i have a 87 dodge raider. The oil is not clear but a medium light color.I put water in radiator and tried to turn over and the water was coming out around the exhaust. Is that a blown head casket or a blown motor. It was overheated once. Can you help.

Hi: It sounds like a head gasket. Remove the head, check for evidence that the gasket was leaking. Also, check the head for cracks or warping.

Let me know what you find.

I would take a look to see if your head is warped, those aluminum heads arent very friendly with heat so you more than likely warped it
