Cool triton v10 problems

i have a 2001 6.8l v10 and have nothing but problems. now i got a knocking noise and the oil has water in it. i have no clue what is wrong and on start up it blows white smoke till its warm i have looked at the coolent lvls and they have not changed. the oil pressure is fine while driving but at idle and stop lights and stop sighns it drops and the light comes on. i have not had a cheak engine light yet? what could be wrong? i have blown plugs 5 time 3 coils and 2 head replacments. i hape its just old oil or bad oil i have no clue it is due for an oil change but would just oil oil make all this **** happen i also am seeing oil comming form the intake on the throtle body but the oil beathers are right there too. whats anyones best guess!?!?!?

Let me get this straight. You've been driving your V-10 around knowing you have water in your oil, and now you wonder why it is making knocking noises, blowing smoke and behaving badly?

This is just an educated guess based in what you have posted. I could be all wrong.

1. The water in the oil is probably from a head gasket failure.

2. The head gasket failure is probably from a failure to install the "new heads" properly.

3. The knocking sound is probably your crankshaft bearings protesting after being run with water mixed with oil. Lack of oil pressure at idle tends to confirm the bearing clearance is way out of whack.

4. The oil you see at the intake is probably from the PCV valve, a sign of major internal engine damage.

5. You've turned a small problem (blown head gasket) into a major repair (engine needs to be rebuilt/replaced) by driving the truck.

Yep, X2 on what redford said. NEVER drive a car that still runs, that has oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil.

You probably have been driving the truck with detonation issues which in turn led to some of the plug issues and now bottom end issues. Also possible the head installation was not done correctly. The past doesn't really matter now, sounds to me like the engine needs tore down.

mine throws white smoke(steam) upon startup in the morning. but its due to moisture collecting in the exhaust. i have no knocking or any thing truck runs perfect no issues with coolant or oil. as far as your issues, sounds like the truck has been majorly abused!

But, at any rate, welcome to FTE!

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. You may want to see what you can do about finding a replacement engine, either from a junkyard or from a rebuilder like Jasper.

Despite what you have seen, the Triton engines are tough and reliable engines. You've had some bad experiences with this one, but it sounds like this was caused by abuse. A V-10, if maintained properly, will easily go 300,000 miles without any major repairs.

i think we should take it easy on larkin. i highly doubt the op wanted or tried to drive his truck in the ground

--my best guess is we are missing part of the story or at least he didnt know what was going on or what he was doing everytime he started it

I really hate it when people say that. People most commonly refer to the 7.3L PSD in that manner...and many members here on FTE found out the hard way that they can, in fact be killed! Just go down to the 300 forum...lots of guys with broken engines!

I could attack the "best engine ever made" thing with the puny 150 HP output, too! Seriously, my wife's 4 cylider CR-V has more power than a 300 Six!

Your problem IS bad oil: it has water in it. You have either a head gasket that has failed, a cracked cyl. head, or cracked block (unlikely). I don't know the history of your motor so I won't comment, on how it got that way, other than to say that I am very sorry to hear you have such a problem with your V10. Best of luck to you.

others - Yes, the 300 straight 6 was a great truck motor: not a lot of power, but tons of torque, and bulletprooof.
