A warped head will cause a gasket to fail, the process of replacing the gasket includes checking the head for warped surfaces. At this point it is hard to say what caused the gasket to fail.

Car overheating and mixing water with oil


You have blown the head gasket. Also, you may have warped the head if it's aluminum which will happen due to ignoring the issue of overheating...which eventually caused the "blown head gasket". So, it sounds like you have 2 issues to resolve. 1) Why was it tending to overheat? Stuck thermostat, water pump issue or??? 2) Repairing the cylinder head or replacing it if warped badly, if your lucky it's just a blown head gasket. Allowing a overheating vehicle to be in service without solving that the overheating can lead to MANY other expensive problems.

Overheating and watery oil


Water in the oil means one of 3 things:

1) Cracked or warped cylinder head
2) Cracked engine block
3) Blown head gasket

Blown head gasket is the best you can hope for. And cracked or warped cylinder head is next most likely. A cracked engine block is least likely of the three. Have you noticed anything unusual, heard any noises? And has the car overheated really badly?

How can i tell if i have a blown head gasket and is there a difference in cracked\warped head or blown gasket when diagnosing?


Hard to tell if its a blown head gasket or warped cracked head. The symptoms will be the same. The way to check is to pull the spark plugs and look at them. If one is super clean then more then likely antifreeze is getting in that cylinder. You can buy heavy duty sealant to try to seal the leak up. You get this at a auto supply depot. Get the one that you have to drain antifreeze and replace with water. You run the engine with the spark plug removed from the cylinder that was leaking until no water comes out

Often (but not always), a blown head gasket will also cause deposit of water on a piece of cardboard held an inch from the tailpipe output while the engine is running (when this is happening, it is likely that the catalytic converter has been ruined and the muffler will corrode in short order as well).

Sometimes drops of water will be seen dropping from the end of the tailpipe. Another clue: turn on the heater; often when the head gasket is blown an odor of antifreeze and synthetic rubber will emanate from the heater vents.
Many of the symptoms of blown head gasket can be caused by some other problem in the cooling system, without the head gasket being damaged. Conversely, other problems with the cooling system can cause a blown head gasket and/or warped head.

When checking for a blown head gasket, one of the most common tell-tale signs is a milky-gray ring around your oil cap. When coolant enters the engine oil through a crack in the head or through a blown gasket, it evaporates and leaves a milky ring around the oil cap. Another easy way to tell is to check your oil dipstick. Change your oil and pull out the dipstick. Make sure that you take note of how far up the dipstick the oil is. Top off your cooling system and fill your cooling reservoir to the top. Screw radiator cap back on and start engine. Run engine for about 20-30 mins. or until it reaches normal operating temperature. Allow engine to cool (engine must cool completely to get accurate oil reading!!). Check oil dipstick again. If the oil has a watery appearance and has risen noticeably up the dipstick, the you probably have a blown head gasket or a warped head. Also look for a dripping, sweet-smelling liquid coming out of your tailpipe. Any of the above symptoms could be the result of a blown head gasket. The easiest way to tell is with a compression meter. This replaces the spark plug and lets you know what compression each cylinder is running at. If your compression is abnormally low, then you have a blown head gasket or a warped head. (note: consult repair manual for appropriate compression of each cylinder.)

Remove the radiator cap,and fill to very top with coolant,then turn the engine over,and see if it pushes out the radiator ,or looks like a water fountain when turning the engine over,if it does,then the head gasket is blown,and possible warped.If not,pull the valve cover to see if the cylinders that are low,have stuck valves,that are open.Check to see if the motor oil is milky in color.If so,the heads could be cracked.Or head gasket blown.
