Thread: F650gs coolant in oil

    F650gs coolant in oil

    My 2001 f650gs overheated due to a radiator leak,
    and now thereís coolant in the oil. Any thoughts or ideas
    on how to fix this? Head gasket? Cracked head?

    Most of the time a pump-up test of the radiator is in order. Barring having the real kit, pump sorta looks like a sports ball pump, I have drilled a hole in a (spare) radiator cap any used low pressure to check and listen (gurgling) for the air leakage and where itís coming from.

    All that said, chances are itís a head gasket especially if the bike had been run hot at one time. Most repairs are going to require some disassembly. Some changes in coolant (anti-freeze) actually helped degrade the head gasket over time.
    Let us know how you make out.
    Good luck.

    I would also suspect your water pump seal.

    Here is the best resource for F650 Tech.
