I have a 1999 WJ with a 4.0 that had a blown head gasket. This is the first time I have done a head gasket but I'm pretty mechanically inclined and I had the service manual so I attempted it. I finished everything step by step. I started her up for the first time and it ran no problem.
I noticed the coolant got low so I topped it off thinking that it was just the thermostat opening. I drained the oil and noticed it was still milky but i figured maybe it was the left over oil-coolant mix from the blown head gasket. I refilled the oil again and let it run for 15 min. I let the fan cycle on and off a few times then drained the oil again. I noticed this time it was even more milky. This time it had the viscosity of coolant. I checked the coolant and there is no oil in it.
So what did I do wrong? Is there something I could have missed? I made sure I coated bolt number 11 on the head with sealant and everything was torqued down to what the service manual said. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
