F6 699

My F6 sh*t itself

Recommended Posts


True, but if it is the oil cooler and car wasnt ran following shutdown a flush of both systems should sort it.  But hey could be head gasket, rare though.

oil pressure > cooling system pressure

Except when the car is shut down and the cooling system is still pressurised. 

 

Yeah nah I reckon you guys are on the money. Oil cooler fails, dumps hot oil into the cooling system, temp goes up, op shuts it down and shows us a lovely pic of the coolant filled with oil.

 

Op didn't mention if he had an oil pressure warning but he did say that there was no oil on the dipstick when he shut it down. If there was no, very low or intermittent oil pressure then it is possible that some coolant got into the motor via the oil cooler.

 

Depending on how hot it got it there could be head sealing issues after repairs are made, if it is the oil cooler. If it's the coffee maker I guess he'll have to file for divorce.

 

I guess we'll have to wait and see the extent of the damage.

that's my point, colour aside, when the trans cooler bypass's, the first symptoms aren't over heating.

You can't put colour aside because that is the very first thing that will tell you what oil the coolant is contaminated with.

Update
They removed the oil cooler and tested it and it "blew bubbles" so they've ordered another 
They will fully flush the cooling system too he said. 
I said you need to dump the oil and check for water too so hopefully they will do that 
What other checks need to be done?

Will need a few flushes of both engine oil and cooling system

Replace your thermostat as it may be knackered from over heating as well

I guess it wouldn't hurt to have a look at the dipstick for water and the coolant for oil for a while to make sure that the head hasn't warped.

Who is paying. If its you . Get a nipple from a N/A BF and leave the cooler off then later fit an sandwich plate with oil/air cooler. I take the stock engine oil coolers off for the concern of the issue you had.
