    Red face Oil in coolant, common fault, easy fix????? Newbie Girlie

    Hi
    I've got a 2001 Astra DTi diesel, found the other day that i have had oil leaking into the coolant, have looked in Haynes manual and they suggest replacing seal oil coolant or does the whole cooler need replacing.
    Is this an easier enough job?

    Thanks Newbie girlie

    Just another point too
    Noticed that the engine seems very sluggish no poke in it!! foot can be right down on excelorator sometimes and not going anywhere, my 2 year could walk quicker than me driving i'm sure.
    Any suggestions.

    Thanks

    Thumbs Up i had this

    i had this and the only answer was to replace the oiler cooler and flush all coolant and do it a few times.

    hope this helps
