Tom Demyan

probably, perform a cylinder pressure test to confirm,.

Bob Beaman

Likely either a head gasket or cracked cylinder head. Coolant in the exhaust is never a good thing.

Stacy Butterfield

How do I know if my head is cracked water is coming out the exhaust mNifold there isn't any water in oil

Bob Beaman

You can have a bad head gasket or cracked head with out getting water into the oil. It depends on exactly where the gasket or head failed.
