Most of the time if you have water in your oil you ruined a head gasket. If they took off the cover it was probably the valve cover. If they could see the pistons they would have had to have pulled the heads off and they would know for sure and would have fixed the problem as it takes a while to get the heads off and you would be able to see a crack in the head they had just taken off. If you lost all the water out of the radiator and the engine overheated you might have cracked the head. Some good mechanics can tell by looking at the spark plugs but if you have water in the oil it is not a good sign, something is usually serious. Have it checked!
If you cracked your head, you don't need a new engine. You will either need to have the crack repaired or get a new or remanufactured head.
I was losing about a quart a month, then a quart a week, then a quart a day of coolant in a Chevy 350 (Suburban). It ran pretty rough, real hard to start. Sure enough, after removing the heads, the cylinders were full of water. Its a wonder it ran at all. The heads had little cracks in them. It seems the cracks get started, then slowly eat out the head gasket, then the leak gets bigger more cracks, more leaks and so on until the cylinders fill up with water.
Assuming you mean coolant (not water), you probably have a bad head gasket or a cracked head.
A bad head gasket , warped head , cracked block etc.

The engine probably has a bad head gasket or a cracked head.

Blown head gasket or cracked head.
Do you mean oil in the coolant? If so, you have a blown head gasket, cracked head, or both.

it should not be a water in oil tank it is mean engine cracked
Did you mean water comes out the plug hole after you have taken the spark plug out? If you did I would say you have a blown head gasket or cracked head. If it is really bad it will fill the cylinder up and you will not be able to crank the car over, you can't compress a cylinder full of water.
That means you have WATER leaking into the combustion chamber. BAD head gasket, Intake gasket leaking into the cylinder heads ( NOT COMMON ) Head cracked in are around the valves / from overheating. More then likely you will find your problem in in the head gaskets are heads.
A cracked radiator will NOT put water in the engine and make the oil milky. A bad head gasket WILL put water in the engine and make the oil look milky. That does not neccessarily mean you have a bad engine. Have someone fix or replace the radiator and replace the head gasket. It could be a good engine for a long time yet
No compression could mean a blown head gasket, cracked head or cylinder.
The head gasket is gone or the block/head is cracked. Water is mixing with oil. If you remove the valve cover and the head or the intake manifold you may notice a fluid of a deep battleship gray color. This is due to grinding metal fillament mixing with the water and lubricant due to failed lubrication because chances are that you are losing oil if the block is cracked and engine coolant is mixing with water and oil or the head gasket, or the manifold seal is broken and may need to be replaced. An oil leak doesn't always mean that the block is cracked-- your problem could just be a broken head or manifold gasket. This is easy enough to replace but requires extensive dismantling of the top of the motor.
Assuming you mean engine coolant is mixing with the engine oil, you probably have a bad head gasket and or a cracked head. If you run that engine in that condition for very long, you will destroy the engine internals.
A good clue would be water in the oil. That said, just because you do not have water in the oil, doesn't mean the block is not cracked. Have a good mechanic check the car.
Sounds like you may have a bad head gasket and or a cracked head. Have the cooling system pressure tested soon.
It means the knee is cracked.
How do you know the gasket is not bad? f you oil is milky then there is moisture mixed with the oil. This can be a blown head gasket or a warped or cracked head.
