Water in the oil? 96 Chevy Silverado 350 vortec?

Just bought the truck has been running fine then it immediately ran hot after about five miles and started spitting and sputtering so we put it n neutral and coasted as far as we could since the house wasnt far but then it stalled out so we pulled off checked under the hood and found that there was water in the oil?

Since its water in the oil it could be that the intake is leaking and it is internally and when they do this it can cause the lifters to bleed down from the coolant getting into them and that could be the cause of the stuttering and sputtering

Hello, it seems that you have a blown intake gasket. These are made of plastic and over time they crack they usually leak externally instead of internally. Thank you

Engine missing out, spitting and sputtering


the problem you describe indicates a air/fuel ratio problem so I would be looking at any hoses that may have perished, MAP/MAF sensors and coil problems. If it is possible then get a fault code reading as it will save money from "guess" repairing

Check your fuel filter again. Dirt from the tank could have clogged it again.

If the pipe got cherry red while trying to start, it was because of unburnt fuel entering the catalytic converter, most likely. Check for signs of plug fouling and injectors hanging open. You're likely flooding your engine due to dirt accumulation in an injector.

1995 Jeep grand cherokee is missing while running. When it is under a heavy load (driving fast) it runs fine. When idleing and slow driving it spits and sputters.


I have the same problem on my 95 grand cherokee laredo. Sometimes it starts out fine and after about 10 miles it starts spitting and sputtering. Then after a while it seems to clean out and run fine again for a little while. Then other times it starts out spitting and sputtering at the begining. I changed the fuel filter and that was not it. It is a 4.0L 6cyc. Any Ideas?

Thanks,

if you have an electric fuel pump that would explain the hum. unhook your incoming fuel line and blow the line clear, sounds like you've got some junk in your tank.it'll build up on the screen in the tank then fall off (at least partially) when your making turns or hitting bumps or holes. next time it's only got a gallon or so of fuel i'd drop the tank and check the pickup tube inside. sux but that's the only way to get to it. while you've got the tank off and out from under the jeep, might as well clean it out real good and replace anything inside (usually the screen) that doesn't look right, dirty etc. wouldn't hurt to run a bottle of fuel system cleaner in the next full tank of fuel either. preferably as soon as you put your tank back. good luck
