If the water ends up in your oil your right its a head gasket. Should be able to find a repair manual at the public library.

My Alero is overheating, and pushing the coolant out the surg tank, my brother said water pump, changed. then said thermostat, changed. then said radiator clogged, flushed. still doing the same thing?


Do fans come on , if not it is the $8 dollar temp sensor or the fan fuse or the fan motor.
If you have heat from the heater and if radiator gets hot then it is neither the raditor or the water pump nor the thermostat as neither heater or radiator would get hot
because no water would be moving in the system.

It sounds like you had a blown head gasket and it was leaking into the oil or into the exhaust and being burned. if you look at the oil on the dip stick it may look milky. if the head gasket starts leaking internally then it can / will cause overheating

How do u know if head gasket is blown after overheat and now does not turn over


Typically, and in my own experience, over heating results in a blown head gasket. The question is not so much did it blow or not ... rather the question should be was it serious or deadly for the engine? Here are a few things to look for: Loss of power, oil in the radiator, water in the oil, white steam coming out of the exhaust, low water in radiator, high oil level (checck the ddip stick) leaking around the heads and or new unusual noise, water on the ground, low compression, fouled spark plugs, engine seized. I suggest you discuss repair with your mechanic before you even consider a tow job anywhere. Your car, while important and valuable to you, is 20 years old. Repair will probably exceed the value of your vehicle, and even if repaired, you will still have a 20 year old vehicle. My free advice is consider replacement vehicle rather than repair of this one.

How would i know if my overheating problem in my 97 Geo Metro Prizm is a radiator, water pump, blown head gasket, cracked head or a thermostat problem. is there some way i can check for this?


Oil and coolant mixed usually means the engine is damaged.
Blown head gasket, or cracked block - head.
You may have coolant in the engine oil too.
I would not drive it.

KTM 450 blown head gasket?


Hey Anon, Run a compression check..screw the compression gauge into the head until the o-ring seats..( a coat of oil on the o-ring helps) hold the throttle wide open and kick it over about 6-8 times HARD.. you should get at least 120psi..if it is lower than 110psi you need to find out why...
if you don't have the tools/knowledge/experience .. .. take it to a qualified pro...

Water is mixed with oil.


Fix this ASAP, Coolant in oil will ruin bearings. Have a shop check it ASAP. I would check the intake manifold gaskets first.

Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,

But not to say the other guys were wrong...
