get it straight to a garage, if you have water in your engine oil, its most probably your head gasket has gone......

ya you have blown your head gasket if you have coolent in your oil or vice versa. get it towed to the mechanics, or you can further hurt your car.

If done repeatedly under poor circumstances (ie; car not warmed up properly, etc), but usually head gaskets just wear out. Regular maintenence will help extend the life of it, but as with anything else, they deteroriate over time and eventually need to be replaced.

Doing it ASAP is definitely a smart idea.

look at the water in your radiator and if there is a milky colour or alot of oil residue then your head gasket is gone, keep on driving it and you will be sorry

Thanx everyone for your advise on what to do. Last month i did some overrevving while racing against dutchaccord......... (I lost ghead )
Maybe, instead of fixing the 2.5 engine i'll swap it with a 2.8 litre VANOS engine? If there's anyone that has information about this swap, let me know!

to replace it with a 2.8 you will need to upgrade other parts to OBDII specs or it will not work. If you want it becasue of VANOS, the 325 had it starting in 93 or 94.

OBD (on-board diagnostics) II uses more senors and stores information such as faults and problems. Im not too knowelegeable on the differences in OBDI and II, but I do know that doing anything to or with an OBDII engine is much harder than OBDI. Because your car is OBDI, it may not have all the senors required for the OBDII ECU to run the engine correctly. Basically, you may have to spend more money on useless parts if all you want the 2.8 for is VANOS.

I shall thinking about the more costs when i'm ordering the new engine........ hopefully it isn't too expensive........

Ok, first of all i suggest buying the M50/M52 325 engine. If you buy the vanos M52 engine you can drop M3 cams in there and substantially more horsepower. You will basically smoke your friend. If you have an automatic, buy a manual - you will spank him. There's a lot of little things you can do to gain more power.. but in the end it will cost you a lot of $$$$. He can get sooo more horsepower with the same amount of money you spend to compete with him. Anyway, that's not the point, take him through curvies and you'll own him. You car is not made to race in a straight line. (neither is the honda)

as for the headgasket... if you see white smoke coming from your tailpipes.. it's wasted. if coolant constantly drains from the resevoir.. it's wasted. If you notice your car's power is not what it used to be, it might be low compression.. and bad headgasket
