Q: Oil in coolant.

asked by on

Oil in coolant in radiator on my Hummer.

Oil in your coolant is a bad sign. This usually indicates a leaking head gasket or cracked head. A cooling system pressure test and block test will be able to determine this. I suggest having a qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect and repair your Hummer.
