Question about 1984 Chevrolet Sportvan G30
We were driving down the road and lost all power, pulled over and it was smoking like a bear. All engine coolant is gone as well as oil, looks like it mixed somewhere like a milky color now, was even shooting out of the dip stick. mixed and was even coming from tail pipe. is the engine shot? It still turns over (slowly)
No power at all in rest of van!
I pray its not blown
Sorry to say that the head gasket was blown. Coolant already mixed with oil to generate that milky thing. There is no power since there is not compression due to the leak going through the head gasket.
