There is water in my oil and I wanted to know if there are tests I should run on my car before I do anything?
also if it is a warped head or blown head gasket if I could use some sort of liquid (like the blue devil) to stop the leak and not have to spend $2,000 for a overhaul? Also is there any other way that water can get in to my oil other then a blown head or head gasket? Also is it possible that I can fix the problem myself?

Do you
have the same problem?

Sealers are useless and cause more issues. Repair the problem.

Have a leak down test performed to verify the cylinder of failure. Have the head checked for cracks once it is off.

Is there any other way water can get in my oil? Would I be able to fix it myself? What is the cost to do the job? How do u do a leak down test? Could I do a compression test?
