Sounds like head gasket! Has it over heated at any time? If so head gasket.

Have 1987 Chev Silverado, drove 500 feet & oil pressure gauge went to max???


You have a clogged oil system or a faulty pump or possibly the wrong oil in the motor. This usually happens when the oil filter clogged for some reason. Check the oil for water contamination. If you have water in your oil you have one of several conditions. Cracked Head, Cracked block, blown head gasket or one of the retaining screws for the timing chain guide has come out and it is allowing water into the oil. You won't know exactly what the problem is until you get the engine opened up and locate the real problem. If you don't find a problem with the head gasket pressure test the head and magna flux the cylinders.

When i go to check my oil i find antifreeze in my oli. then when i changed my oli again antifreeze was coming out of the oil pan at the bottom of the motor.


Ok, You are going to have to rebuild the motor that is a given. There are several possible problems that could cause this. Blown head gasket, Cracked Head, Cracked Block, a hole rubbed in the timing chain cover if a timing chain guide came free. I had a Nissan do this. A couple of the holes that the retaining bolts go in for the timing chain guide open directly into a water channel and were letting Anti Freeze run free as well as a hole being ground into the aluminum cover over the timing chain by the chain flopping around. You won't know until you open it up and inspect everything.

Blown head gasket, cracked Head or Cracked Block. In rare cases the timing chain can rub a hole in a water channel it is close to in teh front timing cover but that only happens if the timing chain guide breaks off.

I'm having to put water in all the time, 250,000 miles, head gasket?


if there isnt any leeks that you notice then it could be. if it is smoking white smoke it probley is, it will smell sweet.it may not smell sweet if you have only been adding water.you can check it by letting it run with the cap off and if it bubbles even if they are tiny and do not stop after a while then you probley have a blown head gasket or cracked head.check you oil and see if it looks milky.means it has water in it.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION NOTE: The manufacturer recommends that the entire powertrain be removed from the vehicle before removing the cylinder heads.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  4. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Powertrain assembly
    • Intake manifold
    • Cam covers
    • Harmonic balancer
    • Timing chain front cover
    • Oil pump
    WARNING
    Align all timing marks before performing the next step.
    • Chain tensioner from the timing chain
    • Cam sprockets
    NOTE: The timing chain remains in the chain case.
    • Timing chain guides, access for the retaining screws is through the plugs at the front of the cylinder head
    • Water crossover
    • Exhaust manifold
    • Cylinder head bolts by reversing the torque sequence
    • Cylinder head and discard the gasket
    WARNING
    With the camshafts remaining in the cylinder head some valves will be open at all times. Do not rest the cylinder head on a flat service with the cylinder face down, or valve damage will result. NOTE: Clean all gasket mating surfaces. Clean the head bolt holes in the crankcase. WARNING
    Be careful when cleaning aluminum gasket surfaces to prevent damage to the sealing surfaces.
  5. Check the cylinder head for warpage; it must be less than 0.002 in. (0.05mm). If the cylinder head was resurfaced, the dimension between the combustion chamber gauge pad and the deck surface must be at least 10.5mm. To install: NOTE: Refer to Section 1 of this manual for the cylinder head torque sequence illustration. The illustration is located after the Torque Specification Chart.
  6. Install or connect the following:
    • New cylinder head gasket
    • Cylinder head, lubricate the bolts with engine oil
  7. Torque the M11 bolts, in sequence, as follows:
    1. Step 1: 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).
    2. Step 2: Turn an additional 60 degrees.
    3. Step 3: Turn an additional 60 degrees (total 180 degrees).
  8. Torque the M6 bolts to 106 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
  9. Set the camshaft timing
  10. Camshaft guide bolt access hole plugs in the cylinder heads. The plugs should be seated and snug
  11. Install or connect the following:
    • Intake cam covers
    • Oil pump
    • Timing chain front cover
    • Harmonic balancer
    • Cam sprockets
    • Chain tensioner to the timing chain
    • Timing chain guides
    • Intake manifold
    • Water crossover
    • Exhaust manifold. Torque the nuts to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm) or the bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
    • Powertrain assembly
    • Negative battery cable Fig. 1: Minimum head resurface dimension 7922vg04.gif

  12. Fill the cooling system.

Overheating, milky oil, oil in coolant...Please help!


Well, the good news is this could be something as simple as a blown head gasket. The bad news is most likely that is not the case. You have either cracked your block, cracked the head, worn a hole in your timing chain cover that is allowing the water and oil to mix or blown your head gasket or a combination of these problems. Your choices are to pull everything apart and magna Flux the Engine block and heads or replace the motor, assuming the issue isn't a hole worn in the timing chain cover, or replacing the motor, the easiest of the solutions although not the cheapest. A decent short block should run around $600 to $1000 with shipping. It's used but has been checked and should serve you for a while. The other option is rebuilding the motor. Should you choose to rebuild the motor I recommend you get the Haynes or Chilton's repair manual on your vehicle for doing the job.
