This is the first time I pulled the pan, When i first got the car I simply replaced the water pump put in new coolant and started it up and it never smoked. And now that I am around to tearing down the motor, when I drained all of that brand new coolant I put it from the water pump, none of it had any traces of oil. So It wouldnt appear to have a blown HG, but I think I will be pulling the head off and just replacing the HG and every other seal while Im at it. Thanks for the input guys.
i had a CADILAC STS blown hg 1st sign is a steam or sweet smell from exasust and next is the over heating 3rd oil in the coolant (:
