Did you see any oil in the coolant when you drained it?
Oil in the coolant before the ET failed?
Oil in the coolant is the best indicator of a failed head gasket.
Yes a failed gasket would allow oil into the radiator.
What does the oil look like on the dipstick?
like oil...........but the level is higher than usual
How could a water pump allow oil into the coolant?
How does water get into the engine from a leaking gasket ?
If I replace the gasket, do I just do the gasket on top, or do I need a gasket kit?
Other than the gasket and new sealant, what do I need to do the job ?
There is also a faint burning smell.
