srry to say your problem is probably intake gasket,you most likey have no compression.look at the old plugs to see if there any rust and check to see if any water coming out the back exhaust.if there is blowing motor. not all car show in the oil

one more thing look in the water,smell it to see if you smell oil or change of color
