Your head gaskets are blown. sorry to be the barrer of bad news.
Blown head gaskets.
The head gaskets must be replaced. This is a major repair that should only be undertaken by a professional.
Remove the head, Grind it flat and replace it using a new gasket.
YES. The intake gaskets have NOTHING to do with the head gaskets. It is a very common problem that the intake gaskets blow. It is not common for the head gaskets to leak unless the engine was over heated, and I mean HOT.
It will solve the problem. The 3.4 is notorious for poor head gaskets. You can replace the gaskets on the engine without replacing the engine, and that will solve the problem for quite a while. It will be much less costly than an engine replacement.
The fix is to remove both heads, have them inspected at a machine shop for cracks, or warpage, and install 2 new head gaskets.
water in the engine oil or a large amount of water in the exhaust also a compression test
Cracked cylinder head, blown head gasket, engine block or intake gaskets.
You can't. The heads must be removed in order to replace the head gaskets. No other way to do this.
WATER. This indicates a blown head gasket. Damage has been done to the engine in the form of overheating and the head gasket(s) have blown. Water therefor has leaked into the oil. Replacing the head gaskets is the way to repair this motor.
Cracked or warped heads, motor block, Bent valves, blown head and/or header gaskets worst case locking up the engine.
engine burning oil( white or blueish exhaust smoke ), water in oil, oil in water, water in exhaust.
You cannot repair a blown head gasket, you must remove the heads and replace the gasket.
If you have the 3.3 engine then the answer is "NO". They do not have a history of blowing head gaskets. The other person probly had all different motorsI have a 98 Buick century (blown head gasket). My father in law has a 94 Buick century (blown head gasket). mother in law has 96 Pontiac grand prix ( has the same 3.1 liter engine as the Buick century) and guess what (blown head gasket). that's just my family. Very Very poor design by gm if you ask me.
I'm pretty sure your engine block needs a precise mixture of oxygen and gas etc and the gaskets on your heads are the main air tight place where when cracked or blown gaskets happen oxygen leaks into your expansion chamber in the engine and more oxygen higher explosion temp to push ur piston therefore your engine gets hotter faster new gasket will solve your problem I beliave if not thermostat and radiator
Too much oil in an automotive engine can cause high oil pressure. High oil pressure could cause blown seals and gaskets allowing oil to leak out.
There can be many resons for this. A common cause for this is an air pocket in the cooling system if the 3.4l v6 engine. Air pockets can be cause by low coolant level, or more serious engine problems- I.E. leaking intake manifold gaskets, blown head gaskets.
If the engine was allowed to get real hot it could damage bearings and crack/warp heads or blown head gaskets. Damaged bearings would show up as low oil pressure, a flickering oil light at an idle and noises that weren't there before. Cracked/warped heads or blown head gaskets would show up as coolant mixing with engine oil and white smoke (steam) coming out the exhaust pipe.
With a blown head gasket the engine will still run, poorly with issues, but run. A blown engine will not continue to run from that moment on.
Probably, unless a cylinder has filled with engine coolant. In any case it is not a good idea to run an engine in that condition, if coolant mixes with the motor oil you can expect more damage to the engine.
The size of the motor does not cause a head gasket to blow.. Its a ford though so its basically every motor they put their name on..
No It's not very common.
Overheating can warp and crack cylinder heads, head gaskets and all bearings, especially crank bearings. In extreme it will destroy the engine
