from the engine to the radiator and back through big hoses. It runs from the engine to the heater coil and back through the medium hoses. The small hoses are used to tell sensors how warm or cool the coolant is except for the coolant line around the oil filter. That one causes coolant to regulate the temperature of the pipe that oil goes in and out of enroute to the filter.

The head gasket requires the same tension at all bolts in order to apply the same tension (or squish) between the block and the head.

Think about a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. If you press the middle of the bread jelly squirts out the sides. Squish one side more than the other and jelly squirts out the other side. Press on it evenly with a piece of plywood and jelly squirts out all four sides pretty evenly.

Now if you have installed a pair of hoses backwards, then yeah it could cause coolant issues. It's a push/pull thing where the coolant is supposed to flow like a busy highway. Put one guy on it driving backwards and yeah... causes issues.

So I say again, download a service manual and follow the steps it provides to make sure you've got all liquids flowing the correct direction.

Once upon a time I had the misfortune of installing a serpentine belt on an F150 where it fit, but was routed wrongly. Luckily no issues resulted but for a few seconds it had the water pumping turning backwards. A deafening squeal resulted and it was quickly corrected.

Between the typos and misspelled words I'm having trouble trying to understand what you are trying to say here. Try doing this in your 3rd language .Also I included a picture underneath what I said.I think Ill figure this whole thing out on my own.Everyone and expert until u need actual help.Im going to upload the FIRST pictures of the coolant and oil pathways through the block and head anyone has on this professional site tomorrow.WHY had this not been covered yet? yes coolant goes to the head in very tiny small sections close to where the cylinder heads make combustion.I got pics they are very small rooms that fill with coolant.
