Engine Cooling problem
1998 Chevy Suburban V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 147000 miles
Yesterday I was driving to the store and noticed the temperature guage flucuating up to 250 and then back to normal. I brought the truck home and parked it to let cool for about an hour. I removed the radiator cap and noticed the water level was low. I turned the truck on and added about 1 1/2 gallons of premixed radiator fluid and water. The mixture was about 95 degrees for it was stored in my garage. I test drove it and noticed the oil pressure was a little low (about 25lbs at idle). When reved up it went to at least 45lbs. I brought the truck home and checked the ol level. It was about 1/2 quart low. I added the oil and parked the truck overnight. This morning I found antifreeze on my driveway ubder the suburban. I have identified it is not the water pump but cannot tell where the leak is coming from (somewhere behind the large air conditioning bracket on the drivers' side). I checked the oil again and found it was milky. Any suggestions of what the problem might be?
have the same problem?
