The head has a cracked water jacket. The best thing to do is try finding a remaned head from the local salvage yard and take it to your local machine shop to make sure everything measures up and checks out

Engine oil mixing into coolant

The only place, oil and water share a gasket is the cylinder head gasket, oil and water galleries run through the engine block and head via the head gasket. The cylinder pressure will be OK, it's the oil pressure that's putting the oil in the coolant, the gasket has gone between the water and oil galleries or there is an internal crack (unlikely). A coolant pressure test should show it up.

Hi I need help with my 2004 Freelander TD4: suddenly blue/white smoke coming out the back of the car ( the car did not over heated the heat gauge was at normal position) notes that there was oil leaking...

cracked block. once it heats up the crack gets bigger and the oil gets thinner which makes more oil burn. run car without the oil cap on and see if lots of air/ oil comes out if so thats blow by and you need a new engine.

I got oil in radiator . We have put recone head and new head gasket new head bolt new radiator still getting oil in cooling system

Hi Sidu, Have you torqued the head correctly? Did you flush out the cooling system by back flushing. The radiator is one part of the system and if the oil had gotten into the water jackets it may still be there? Get yourself some engine flushing agent and put that into the radiator, follow the instructions. Afterwards disconnect the rad hoses and get a hose pipe put it into the engine side of the connection and back flush untill the water coming out is clean. If the vehicle is a diesel engine it may be fitted with an oil cooler, (usually on the side of the block behind an alloy cover. It could be that there is a leakage in the seals and that would cause a leakage! Regards Johngee10

Water getting into oil

If its just condensation in the oil cap or dipstick, to some degree its normal. However if you have water in the oil and its very creamy in texture, its probably a head gasket leak, or cracked head. Its important to get it repaired soon, or total engine bearing failure will result.

1991 Daihatsu charade, 3 cylinder, manual, engine oil in radiator coolant. Removed head gasket, doesn't appear to be cracked. What other possible causes should I look for? No water at all in engine oil...

Hi ,engine oil in the coolant can only mean 1 of 2 things either head gasket or cracked block,It often takes experienced eye to see where the gasket problem is, it wont be :cracked:in that sense of the word,but I`m sure that will be the trouble... for oil to be in the water the leak will be between an oil gallery hol;e and a water jacket hole and the onlyevidence may be a darker colour between the 2 holes it wont be abig section ,or the oil pressure would have pushed alot of oil through into the water i think it is on an oil return gallery, unless there was a lot of oil.if you know an experienced older mechanic ask him to have a look at the gasket for you.I doubt it will be a cracked block ,unless you have had it realy hot and added cold water to the engine while it was hot. If not I sugest you clean every thing nicely and put anew head gasket on put it back together..If you need any help in that area, dont hesitate to get back to me and i`ll help where Ican, thanks

Oil keeps getting in to the water

if thats the case you should have water in the oil also, that means you have a blown head gasket

I have a 05 grand prix with a 3800-v-6. have oil in raditor. 96000 miles. checking fluid in radiator noticed oil. before that i had a radiator flush. new radiator fluid too. the reservoir had some oil too.

Your head gasket is leaking, or you have a cracked cylinder wall.

chances are its the head gasket moreso than a cracked head.

grand prix are notorious for leaking head gaskets. have the block mic'd when you get it apart to make sure its not warped - if you put a new gasket in the same thing will happen.

Oil getting into radiator/cooling system

the only way for engine oil to get into the cooling system at such a high degree is if you have a cracked block. even a blown head gasket doesn't allow that much oil into the coolant system. if the block was cracked it would be the water jackets around the cylinder walls. even a cracked head would not allow for this to occure. now if you don't have engine oil in the coolant but transmission oil instead via the trans oil cooler this would mean that the radiator has a crack in the tanks along the side where the coils of the oil cooler runs through it,(this only applys to vehicles that have an integral trans oil cooler). another thing that could occure is that the heads are cracked and the coolant is mixing with the oil in the upper oil galleys in the heads and then getting pumped through the intake into the bypass. if this were to occure your vehicle probably would not start at all and even if it did I seriously doubt it would stay running. You stated that you just had the head gasket replaced. well if the heads them selves were warped or the block deck was warped and they were not planed then a new headgasket would not solve the problem to begin with. My suggestion is to take it back to the shop you had do it and have them do it again because i believe someone screwed up because you did not have this problem before so the mechanic did not do something right.

Car idling - carburetor

If you have oil in the water it smacks of a problems with the gasket or a crack in the head. Did you tension the head with a torque wrench? Did you retension after the first drive, with engine cool? What do the spark plugs look like?

Did you adjust the ignition timing after replacing the points?
