water in oil
when did this start?
If we're lucky just the headgasket will need replacing...if not lucky start shoppin' a new motor~
I discovered it when it quit running. The water from the radiator is going into the oil.
yes. Spann we've already done the test lap, is the oil going into the coolant, does it have a frothy-top radiator cap?...now we have to see where is the leakie at? pull and inspect each of the sparkplugs to see if normal activity is 'pon the electrode? with any luck they all will still be fine and normal...look for coolant,.oil, or carbonated~
next we can leave the plugs out and pressurize the coolant jacket to see if it is leaking into any of the cylinders~...with a pressure tester...take it upto 17 psi~
...could throw in the towel and keep track of where the bolts came from in holes in a map of a diagram of the head...and inspect where the leak to oil jacket is happening there...if we are lucky 'fel-pro- will have just turned softy on us~ a replacement (following torque tables of course) may put you right with minimal complications...bring a wrencher, and buy him a case of the beverage of his/her choice for doin' the job for you...you could lord above handing the right tools to do the job~
V8=double the fun!
Intake gasket it's also a possibility, does it have the Orange/red dexcool coolant or the green stuff
ouch, hadn't thought of that, have seen a hole at the back of the waterpump what leaks to the timing chain case on the Isuzu Implulse, ran alright but leaked coolant into the pudding~ weekend and a lot of cursing put it right.
Time to replace your intake manifold gaskets. If you want to keep the likelihood of this reoccuring to a minimum, I highly recommend the Fel-Pro MS98000T gasket kit.
IT'S DEAD JIM!!!
