2000 Suzuki Jimny - Water in oil.
« on: August 01, 2011, 11:55:07 »
Done a head gasket on this after the oil was contaminated with water.

Had the head skimmed - No visable cracks.

Done Approx 100 Miles and now oil is all creamy again.

Is there any where the water could be getting in or is more likely that there is a non-visable crack somewhere in engine?

All help greatly recieved!!

One of the response guys had the same problem with a jimny, changed the head gasket 3 times in a very short space of time. Seemed to be a 'Friday special'  The only other thing could be to have the block surfaced  :huh:
