    Thanks...I knew the radiator caps in Neons were POS, but I couldn't gather how that would put oil in my coolant...it makes sense now...

    A cracked block could cause that if I'm not mistaken.

    You used NuFinish on it.

    Why'd you post this in the detailing section?

    Actually I have used that before. I forgot about it. I had a crank shaft held on to a harmonic balance wheel with JB Weld for over 20,000 miles lol.
