I agree that the head gasket is the root cause of this dilemma.

Assume blown head gasket. That's nearly the only thing that will get water into the oil.

Water pouring out of oil drain plug

How did you manage to do that!?!?!?!?!?

Maybe someone does not like you and poured water into your crankcase. Since water is heavier than oil it will sink and be the first to come out. If oil has mixed a bit with the water you will get a nice lite brown sludge coming out. If your coolant has leaked into oil passages internally you will have that problem.

Definitely not a good situation.

How come my vehicle is pouring water from radiator into crankcase

You have three possibilities if there is oil in the water. A blown head gasket, cracked block, crack in cylinder head.

Oil suddenly blew out of motor.

Could be the PCV system, valve or whatever. If crankcase pressure builds up from defective pcv system, that could be the problem.

It sounds like your fuel pump may have gone out. They tend to make a louder than normal noise when they are not working.

Overheating. i put in a new thermastate, clutch fan and a new radaiator cap, and today i flushed out my radiator

Hi have a pressure test done on the cylinder head to rule out a head gasket failure, also check the water pump, and last make sure the coolant system has been bled properly,

Hope this helps
