Default Can you tell the difference between a blown head or intake gasket

I'm not sure witch iv got, I have heard that a bad intake gasket will do the same exact thing as a blown head gasket, that they will both mix coolant with oil, and I'm pretty sure I have coolant in my oil, on my dipstick it shows that I have a lot more oil than I should have and the last time I did a oil change I put the exact amount that I should put in, and also I can see like a green tint in the oil on the dipstick I rarely have started the truck up in the past two months but I'm looking to make it my daily driver. I already have my distributer off, intake manifold, TBI, and one side of my exausht manifolds. Before I go any further I wanted to know if anyone could tell if it is the intake manifold or a blown head gasket. My engine is a 350 small block, oh and my truck has been blowing a lot of white smoke out with water running out of the exuasht. Thanks and god bless.

if you have the intake off already, look at the gaskets. If they are in good shape then it is probably a head gasket.

You can usually tell really easily where the gasket is blown.

Sounds more like a head gasket to me.Also when water is in the oil it will be milky or seperated.If you drain the oil you will be able to better tell because water and oil don't mix.

If you lived here I'd do it for $300+parts. But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. You have to live in Florida.

Most head gaskets I do I only charge $300 labor. There are some cars I wont touch though because they are just too big of a PITA for me.

You going to do it yourself or take it to a shop?

Shouldn't really even take you that long. I wouldn't pay $300 labor for someone else to do it. Probably take a couple hours if it's that truck.
