It is quite likely you have a blown head gasket between water and oil passages. An engine compression test may not show this, but a radiator pressure test should do so.

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.

My Alero is overheating, and pushing the coolant out the surg tank, my brother said water pump, changed. then said thermostat, changed. then said radiator clogged, flushed. still doing the same thing?


Do fans come on , if not it is the $8 dollar temp sensor or the fan fuse or the fan motor.
If you have heat from the heater and if radiator gets hot then it is neither the raditor or the water pump nor the thermostat as neither heater or radiator would get hot
because no water would be moving in the system.

I have water in my carborater now its not running well


First drain the fuel tank , fuel lines and drain the oil while its draining , put a fan on the wiring and dry it out. Take the plugs out of the engine and turn the motor over this will force any water that's left in the cylinder out .Water that's got in to anyother parts of the engine will come out with oil Add oil to the engine and turn it over again ,without the plugs in .Let it sit for 5 minutes .then check the oil to see if there's water in it ( If there is it will look like a white milky substance ) if there is u need to drain it and start all over again u will have to keep doin this untill there is no white in the oil . Now once u have done this re-install spark plug,add the gas , then try to re start . If it starts. Leave it to run for a good few mins BUT don't rev it .
After it runs for a few mins turn it off re-drain the oil and change the filter .run again for few mins, turn off check the oil again for. A milky colour if there's none yippy uv done it if it dosent start u need professional help good luck

2001 blazer overheated now knocks and runs bad


Hi Wendy, hope I am wrong but it sounds like a cracked head or blown head gasket.
If the engine hasn't been started in a couple hours pull the engine oil dipstick and look at the oil level. If the oil level is over the full mark you likely have water in the bottom of the oil pan. Milky/semi-white oil on the dipstick would indicate the same. If the oil looks good and at or below the full level look in the water overflow for the radiator. Any sign of oil or milky looking foam is an indication of oil in the water from cracked head/block or blown head gasket. If both the water and oil look good start the engine, let it warm up and look to see if you have water coming out of the exhaust pipe. It is normal to see some water come out of the exhaust after starting a cold engine due to condensation in the muffler and catalytic converter but a healthy engine should have only a slight amount of water vapor coming out of the exhaust. Anything more would indicate a cracked head/block or blown head gasket.

I have a 2004 dodge intrepid 2.7 today the oil light came on when I open the oil cap I seen milky color so I decided to change oil and it was thin and milky and also drained about 2 gallons from oil drain...


have a coolant system pressure test done as there may be corrosion behind the water pump impellor that is letting water out into the sump. Check all aluminium fittings that connect to the oil system for corrosion

My 97 honda accord is blowing white smoke and running rough then i went to start it now it wont start


Sounds like either a blown motor (rings need replaced) or a bad head gasket or cracked head.
If the rings are bad your car would have felt like it was losing power because the engine will no longer have the same high compression that it's required to turn the wheels. You may have heard your engine knocking or seen a light blue colored smoke coming from your exhaust as a result of your engine burning up oil in the combustion chamber from the rings leaking.
If your head gasket is leaking or your head is cracked you'd likely find milky looking oil when you drain your oil from water/antifreeze being mixed in and noticed a white smoke coming from your exhaust that is actually water vapor coming through the exhaust.
If your car was running rough when you last shut it off try pulling all of your spark plugs and either cleaning them or replacing them all. A bad head gasket or bad rings can both foul spark plugs. A car will run rough with 1 or 2 fouled plugs, but once enough foul it will no longer run at all just sit and crank over. If changing the plugs get's it started for ya, check your tailpipe first for water, if nothing, change your oil. If no signs of water/antifreeze or milky colored oil then it's probably rings.

Milky oil will not start


milky oil is bad, it probably means a blown head gasket or a cracked block-because it won't start, I'd lean toward the cracked block, but I don't know the car's history-what led up to this? Was it badly overheated recently? No matter what, if you even think it might start again, drain what is in the crankcast, antifreeze kills bearings-not like water is better, but if you drain the anitfreeze too, and fill it with water, and do a pressure test on the radiator, you can find out how bad it really is-good luck.

Engine Overheating and too much oil to be drained out.


if the oil was milky in appearance then you can suspect a blown head gasket. Coolant is mixing with the oil causing the oil level to rise. Has the coolant level gone down? Check your spark plugs. The cylinder with the leaking head gasket will have a cleaner spark plug. If the leak is bad enough you can see water squirting out of the spark plug hole when you crank the engine with the starter. You will also see steam coming out of the exhaust pipe when the engine is running.
