Question about Cars & Trucks
The oil is all in radiator. There is very little left in the motor. However there is no water in the engine block.
Not good, there are few reasons why this has happened but any one of them will lead to overhauling the engine. I don't know what kind of vehicle you have but it mite be cheaper to get a decent engine from local auto wreckers, some of them will actually go and install it, that is if you do not have a mechanic of you own.
Sorry my friend, this sucks.

SOURCE: overheating engine
Was the thermostat put in backwards? I know this is a silly question, but I've seen it happen. The water pump will fight it if it is. Another thing are the coolant passages, are they flushed out? Also, if that fan clutch is the original one, I would go ahead and replace that as insurance against the water pump breaking.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but unless I am misunderstanding what product you used, I think that radiator engine block sealer was supposed to go in the radiator and not in the oil. Go back and read the instructions on the label again. If this is the case, there is no easy solution to the problem. You are looking at dismantling the engine and soaking everything in a parts washer, examining all of the parts for damage, then reassembling it. While you are in the motor, go ahead and replace all of the main, rod, and crank bearings, the oil pump, all of the gaskets, have the head worked at the shop, and replace the head bolts. Sorry dude, but don't feel too bad. I've had more than fair share of dumb mistakes, which is how I have learned what I know so far.

No, you can flush system with oil after doing repairs. Just ad oil as you would normally do on service then run car for 30 mins to hr then dump oil and change filter. Should be fine. Yes hope that it is a intake gasket.

since it was such a small amount of anti freeze and water,anti freeze has a petrolem base and water would have sunk to the bottom of oil pan, change oil and filter and you should be ok
