I am on my way to Co. and when I was checking my fluid levels this morning I found oil in my overflow tank.I was testing the anti freeze and everything looked fine,but when I checked to how much water I had in the tank I found oil.I started to drain the tank and about a gallon drained out until I saw evidence of oil.I check the oil and it was down a little from driving all day and I do not see any evidence of water in the oil. I have an 8v92 and I need know what is going on and can I drive it. Any suggestions?

That is coming from your oil cooler best to stop and have it repaired and the cooling system flushed



good luck

There is no way for oil to get into the water if the engine is in good enough shape to be driven.  It could be anything from a leaky gasket to a cracked head, but whatever it is, you can destroy your engine if you try to drive it any distance.

Oil in the water means that there is water in your oil.

Don, check the transmission if you have a automatic oil doesn't always get into the cooling system from the  engine.

I know on my JD loaders it is usually the oil cooler. My vote is the oil cooler, not a bad fix.

Clifford, great recommendation.  It is a bit far away from where Don is and he has some hills to climb, but not much in that area.

Nunn is north of Denver just off of I-25.  Fairly close to the WY border.

They are acknowledged two-stroke experts.  Their shop will scare the heck out of you, but everything I hear is top notch.  Back in the day when entertainer coaches were two-stroke, they all went there for their work.

there is also Stewart & Stevenson's in Commerce City, (a few miles from Denver), BIG shop. They are good people and have guys that know what they are doing. The only  drawback is .... Bring your Visa... $$$$$$$$
