Could that be anything besides head gaskets or is that pretty much it ? 94 4.6 89,000 miles Thanks.

Good day,
It could be something worse like a cracked block or head... On the other hand it could be, on an off chance, the oil filter adapter that mounts to the block could have a leaking gasket between the oil and water ports...

Good luck!!
Cheers!!

Like mentioned, it could be the oil filter adapter (where the oil filter goes, and where the lower radiator hose is), head, or head gasket.

I had the tranny fluid heat exchanger in the radiator go on my 97 and fill up the coolant with tranny fluid. It was pink (think strawberry milk, not chocolate milk).

Thanks for the help, I'll check the filter tomorrow hopefully that is what it is . I did just have the oil changed right before this happened so maybe i'll get lucky, i kinda find it hard to believe that a 4.6 with 89k would blow a head gasket but who knows. Also its never been overheated and there are no driveability problems or smoke from the tailpipe.
