The engine oil is in the radiator after driving

The cooling system is a "closed" system, if there is oil there, you have a leak between the two systems.

Generally, when a head gasket blows, the oil can be pushed into the antifreeze as it runs at higher pressures than the radiator pressures.

It is unusual that you don't have coolant in the oil pan. It would be hard to see, you may want to drain the pan after the engine cools just to see if there is any coolant there.

This can also happen when you have a cracked head.

There are other instances where this can happen, such as a cracked turbo that also has oil & antifreeze running through it, and a few other parts that use both oil & water lines run through them.

Engine trouble

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

Water in engine? please help!

Pls make the following checks with the engine off and cold,
1)Take the radiator cap off.
2) Make sure your hands are clean and dry.
3)Put your index finger into the radiator cap hole for 1 second.
4)Remove your finger and check it for oil.
5)If you get oil on your finger your cylinder head gasket has blown .
6) You must then drain the engine of its oil and water mixture and replace the cylinder head gasket,dont drive the vehicle for it's just gonna make the repairs more expensive for you.

My car either has a cracked block, needs head gasket or? When I put water in the radiator, it comes out the oil pan without starting the engine.

I think a cracked block would be very unlikely. More than likely to be a head gasket problem. A decent mechanic shouldn't have any trouble pressure testing each cylinder to diagnose the fault. I'm assuming it's a V8? there are other possible causes also. Cracked head, faulty inlet manifold (v8, if it has water jackets in the manifold). I would have it checked out before assuming it needs a motor.

this sounds like your head gasket has blown this would be the reason why you have cream colored water, this is oil in the water and loosing water is also a sign of head gasket , a creamy residue on the oil filler cap is also a sign, overheating is defiantly a sign if you have the other 2 all three points to head gasket, you will possibly need the head skimmed now as well...hope this helps

Engine light wenton, car heated up, car would not

If the engine overheated while driving, damage to the cylinder head gasket or engine block/cylinder head may have been done, which would prevent the vehicle from starting.

A standard engine compression check will tell the tale.

Overheating, water in oil

You have a bad head gasket. You will not know how bad the damage is until the engine is disassembled. Chances are, a head has warped though, and will need to be machined.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
