Water mixing with oil and engine rolling but not starting

Asked by Nichokoya Mar 10, 2013 at 03:06 PM about the 1999 GMC Safari 3 Dr SLE AWD Passenger Van Extended

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Water or moisture build up? In the radiator or oil pan? Any liquid coming out exhaust? How much water? A cracked intake manifold could be letting water into cylinders and thus getting your plugs wet and no sparks. Did you by chance not have enough anti freeze and it froze and then cracked something?
