Re: Signs Of A Blown Head Gasket....
The truck will not start twice in a row. It starts cold, then will not start again unless I let it sit for a few hours. There is fuel and water (coolant) in the oil, which produces a frothy white mixture that smells like gas. It starts up perfectly when I first crank it, but will not start again once it's warm.
I was getting a misfire code on cyl 6 and pulled the plug wire, which was bent, so I replaced all of the wires but still have the same problem.
Somewhere the gas is mixing with the oil and coolant and either clogging it up or preventing it from cycling. I doubt it's an injector issue. Seems more like it could only be a bad gasket somewhere.
At this point I'm not sure if the truck's worth keeping, but without it starting I won't be able to ask for much at all.
EDIT: I'm guessing the gas in the oil is coming from the engine turning over, and the injectors spraying, which eventually drips down into the oil since it isn't igniting? Still doesn't explain why it won't start twice in a row...
