coolant in the oil culprit found
Well, the verdict is in. A couple days ago my radiator emptied into the block in a matter of minutes. Didnt run long enough to overhead or even show a change in oil pressure. However, it did make an enourmos amount of chocolate milk. While looking for the leak and preparing to remove the heads I founf the oil pan gasket leaking pertty bad so i decided to just pull the block and take care of it all in one shot. I found the leak. A freeze plug in the top front of the right side head was blown out. I havnt removed the head yet but expect to see a blown gasket there. ( I hope anyway ). My question is, aside from totally breaking down the block and having it vatted, how can i clean all that chocolate milk out of there. Its everywhere. Its even oozing out of the turbo, it in the intercooler. Everywhere. Also, Could a blown head gasket between the cylinder and a coolant passage cause enough compression in the entire cooling system to actually blow out a freeze plug. I would have thought something much weaker would have let go. I plan to regasket much of the engine, paint it, new compressor wheel, larger down pipe and larger up pipes, and im seriously considering a new HPOP. Anything else you guys recommend without having to spend 5 or 6K.
