Why do I have oil in my 1997 honda civic coolant reservoir tank.

A few things could have happen,
1 you overheated and blew the head gasket and now the oil in mixing with the anti-freeze,
OR due to high Mileage the head gasket has just failed and is leaking into the anti-freeze journals inside the engine.,

Did you check the oil to make sure it's not a white'ish sludge on the inside of the cap, you might be mixing both back and forth..

Loosing anti freeze 2001 tauras did pressure and head gasket check both passed what can it be

I own a 2001 Ford Taurus and two years ago it was losing anti freeze also. Found out that the plastic recovery tank located in front of right strut mount on fender well, had a small stress crack. It only leaked when engine was at opperating temperature. If that is not the solution, check all your spark plugs for a green-ish or yellow-ish color you have a cracked head. If they all have a light tan to dark tan color (on the white porcelin) you're good. One final check would be the crankcase oil. If the oil on the dip stick has a creamy look to it then your leak is in the intake manifold and also if the oil is oddly over full. If all these inspections turn up good you then have a external leak and need to have the engine at opperating temperature and park it on a clean surface over night. Inspect the engine compartment, engine and the floor with a LED flashlight not a regular bulb flashlight. The LED light will make the antifreeze slightly glow. If the heater core is leaking, the antifreeze will run out the air conditioning condensation drain hose, check with LED light.

I just bought a 1991 jeep wrangler 3 days ago now nd today i drove it on the interstate for 15 miles i was getting off the interstate and it started to smoke wen i got it home i let it kool off nd i...

Are you sure this is rust and not oil? Head gaskets can leak one way or the other or not both. Hoping you did not just buy a vehicle with a head gasket leak. Check your oil level and the color of it. Chocolate milk looking oil is a sure sigh of a one form of a head gasket leak. If your oil is low add some and pay attention to if it gets low for no apparent reason. If you truly just have a bit of rust in your antifreeze then perform, or have an anti freeze flush performed. But this alone will not make it smoke.

What is the ratio of antifreeze to water in an 1989 honda civic?

The mixture of of anti-freeze/coolant to water should always be 50-50, or 50% anti-freeze/coolant and 50% water, and the mixture should not exceed 75-25 or 75% anti-freeze/coolant and 25% water. If the mixture is more that 75-25 then the anti-freeze/coolant will not function properly in the cooling system and it can actually cause the engine to overheat, and if the mixture is below 50-50 then the anti-freeze/coolant protection will be deminished.

No heat , antifreez leak not visable...

A car this new should have a warranty right? the only other place for anti-freeze to go is through a blown headgasket into your oil. Pull out your oil dipstick and make sure it is not milky in color. If not check behind the engine and see if any coolant lines going into the firewall are leaking. When inside the car do you smell steaming coolant(anti-freeze) or hear gurgling? The temp gauge that stays on is the overheat indicator?

Leaking anti freeze

Anti-freeze leak

If it's leaking at the top of the engine down. Look at the top of the engine at the front and you'll see a bleeder valve on top a black housing. These housings like to come apart at the glued seams. If it's leaking at the lower part of the engine towards the front, it could be your water pump leaking. Check your oil and if you see the color of the oil looking like chocolate milk, your water pump needs replaced, the oil will need changing as well. Do a coolant system pressure test and see if your hoses somewhere are leaking. Also check for your surge tank leaking. This is the tank that you put coolant into.
