Hi all, I have a bit of oil in my coolant and some coolant dripping from my inspection plate.....can not see where its coming from.

No coolant in my oil......sound like a head gasket to you?

were are you seeing the oil with the coolant? coming out of the plate or in the actual radiator ?if its coming out of the inspection plate it could be a freeze plug behind the trans bell housing.now as to the coolant that is determined by the questions asked above.

O.K. I will start with a compression check...need to do that anyway. I see tiny droplets of oil in my coolant overflow bottle. The coolant drips off the bottom of the bell housing and I can not see where its coming from.

Freeze plug makes sense for the coolant leak, but what about the droplets of oil at the bottom of my bottle?

Just put on a new bottle and a set of All Terrain TA's...was kind of hoping I had the bugs out of it for awhile.
