Oil In The Cooling System On
Ford 3.8L (232 CID) Engines
AERA member machine shops have reported multiple instances of vehicles with cooling systems contaminated by engine oil.
One possible cause cited in many of the reported cases was that the engines were permitted to freeze up during cold ambient temperatures. Usually one or more of the core plugs was pushed out of the cylinder block, but the damage is not limited to that alone. The ice inside of the cylinder block water jacket expands and partially crushes an oil gallery.
When the core plugs are replaced and the cooling system is refilled, oil finds its way into the radiator. The cylinder block is no longer serviceable and must be replaced.
