Hello to all,

So my 83 GL has a cracked oil pump about 2 weeks now, I noticed that my oil is extremely milky, could the cracked oil pump cause this?

I would like to think so, as the head gasket is harder to replace.

    If it ain't broke, you're not trying.

No. The oils pump has no contact with the cooling system. Sorry to pee on your parade, but it sounds like HG's. :(

Ea81 headgaskets only take about 2 hours to replace start to finish.
