| | oh god... oil in the coolant.
well, i'm just finishing up swapping heads on my ls1 car, and noticed today that there was a little oil in the coolant. is there a possibility this is just trash that was in the heads getting into the cooling system? the heads had oil in them, so i'm thinking it might have just mixed in with the coolant when i put them on. i took my time on the head gaskets/ heads. i torqued them down to spec, in the order that was specified. also used all new gm performance multilayer steel head gaskets, and head studs. oil isnt milky, and no white smoke from the exhaust either from what i can tell. i really hope it isnt time to pull the heads off again before i even got the car running this time.
