the car is overheating and water in oil and right behind to the sid eof the oil stick is leakin any water or antifreeze i put in it... what wrong???? please helpundefinedundefinedundefined
it might be a hole in the radiator.
what series engine 3100 or 3800
GM had problems with intake gaskets leaking, just did a job today on a Cutlass Supreme w/3100 series engine. the same problem as yours milkshake syndrome
i was told it was a cracked head gasket or something i just bought it 2 days ago and today it overheated and my engine is full of water...
you can test for this by removing the spark plugs and cranking your engine(remove your fuel pump relay before trying this and disable your ignition system also)if coolant sprays out of any of your spark plug holes then you either have a cracked head or a blown head gasket.
how do i go about doing all of this
removing the spark plugs from the rear can get quite difficult find someone who can help you and offer them a few bucks to do this test, you can save yourself a lot of money if you see the results yourself, instead of having someone lie to you and ripping you off
whats messed up on it...Thanks
if coolant doesn't come out the spark plug holes don't let them tell you it's a head gasket(usually a $600 job at a shop) chances are it's your intake gaskets, GM even had a recall on them
the hole is usually in the radiator hose and under pressure it grows all you have to do is replace it.[/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]
check the radiator hose they have quite weak hoses installled in the stock engines. :thumbs:
