Question about 1993 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

1993 camaro V6 3.4 lt water and oil mixing could it be water pump

I have oil and water mixing. I replaced my head gasket and upper and lower intake manifold gasket two years ago. Is there any other way for water and oil to mix? Could the water pump allow for oil and water to mix? I only put 20,000 miles on the car since I did all that work. Just trying to come up with some other way for water and oil to mix. Thanks for the help

Yes there is another way, someone can be messing with your head and pouring water in your oil cap. Do have water in your oil or oil in your water or both? A product called sea foam does a miraculous job at getting water out of oil. As far as keeping it from happening further, the cheap way of course is "bar's stop leak" but man can this stuff do a number on clogging your heater core, even if they say it doesn't, it can happen.

What all do I need to change or do to fix a blown head gasket?


This is a big job. First removing the upper intake and possible the airbox. then the fuel rail and injector connectors needs to be removed or disconnected then remove the lower intake. Possible having to remove the valve covers first.exhaust manifold(s) will have to be removed. Then you can remove the heads. There will be many electrical connectors that will have to be disconnected. Inspect the heads for cracks around the valves is where they usually crack. Inspect all valves for damage or uneven wear. ALWAYS follow torque specs and sequence when installing the heads. A manual will be verys helpful with this job. The alternator,P/S pump may also have to be removed or moved out of the way. Cleaning is very important. Generaly the parts you will need are.

Upper and lower intake gaskets
Head gasket
Head bolts
Valve cover gaskets
Injector O-rings
Exhaust manifold gaskets

Hopefully this kinda helps.

Replacing a head gasket in a 1993 buick century


Before head gasket replacement have you checked these
Intake Manifold Gaskets May Leak Coolant or Engine Oil
engine or leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.
Leaking Water Pump May Cause Coolant Loss and Overheating
A coolant leak may develop from the . The may overheat as a result of the coolant loss. A leaking water pump should be replaced.
Headgasket replacement
step 1. undo negative battery cable or completely remove battery and tray.
step 2. remove air cleaner and associated piping if it is in the way to allow access to head, drain cooling system and remove upper radiator hose.
step 3. remove top portion of exhaust manifold.
step 4. remove intake manifold and fuel injection rail as necessary
step 5. remove spark wires and valve cover.
step 6. remove drive belts and top timing cover before removing timing belt find all alignment marks and paint to improve your visibility and aid in reassembly if no marks are present remove spark plug # 1 and rotate until piston is at tdc and check timing mark on crankshaft that it is on 0 then paint the belt and cams anything that has teeth that the timing belt rides on make a mark to aid in reassembly even if you are replacing t-belt at least you can compare to new belt and transfer marks, release tension on t-belt tensioner and remove t-belt.
step 7. remove head bolts start loosening at inside and work outwards reemove head bolts and pay attention to sizing and placement.
carefully check for anything that is still attached to head and if free tap head with rubber or dead blow hammer to free from block and lift straight up so as not to ruin or bend any of the alignment pegs.
step 8. remove head gasket material with non-scratching tools or scrapers or buff pads made for that job. making note of where it was blown.
step 9. decide if you should send head to machine shop to have mating surface made flat again and also to have valves and related parts inspected or replaced. usually about $300-$400
step 10. inspect block remove all gasket material look for pitting or scarring also use straight edge to determine if it is straight or if it needs to be resurfaced by a machine shop.
step 11. install new headgasket and check fit. If all is good reassemble in reverse order of removal and I always like to replace crank seal ,cam seal, water pump, t-belt and tensioner also thermostat, drivebelts, spark plugs, cap, rotor, wires, pcv valve, intake manifold ,exhaust manifold gaskets.
this is just a broad overview hope it helps you will have to get haynes manual or similar for head torque values and what not

Head gasket or freeze plugs I'm at a lost


It's your freeze plug, If it was a head gasket you won't see it pouring instead coolant will going inside the engine mix with oil check the oil dipstick if it is pure oil not a head gasket problem, if it is mix with oil its overfull and color is white and car would smoke white running.

What does it mean if there is oil in my coolant reservoir


oil too low!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! have some change your oil & filter immediately !!! drain radiator & coolant reservoir , refill w/ fresh 50/50 coolant , white smoke is not exactly a good thing ! it could mean coolant is mixing w/ oil , because of a possible leak from a bad gasket either from intake manifold or head gasket !!! water pump would not cause this ! I would bet on a gasket leak given the age of the car . 2000 ! 13 years old, how was it maintained, intake gaskets are cheaply made, head gaskets are made well ! so, my bet, goes to the intake manifold gasket !!!!!!good luck kristle !

1993 twincam max with oil pumping into radiator. runs perfectly, seems to be a one way leak, no water in oil or trans


check the intake or head gasket, for they may be bad. Engine oil leaks can occur at the intake manifold gasket, at a blown head gasket, or within a cracked head or block. good-day !

My 95 camaro oil an water is mixing


You either have a blown cylinder head gasket or leaking intake manifold gasket. If there are hydrocarbons in the cooling system (test needed) it is the head gasket.
Don't drive it like that or you can damage the bearings.

Oil mixing with coolant.Car is overheating, coolant is tan.Had radiator tested.It's not trans fluid.Oil level fine and no coolant in oil.Oil on top of heads look fine.Buick park ave 150,000 miles 1998...


If this is a 3800, Upper Intake Plenum or Lower intake gaskets are an inevitability. Head gaskets on these engines rarely go out! Seriously, don't get duped. I am doing the job on my grand prix right now. Google it for further explanation.

Saturn sc1, oil leaking into antifreeze


We just went through the same thing on our 1997 SC1, replaced the head gasket and the oil in the coolant issue persisted.

Pulled a cylinder head out of a 1995 wagon and put it in, the problem has cleared up after a LOT of flushing with powered automatic dishwasher machine detergent and water. We also replaced the upper and lower radiator hoses, thermostat and water pump once the flushings were complete.
