I have a 95 saturn with the 1.9 single over head cam and I am getting oil in the water. I changed the head gasket and now it leaks more oil in the water then it what was previously. I just want to know if it is a cracked head or a cracked block or if it could be anything else?

What usually happens to those is the head cracks in the number 3 or 4 cam journal very common. If u take the valve off sometimes u can see the clean spot where the coolant has washed oil around the cam area.U would have to pressure test the cooling system without the cam in to see the leak or have ur head pressure tested. Let me know what u find.

It was a cracked head. I bought a re-manufactured head and put it on and it seems to work fine. Thanks again.

Glad to hear u got it figured out that's what were here for to help people out. Just so u know when u get oil in the coolant like that u should change every hose thermostate water pump coolant bottle coolant cap and flush the heater core take off both hoses to it and give it a good flushing and te rest of the cooling system. Hope u use us again. Also thanks again for ur donation and and thank u for using 2carspro. Let me know if u have anymore questions.
