If radiator coolant backup in reservoir is there any reason other than blown head gasket if cap and thermostat are good?

If you mean coolant in the engine oil reservoir, then yes, it is slightly possible, but very unlikely, that the engine block water jacket has developed a hole between the water and oil pathways. Other than that, the head gasket is the only place where oil and water can come in contact with each other unless your car is equipped with an engine oil cooler which is internal to the radiator (very unlikely). If you are referring to coolant being in the radiator overflow reservoir, it is supposed to have coolant in it. When the engine is cool, the overflow reservoir should be around half full.

Most likely you have a gasket breach (leak) where a gasket seperates a coolant path from an oil path. This is usually in the head of an engine. Do a cylinder compression check.

Does a knocking sound indicate a cracked head on my 97 jeep grand Cherokee?

A cracked head could be the cause of the problem. This, along with a cracked head gasket would allow engine coolant to enter the oil supply. Coolant and oil do not mix well and over time, the oil looses its capability to lubricate. Check your oil for white spots and check your coolant reservoir for oil residue.

How do you put in antifreeze in a 1992 Toyota Previa after flushing out the system?

Open the hood and the Coolant reservoir on the '92 Previa is next to oil reservoir on the left side. Unscrew radiator cap from the coolant reservoir, add the 50/50 mix of coolant fluid into the reservoir. (Recommend use Prestone extended life coolant) Fill the coolant into the reservoir, it take about 3 gallon, and be sure that the coolant is pass the full mark of the reservoir. Now, turn on the car, during the engine running (about 10 minutes) kept check the level of coolant be sure it still maintains pass the full mark level. Screw back the radiator cap to coolant reservoir. Run engine for another 30 minute. This will ensure that thermostat is open and and ensure the fluid is circular all around of the radiator and hoses. Waite engine cool down, then open the radiator cap and check the coolant fluid level. If the level is low then add more coolant. Do not fill the coolant pass the full Mark's point. If the coolant fluid is still the same as in full mark then it is good. Continue to check the coolant fluid for next couple day. Besure that it is at the full level mark.
