Is the motor blown if there is water in the spark plugs and it smells burnt

The motor isn't blown but you have a defective or blown head gasket. A garage can test with a coolant pressure tester. You will often see your water level going down. If you remove the oil filler, look for a creamy deposit like mayonnaise on the cap. Pull the dipstick and see if you see droplet of water, or the oil is milky.

Have a problem with my isuzu bakkie kb 260 oil and water mix after driving for 20 km

Run a coolant pressure test to look for pressure leaks. I suspect that it will be behind the water pump impeller that corrodes from water turbulence and allows water to leak through pin holes into the sump. It could also be a head gasket of head bolts leaking past the head studs/threads so a compression test may also help. By removing the rocker cover and with the coolant system under pressure you may see droplets of water at a head stud.

How is there No coolant in car where is it going

Check your oil, you could have a blown gasket and it is going into the crankcase. If the stick is over the full mark, of if you let it drip onto a piece of plastic like a credit card or something and you see some bubbles or what looks like water droplet being displaced by the oil, you have a problem. Or if it looks foamy on the dipstick, as oil and water do not mix, they will separate or foam if the mixture has been churning in the motor for a while. If the car seem to run fairly decent, it could be a water pump gasket or intake manifold gasket if you do indeed find water in the oil.

Engine turns over but won't start

Pull and inspect the spark plugs (check for contaminates). Pull and inspect the oil dipstick (look for water droplets or sludge). It sounds like you have a blown head gasket, from what you have said. A coolant pressure test may help confirm. If you have more details or questions, please write back. Good luck.

My heater is blowing cold air and the temp gauge is rising; do I need a new heater or is it something else? I regulary put in fuel injector cleaner every 3000 miles. When I searched for Heater Cores it...

it sounds like you are running out of coolant. refill and check for leaks. The coolant reservoir may have a leak. Your thermostat may need replacement.

Oil droplets in engine coolant. Mileage about 100000 on 2002 V6 Buick Century.

Replace the head gasket. Don't wait any longer if you can or the engine may overheat and warp the head.

My mini 2005 is losing coolant a small amount but can not see any wet pipes or dripes etc, is there a common problem,so i can start with that.

Check your oil and see if it has water in it. It may look brown and murky or have droplets of water on the dipstick. If this is the case you may have a blown head gasket. If not, it has to be a leak. The water has to be going somewhere.

Sounds like your trans cooler leaked. Bad news for the transmission. I don't think changing the oil will help at this point.

Service engine light came - Service engine soon.

yes you must be careful here, it is mostlikely your oil, although it could possibly be coolant too, with summertime approching you do not want to drive around without your fluids topped off. check each one of the fluids I mentioned and add if needed

1995 Ford Thunderbird Temp Gauge goes up when idling

Try to bleed the system. Also keep an eye on the coolant level. If it drops and you see no leaks the you could have a blown head gasket. Also replace the thermostat and hoses.
