My 1997 mx6 2.5l g2 has a blown head gasket (milky oil and loss of water.) I need to find whats causing the overheating. do you have any ideas as to whats causing this. thanks

you may have answered your own question .a blown head gasket will cause water to get in the oil therefore loss of water will cause it to overheat.driving under these conditions will cause more engine problems.

Wite milky resedue in the oil

Moisture/water in oil, all oils have a detergent additive to keep engines clean, if moisture gets in it foams up, sadly the main cause is cylinder head gasket, cooling system needs pressure testing or a hydro-carbon sniff test, Any other symptoms, water loss? running hotter than usual.

Loss of Power / Over Heating

eeek, sounds like a possible head gasket failure. Check your coolant and oil. If the coolant is low top it off, and if the oil is milky, you are getting coolant in your oil which is usually a bad head gasket.

Loss of Power Over Heating

Check the oil to see if its milky. If it is you need to have your compression checked to see if your head gasket is blown.

How are the symtoms diffrent on internal and external head gasket leak? on 1986 honda civic

On an external head gasket leak you can see coolant leaking out between the cylinder head and engine block at the place where it is leaking .

An internal leak usually occurs into the cooling system . When this happens you might find that the cooling system will pressurize and you will experience coolant loss . The coolant loss may occur through the radiator over flow or on the other hand into the engine cylinders .

When this occurs through the engine cylinders you might find that the engine oil level will increase or the oil could turn a milky white color ( depending on the type of oil )

Also the exhaust smoke will be white in appearance as you rev the motor . ( caused by the coolant inhibitor being burnt in the engine cylinders )

No leakage anywhere near engine but still the engine oil is disappearing

Check coolant tank for oil deposits( milky in substance) means you have a bad head gasket.
Usually if you were burng oil you see it at the tail pipe.
If you still can't find anything then bring it to a shop and have them do a cylinder leakage test. If yor handy let me know I'll give you the procedure do this. Good luck
