Look at your oil filler cap see if there is a tan foamy looking substance usually means water/anti freeze is in your oil. Pull spark plugs and check and see if any plug is wet with water. When driving see if there is white smoke coming from your exhaust. These are all the quick and easy checks, another method is to purchase and exhaust gas detector to use in your cooling system, you put it on your radiator fill tube and if there are any exhaust gases present the chemical in the detector will change color. Another good trouble shooting source is an online tech source called ALLDATA.COM the service cost $14.95 a year but it is so well worth it, with this servcie there is nothing you can not do. T HEMPLE
