Is the head warped or can you actually see the crack.If so it would be cheaper to replace the head.If you weld the head, then it will have to be milled to make sure you have a flat surface.Find a salvage yard with a engine with a bad block.Make sure valve are the same size

How do I fix water from getting in the oil

If you are getting water in your oil there are 2 issues going on...
1) You packing is bad...take the brass manifold off your pump and check your packings...look for rips or worn spots...
2) look for craks in the 3 pistons in your pump manifold. They may be ceramic...look for cracks...sometimes they are hairline cracks.
You may just need to replace the packings...but if the pistons are cracked then you will need to replace both pistons and packings. You can look up your model pump here and get the correct parts. Good luck... Pressure washer parts catalog quick links Pressure Washers High Pressure...

Water keeps getting into the oil

The problem will probably be corrosion holes behind the water pump impellor. The water passes into the sump from these holes.

I have a 1992 cadillac seville 4.9L i bought it knowing the head gasked was bad. was gonna use thermagasket try fix this problem. But have a pos bigger problem when I drained the oil it was full of water...

it could have a problem behind the water pump/ timing cover. bu *** could be head gaskets. DO NOT put anything to try to fix this, it will not work and cause more damage. but your engine is already damaged.

Blew oil out of the water resevoir

We just had the exact same issue with our 2004 F-350 with a 6.0. The oil cooler had failed. Its an expensive fix. But less costly than a blown head gasket.

Water came out when the oil cap was taken off on my bmw 323i

water actually came out of the oil fill cap? is there a white milky residue on the bottom side of the cap? did this happen when it suddenly got cold? if you pull out the dipstick, do you see "bubbles" on it indicating water is present in the oil pan?

i remember my 540i use to do this and there was a BMW service bulletin indicating such and it was not an issue. it only happened when it was really cold out (winter months), but then would go away in the summer. maybe that's why BMWs now have oil/water separators?

is the coolant level dropping in the overflow tank or in the radiator? if not dropping, then it may be the issue i mentioned above.

if you want piece of mind, take it somewhere for an oil change and have them put it into a separate container. if it was a head gasket that went south, then the oil & water should separate in the container and it will be obvious that jo jo jo is correct with the head gasket.

also give BMW service a call and ask if this is normal (some water vapor on the bottom side of the oil fill cap) during the winter months. hopefully its not an issue or it will be pricey to get the head gasket changed. good luck.

How do i fix water mixed with my oil

This sounds like a blown cylinder had gasket. Although on some engines you will find core plugs below the rocker coverin the head.

I had the same problem with my T5 130. My mechanic replaced the head gasket to no avail,then we checked the oil filter,that was ok.then we went on to a web forum and found out that the AXD engine suffers from water pump failure.We took it off and it was corroded,the seal had failed and was pumping water into the block.My advice,CHECK WATER PUMP FIRST! Good luck Marc,Somerset.
