What problems can engine oil in the radiator cause?

Answer

Getting oil in your radiator can have some serious implications on your vehicle. In theory, the oil will attack your valves and hose and break them down. Depending on the amount of oil that has gotten into your radiator depends on how severe the problem is. Most of the time your engine will be so stressed because of the oil in the radiator it will not last long enough for you to see the degradation of your valves and hoses. It is best to have a mechanic take a peek at the radiator and determine the best course of treatment.
