2000 Intrepid DOHC 2.7L 24v Coolant In Engine Oil - Shop Cant Daignose
My car has been diagnosed with coolant in the engine oil. I took it to a shop today at 11:30am and they called just before 4:30pm to tell me they cannot figure out why there is coolant in the engine oil? Is this something any shop can diagnose routinely? I have been told that this particular engine has the evil water pump that has a rear seal that can fail and actually allow coolant to leak into the engine. Could the be missing this possibility? Would the normal tests to check for blown head gaskets/warped heads clue them in about this water pump? It may not be the water pump, but for some reason they can't figure this out and it appears I have to pay them to diagnose, but I will have to find the answer for them.
Normally coolant in the oil is the diagnosis simply because the only way for that to happen /// IMO \\\ is the failure of a head gasket.
Agree with Tom.
Okay that makes sense. That's the most common reason I'd think, but the shop cannot figure out why the coolant is leaking into the oil... Thanks for your answers guys.
