    Hi All,

    yesterday i took my car to one of the garage for servicing where he noticed that there is oil Lead inside the AC Coolant Compartment , He removed the A.C coolant Compartment and saw huge amount of oil inside it . He cleaned the whole thing and put fresh coolant and told me to check for a day and see if again Oil Leaks traces are seen or not . Today morning i checked it and i feel there is again Oil Traces inside the AC coolant compartment. Please advise what would could be the issue over here and what needs to be done now .

    Service guy should have checked the reason for oil mix. There could be some leak and needs fix for that.
    BTW how did you check AC Coolant compartment or you mean engine coolant? Do you have any picture?

    Can you please tell me whats AC coolant compartment?
    If you are mentioning the engine coolant COMPARTMENT then its not a good sign to see oil in it. This happens in 2 cases -

    1. Head Gasket gone
    2. Oil cooler gone.

    Get it checked at FASS immediately.

    @Ankit Gandhi, there is AC evaporator AFAIK. It could be the intercooler which has these symptoms..?
