Have you had the head gasket replaced? you may have a cracked or coroaded head that may need to be repaired first,if you have had it repaired blow out with compressed air and may be spray some carby cleaner down the spark plug holes hope this helps

SOURCE: water shoots from radiator when

I am assuming that when your car is cold and the radiator cap is removed that turning the engine over causes fluid to spurt from the opening. If that is the case, pressure generated by the engine being cranked over is pushing the fluid at a high enough velocity to immediately blow out of the radiator. The only pressure that can be generated that quickly into the cooling system will be from a blockage that prevents the coolant from taking it's normal course through the engine. It takes the path of least resistance and pops out of the radiator. Or the head gasket is leaking combustive gases into system. There is a test procedure that your mechanic can use to determine if those gases are present in the fluid. It is a Bluepoint test kit sold by Snap-On.

Water in the oil


Radiator coolant in the engine oil is normally an indication of a failed cylinder head gasket or a crack in the cylinder head or both.

Running the engine in an overheated condition will cause head gasket failure and often a crack in the cylinder head.

The problem you have is coolant is escaping into the engine's lubrication passages via the failed head gasket or head crack and contaminating the engine oil. If not fixed you will cause further damage to the engine as oil contaminated with radiator coolant cannot adequately lubricate the engine.

Running a leak down test on each cylinder will confirm the leak. In this case you are going to need to have the cylinder head removed and thoroughly checked for cracks and any warpage as well as a new cylinder head gasket fitted. The condition the engine block surface will also need to be checked.

I have no compression in cylinder 1 it has only 15 pd of pressure but it doesn't smoke


Do a cylinder leak down test

Still nothing ,the valves are worn,head comes off

Compression does not tell you if a valve seals properly,
only how much pressure your building at cranking speed

I think the rings in my engine are worn


COULD BE THE PISTON RINGS, COULD BE THE PISTON WALLS, FIRST CHECK YOUR COOLANT TANK & SEE IF IT HAS ANY OIL INSIDE - IF THIS IS THE CASE THEN YOU HAVE BLOWN THE HEAD GASKET & WILL NEED TO GET THE JOB DONE BY A COMPETENT MECHANIC, DEPENDING ON WHETHER OR NOT THE HEAD IS WARPED & BY HOW MUCH WILL MEAN THAT THE HEAD WILL NEED SKIMMIMG, IF THIS IS NOT THE CASE THEN I RECOMMEND A PRODUCT CALLED AMETECH RESTORE THIS BUILDS UP THE SCRATCHES & GROOVES IN THE CYLINDER WALL, INCREASES COMPRESSION, INCREASES BHP & INCREASES MPG TO BOOT, BUT TAKES A 3-500MILE RUN IN PERIOD UNTIL RESULTS CAN BE SEEN

While driving on the highway yesterday, my son's 2003 dodge durango over heated, the temperature gauge on the dashboard was not reading hot, we noticed a ticking sound from the engine, so I ask my son...


is the engine turning over? if not, then you may have expansion of the pistons which have lock them selfs in the bore of the cylinders and because you found the oil diluted with water you may have failed bearings, you may also have had water leak into the cylinder because of a blown head gasket creating a hydraulic lock. in this case remove spark plugs and try cranking engine if any water was traped it will come true the plug holes. Now if the engine is turning over when you try to crank the you may have blown head gasket and posibly a warp or cracked cylinder head. Seeing that you all had a faulty temp gauge or sending unit, that engine may have to be remove and torn down to find the extent of damage done. remove head first check for cracks,flatness and preasure test it.

Oil in sparkplugs


oil in spark plugs indicates that the cylinder head gasket is leaking and allowing oil to seep into the cylinders. if engine is running you will also have blue black smoke from the exhaust.
alteratively the piston rings are so worn that too much oil is passing them and spraying up on the spark plugs but that is not normal on all cylenders at the same time maybe only the one. also there would be a very low compression when checked with a compression guage.

second check is to remove the oil filler cap and see if it has a white emulsion on it this also indicates that the coolent water antifreeze is mixing with the oil at the cylinder and causing this.

the fix is to have the cylinder head removed and the gasket replaced, to ensure the head is not warped and skimming on a lathe is also a good idea.

if this is the original engine then at 16 years old it maybe time to replace for a recoditioned engine or a new one if the rest of the car is in good order.

I hope this was helpful.

Nissan navara 2006 blown hole no1 piston 16000kms


I'm sorry to hear that!
When you get it fixed get your injectors serviced as holes in pistons are usually caused by pre-ignition ( pinking ) or running too lean.
If the injectors were left wet ( can happen if a blown head gasket was the cause of the first rebuild ie water in the bore ) , or dirty , they may not be delivering enough fuel causing the top of the piston to get too hot and melting a hole in it.
Option 2 , the timing was set wrong, ( too far advanced ) causing pre-ignition and ending in the same way.
Good luck with the rebuild.

Have a daewoo 2001 legacy se overfilled the oil and car started sputtering and stalled out pulled the plugs and had oil on them and car was blowing white smoke took valve cover off and cleaned most of oil...


OK here is what happened. With the oil overfull, the connecting rod caps, which usually don't dip into the oil, started whipping the oil, creating whipped lubricant that the oil pump couldn't draw in. This more than likely resulted in the loss of lubrication to the camshaft bearings, rod and main bearings, piston rings and walls and the camshaft and rockers and valve system.

Depending on how long the engine ran, the bearings may have spun, keeping any oil from being sent to some bearings, the cylinder walls and piston rings may have worn too much to provide proper compression.

The oil pump probably suffered also.

If you ran it a long time that way with the oil light on, find yourself a remanufactured engine or a used engine & save the headache and expense of rebuilding this one.

If it was for just a few minutes, pull the plugs, put a table spoon of oil into each cylinder to lubricate & seal the piston ring to the cylinder wall for compression, change to a higher gade of oil, crank the engine to try and build oil pressure, reinstall plugs, try and start.

good luck.

Suzuki GV burns oil


valve seals will not cause this kind of oil consumption, a scocred cylinder wall or broken piston ring will, not sure on the head gasket, does it have a combustion gases present in the radiator surge tank or bubbles while running? if not the head gasket is probaly ok.
