If your oil looks watery and milky, you more than likely have a blown head.

Get it checked -- you actually could do more damage to your car engine. Some cars also get a mositure build up in the oil that might be white or yellowish color if you don't get the engine warmed up all the way in the morning causing condensation to build up on the underside of the oil cap.

More than likely it is a head gasket, the type of vehicle and mileage would be helpful, however, some times to keep an older vehicle running for a short while, would be to loosen the radiator cap, lets the pressure off, but u definitly have a cracked head, block or blown headgasket.

Why a car needs a radiator to operate effectively?

The process of the engine creates huge amounts of heat. Water is past through the engine block (that is where the cylinders are ) where it collects heat from the case body of the engine block and its taken to the radiator where air is passed through the radiator cooling the water. The cycle continues. If the water did not circulate then the engine would expand considerably, the cylinders will also then expand as would the moving parts to the point where the friction would cause the engine to cease up.


What do you need to do when water freezes in car?

As in the engine? Don't attempt to start it. Water expands when it freezes. If the water in your engine block has frozen there is a good possibility that damage has been done to the block.

Will water crack a engine block?

Yes. You can freeze the water, making it expand, or you can add cold water to a hot engine, shocking the block. You prevent freezing with antifreeze. You prevent shock by never adding water to a hot engine. If there is enough water in the engine to have the water pump provide circulation, you can add water SLOWLY, but you should really only add water to a hot engine when there is very little to add.

Coolant flows from the engine block into the through the coolant jacket?

Kind of. There are water jackets inside the engine block and usually the heads of a liquid-cooled engine Water (or coolant) will either flow from the block to the head to the radiator, or from the radiator through the head to the block (a reverse flow design). The latter is better because it cools the heads first and helps prevent detonation. It also reduces thermal shock to the engine block.
