Where is the peep hole located on the waterpump I was told that could get blocked and cause this

Hi

that is not a peep hole, rather it is a Weep hole

it is located at the bottom of the pump shaft

Hi

Also that would not cause, reason being it weeps out

if blocked , it would go back into cooling system

not the oil pan, it is for when the seal fails

Ok I just want to rule out everything before overhaul, I was told that the compressor could leak antifreeze into the oil. I ask because a mechanic is going to be eager to say that the engine needs overhaul

Hi

YES , Compressor can cause this

the only way to check is take off the air discharge

line, pinch off the coolant lines or join them (best way)

then run engine at 1200 RPM for hour or so, see if it starts to drop

does your engine Temp go up and down ??

a little bit

Thank you for that

if it goes up and down , like in 5 minute period, it is

a Head Gasket

When its flat its steady, but in hills goes up, but that was when I noticed that it had ran low in antifreeze. Now it seems to be cooling better with the antifreeze toped

HI

OK steady, no coolant and even temp , no Head gasket issue

I go after the oil cooler, after you check the compressor
