Hey guys' I needs some help I have a 2004 Fire truck that ran a call yesterday and the Driver call me and said his check engine light came on and the little light in the oil pressure gauge came on
every time he revved the engine. also the Jake brakes sounded funny. when I got to the station I checked the fluids and there was a large amount of oil in the radiator. Does this sound like a oil cooler problem to you. I have not ran the engine and had it towed to the shop. when I pull the oil dip stick it is not over full and I does not good like it has anti freeze in it. Also I have not check the codes it set . Thanks for your time.

I would think the oil cooler would be the first place to look....

You need to use either Lestoil or Cascade...something non-foaming.
