my friend just gave back his leak down test.. isnt it true that if you run the car (cold) with the cap off you can tell by bubbles?

Do you have water in the oil? If not you mite of had a crack in the oil cooler in the radiator. Mine had the same thing going on I replaced radiator and seems ok. I opened the radiator cap and disconnected the oil lines and pluged one side of oil cooler put air hose in other and mine blew bubbles. Radiator was junk.

The water in your overflow looked and smelled like sh!t a month ago when I seen your car. Flush out the radiator and overflow tank. put in clean water/antifreeze and watch it for a few days.

Then if you see new signs of oil in it....try disconnecting the oil cooler lines from the radiator and join them together with a double female connector. Sometimes, the cooler will crack as mentioned above and force oil into the water....

I suspect the tank is just full of crud, tho....Punk
