    ...happens to my Dad's Isuzu Highlander. Walang oil leak (or at least wala kami makita), hindi rin nagbabawas yung oil (and water) at yung takbo nung highlander oks naman, parang walang problem. But everytime we open the radiator cover ang daming oil na nakamix dun sa water. Ano po kaya ang problem? Any recommended talyer na expert on this?

    TIA

    Are you sure it's oil, and not rust? Oil does not mix in water. It stays on top and is immiscible.

    it sure is oil. and let me correct myself, it's not (literraly) mixed with water but rather, i meant to say there are small amounts of oil in the radiator, together with the water.

    Have your cylinder head gasket replaced ASAP. I'm quite sure that's the source of your problem.

    +1 on cylinder head gasket. Get it checked by a reputable shop as soon as possible. baka lumala pa ang problema.

    baka mag sharon cuneta yan engine.. mag tubig at langis.. pa check mo na agad bago ka pa abutin ng overheat. or baka meron lang portion ng gasket na may leak pa try mo pa check ang higpit ng mga bolts

    Baka naman po coolant lang ... may mga coolant kasi na pag luma na ay parang oil ang tingin natin.
