Water poured out and water in my oil

Water in the oil can only mean a few things: a blown head gasket, intake manifold gasket (on some engines), a cracked/broken cylinder head, or a cracked/broken cylinder wall in the engine block.

In any of these cases, it is going to require major engine repair to fix it. There may be moderate to severe damage to the engine bearings (cam and crank bearings) due to the water in the oil. I would recommend TOWING it to a professional repair shop to get an evaluation of the damage. You may be able to fix it with a head gasket replacement and an oil change, or you may have to replace the entire engine. DO NOT OPERATE THE ENGINE OR TRY TO DRIVE THE VEHICLE. This will only GAURANTEE that you will need to replace the entire engine!

Where is the head gasket located at on a 1994 grand marquis

The head gasket (in your case gaskets) is located on the top of the engine block under the engine cylinder head which is under the Camshaft cover which is the very top of the engine. This car is a V8 engine so it has 2 heads and 2 head gaskets, one on each side of the engine. It is a very expensive job to replace head gaskets.

What are your changes of having of taking the blown head gasket to machine shop and repaired and putting back on motor

Cylinder head gaskets (the thin copper layer between the head and block) are not normally repairable, it is better to fit a new one.

If you mean getting the cylinder head itself repaired at the machine shop that is certainly possible but depends on the extent of the damage and wether it is iron or aluminium (particularly if it needs welding).

I have a 1994 grand prix, with oil in the coolant. i flushed the the rad and engine, and now a year later, oil is back in the system. what else would cause this problems?

You more than likely have a disintegrating head gasket. It could also be leaking into the exhaust. To repair this problem, you'll needto do an upper cylinder rebuild using an upper cylinder head gasket set. Have the head checked out & planed if necessary. Good luck!

Head gaskets

There is really no difference between a blown or cracked head gasket. In either case the gasket would have to be replaced. Generally the term "cracked" is used when referring specifically to the cylinder head/s its/them selves. If the cylinder head is cracked it is a much more expensive repair.

Is just taking off the head and replacing the gasket all there is to replacing the head gasket?

Yes, however both mating surfaces need to be cleaned prior to reassembly. The cylinder head bolts will also need to be torqued to the manufacturers specifications.

I have a 1999 chevy cavalier i have antifreeze leaking in one of my spark plugs?

Is it leaking in the cylinder and causing a misfire ??

If so the only reason would be a head gasket issue. Would need to be taken apart and inspected to make sure its only the gasket.

If its leaking on the top then you will need valve cover gasket and seals. These are know for intake gaskets leaking also which would also cause the leak to show on on top of the spark plug.

Best bet is to have a shop look at it if you plan on doing the work yourself and your still not sure what is wrong.
