Don't drive it...likely either a head gasket or intake gasket. Water in the pan will destroy your crank and rod bearings. Tow it to a shop or do some testing and find out what has failed

Most likely cause is the intake gasket leaking. The 3.1(4) and 3.8s are bad about it. Possibly a head/head gasket, but not as likely.

What can cause a heavily mixing oil and water in the engine but no oil found in the radiator


There is oil already in the engine oil pan and lubrication system and apart from some condensation there should be no water. The only place water can come from in any quantity is from the cooling system and although cracks and leaky water heated inlet manifolds and gaskets can be the cause the most common source of coolant ingress is the cylinder head gasket.

A failing head gasket doesn't very often mean there will be oil in the coolant.

Engine trouble


Sounds pretty serious. If the truck is in decent condition you might want to check into a good used engine.

Water was found leaking from my oil pan and car is overheating. I have a 95 Mazda MX3


Is it leaking FROM the oil pan, or dripping OFF the oil pan?

If its dripping OFF the oil pan, that leads me to beleive you have a coolant leak somewhere. Check the coolant level. Check for leaks.

Check your oil, if the oil is milky/coffee colored. Or if your coolant looks kinda nasty, you may be looking at a headgasket.

I have a 1989 dodge ramcharger 5.2 318 TBI it was starting up and then it would stall as we were driving then sometimes it will start and sometimes it wont i replaced ignition switch, starter relay,...


It sounds like you have an enemy that sabotaged your vehicle. The sand in the oil pan concerns me the most as major damage can be done in a short time with the engine running. The water in the gas tank is less of a worry because you can drain the tank and then add a couple bottles of Heet fuel conditioner which will cause any remaining water to mix with the fuel and burn away.

I had my intake manifold replace and my car started up then less tham 30 seconds my whole car shutoff. i found water in my oil pan drained it and replace all fluies and it still won't start up


water in oil pan? try taking out the spark plugs and turning car over. Is there coolant/water coming out? If so you need Head gaskets or intake gaskets weren't done properly. If this problem wasn't there before gaskets were done I'ld strongly suggest looking at intake gaskets again.

Where is the location of the oil release nut ?


The nut on most vehicles is usually found attached to the oil pan. Once you find the oil pan, the nut should be at the bottom rear or side of the pan. Good Luck!!
