Your problem is you either have a cracked head or headgasket on one of the heads ,, or a bowed head if over heated engine,,or inlet manifold gasket were water goes from side to side or something like a core plug on head under camshafts etc ,,
But then the water getting mixing with oil will turn oil to white milky colour...

The intake manifold gasket is the first place to check. It is possible for the coolant to leak internally. Have the cooling system pressure tested and checked for exhaust fumes in the coolant with a block tester.

My 1999 C1500 chevy saburban doesnt turn on found water in motor oil.


Water in the oil is sign that head gasket has blown or head or block has cracked. Either way, very bad indeed. Engine will need major repairs or replacement.

Check oil level light on 1999HD Z71 chevy pickup How do you reset it ? It is full of Oil.


There is a sensor in the side of the oil pan that senses the oil level. if you do any offroading a piece of debris could have pulled the wire loose. there is no way to reset the warning.

My 1999 Chevy 1500 pickup has transmission fluid in the radiator. Can this be fixed?


It would cost as much to repair the leak that is internal on the tank then to buy a new radiator or buy a used radiator at a salvage yard. Make sure you flush the system after you change repair or change the radiator to get all the oil out of the system. The parts store has a flush for cleaning out the system.

I have a 1999 Chevy s10 zr2 pickup, when i start it it makes a ticking noise in the engine after it warms up it stops


This is a common complaint. What it is is the a lifter making noise because it has lost its prime (oil that is supposed to stay in the lifter to keep it lubricated). To make the noise stop try using some Lucas Oil Treatment or oil stabilizer. You can pick this up at your local Advance, Napa Auto, or Auto Zone parts dealer.

Hope my advice is helpful and you get your S10 in tip top shape.
