I have a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2L, there was a crack in the radiator and it was being refilled with water until it could get replaced. Well it froze and busted the S-belt. I replaced the radiator and belt, thank god that was all that was wrong. Now the truck hadn't been run ever since it had frozen and defrosted, now after fixing with to start and it started right up. I went to check all the fluids and have found water in the oil. The truck has not been driven. This would seem to be the head gasket, but how likely would that be a cracked block?
You won't be able to tell your block or heads are cracked till you take it apart. Do a leak down and cylinder pressure check to verify if you have adequate compression in all your cylinders.
