Coolant was leaking below car and when I checked the overflow resvoir I found oil in the coolant system. The oil level was low, as was the coolant level, so I topped off both, but more coolant leaked below car after short trip to get car home. The temperature went up while at idle sitting at stop light. However when I got home, not coolant was lost util it set overnight, then I found that some coolant had leaked out again. The leak might be a bad hose or hose clamp, but what about the oil in the coolant?
Thanks
