If there is oil in the radiator - DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR. You are risking serious engine damage. After you change the head gasket, you must change the oil and the antifreeze. You definitely have at least a blown head gasket. On the bright side you know for sure which head to take off.

I have a 1986 Jeep Comanche manual 4x4 and it will not start. It feels like there isnt enought compression in the engine. also i drained the oil from it yesterday and the first 3 seconds or so was...


If the Jeep sits for long periods, you could have condensation in the engine. But if you drive it at least once or twice a week, I would expect to find a blown head gasket. The radiator should also be low on coolant.
It it is a leaking head gasket, you may be right on having low compression. The head could be cracked too.
Once the engine runs hot, the head gasket can stretch and stop sealing.

1996 acura 3.2tl replaced hose on back of engine replaced thermostat,replaced radiator,still running hot might run fine for week then run hot brown gunk in radiator.need help.thanks


Brown gunk is either oil from a blown head gasket or 'stop-leak'. The head gasket is expensive to fix.

If you have over 150,000 miles probably cheaper to replace the car if the head gasket is bad.

White smoke from tailpipe after engine is hot only occurs when stopped for short time this is a 3.o litre engine in a 1994 plymouth voyager


Blown head gasket, you can add some aluma seal to your radiator some times this helps, never open radiator cap when engine is hot.

Most head gaskets don't get in the oil, just leak into the combustion chamber, your friend is probably right, have another shop confirm his diagnosis

Possible cracked block or head


A cracked block often results in oil in the antifreeze. A cracked head or blown gasket is often heard while accelerating plus it my chug or miss. Take it to another garage and get the system pressure tested. I am not sure if thats what you meant by "a carbonation test". Check for milky looking oil on the dipstick first. If its normal then have the garage inspect the head for leaks using an ultraviolet light around the heads. It may a clogged rad or a faulty water pump too, even a faulty rad cap. Let me know any more info when this is checked. I hate to see someone ripped off.
