Engine Mechanical problem
1984 Other Nissan Models 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 296798 miles
Just recently I took my 1984 Nissan 720 King Cab Ute for a 3 hour drive, on avival at destination she steammed up and had not auto feed the cooling ststem into the reserve tank nor had it obviously opend the thermostat,
Now I have replaced the thermostat, and have a tapping sound coming from my OHC Tappet case (Reson I dont know) possibly the lifters need replacing
but most of all I now have water in my oilk I think as the oil is turning grey/ milky white
my questions are
The tappeting sound from the OHC tappet cover what can it be?
The milky white grey substance in the oil? What can the cause be?
The theory in my mind is its only a head gasget as the water/coolant is in the oil and not vice versa. So that the water preasure has ruptured into the oil when the engin has become warmed up to operating temprature and this obviously happend when the engin boiled almost dry due to the stuck thermostat and the wrong radiator cap for a recovery system that I fifted.
the engin is now sounding like a lawnmower funning on its last leggs and shudders like an old victor lawnmower also LOL
Any help is greatly appreciated thanks in advance
have the same problem?
