examine the oil on the dipstick if it looks like an emulsion than it's a blown head gasket

Yes it has emulsion. Do I need to take the top for engineering or just replace gasket?

You must take the complete head off ,,, there's no easy way, The most common cause for this is an overheated engine,

I suspect my corsa bakkie is mixing oil and water because when i opened the oil cap it had a greyish colour but when checking the dipstick the oil is black, what could be the problem?

Mine the mix is only in the water bottle, what could be the cause? Oil cap and dip stick is normal black oil. Any suggestions?
