Water/antifreeze in oil! D:

my jeep's Oil was very light like chocolate milk. I drained it into multiple pans. I have suspicions it was a blown head gasket but could it be more? Last time i turned it over was about a month ago when it had been sitting for like 6 months (didnt have the time or money to invest.) when we took off the air intake we saw oil in the carburetor. can anyone help me diagnose this before i spend a lot of money on the wrong stuff. :x
(im not a mechanic )

Edit: its a 4cyl 2.5 liter Engine.

Are you sure you´re right in the forums "TJ area".
A TJ has fuel injection and not a carburetor.

Water/antifreeze in the oil sounds like a damaged head gasket.

Well it is a 1997 jeep wrangler standard, no upgrades, not even stock stereo.

that would be the head gasket. IF you can spend 10 bucks on a compression tester that would be your best bet.

Try at your own risk on this but can you start it? If yes let it run and see what color the exhaust is (white- blown gasket- blueish- oil blow by meaning your rings). Also see if it smells sweet. Sweet could also mean head gasket. Also what does your radiator fluid look like?

Then you didn't have oil in your carb...maybe you should have someone look at it that knows what engines look like....but I'm sure what you meant was oil around the throttle body.

that all came out of my oil pan, it was about 2.5X what the engine holds

edit: the black oil container had 5liters already in it from a previous oil change.

Yea you blew the head gasket.
Grab the socket set out and go to work. You can have it apart in a half day (4 hours) taking your time and back together in another 4 hours. I would while the head is off check it for being flat and not warped. See if you see any heat spots on the head or the block. Also this is a great time to clean the cylinders (a gallon or 2 of diesel fuel) get a rag and dip it in the diesel fuel and clean stuff. Brake clean works well to I like diesel for the smell . Toss it all back together and the truck will feel like new. ( BTW clean the heads extremely well. Un gunk them from the carbon deposits. I would also get a tube of lube for fresh built motors. Since after you clean the head you want to keep those parts lubricated till the oil gets there. It is like 4 bucks for the tube better to be safe then sorry.

Should be no more then 500 bucks max in parts and everything you need to get her back running.

That is what wrangler forum is for helpin out another jeeper.


Thinking about it when you put it back together go grab cheap cheap oil like the cheapest you can find. Then turn the truck on let it get warm. Once the engine is at operating temp turn it off and drain the oil when it is hot. Remember it will be hot. This will get most of the gunk out of the pan too. Then put your normal stuff in it and your truck will be as good as new.

you will also want to look in yout radiator and see if theres oil in there. if so, you're going to need to flush it and the entire cooling system out. dish soap works well for getting the oil out.
