I found some water in my oil when I checked the dip stick! It stutters when under heavy load like going up a hill and from a start! If I shift to second or third it tends to run better! I checked the spark plugs and cleaned and re gapped them. Ran much better but still not where it should be! Before I dig in and replace the head gasket is there anything else I should be looking for?
