Question about 1988 Nissan 200SX
I have coolant on the inside of my oil fill cap, small green dots of it, and there is pressure blowing oil out of the filler hole when I take the cap off. It does not blow smoke, but there seems to be enough pressure that it is blowing out my oil pan gasket as well. What should I look at first?

If your car is running good except for the leak, try an item made by Barr's Leak. It is a head gasket repair. It only cost about 14 dollars plus the cost of coolant when you are done. Here is one tip though, follow the directions to the letter. Do not take any shortcuts. I have repaired at least a dozen cars and vans with major head gasket leaks by doing it right. It is a two day about 17 step process that is not real hard to do, but if you do it right it will work, not clog your system and you will not have a problem again, If I had enough time I would tell you each car, just follow the directions. A mechanic that I told this to, failed. I bought a bottle, went to his shop and did over and fixed the car. He skipped a step and thougt he could get away with it.

SOURCE: coolant mixes with oil when
Well, I have bad news. The problem you are having is teh same problem I had with a 94. That front cover over the timing chain has a hole worn in it from teh timing chain. that means one of teh timing chain guides has broken or come free. There are two bolts that hold the right had guide in place as you look at the engine. If the top bolt is missing then water goes directly from the water channel to the engine oil pan. When you fix this remember to flush the motor several times to get the water out of the block. The good news is you can usually have this front cover welded at a machine shop if there is an actual hole. Total cost of teh repair when I did it, $85 new chain and welding and tube of form-a-gasket.
