Re: car questions

The last two could be fuse related...the first seems like a cracked gasket

Re: car questions

Head gasket most likely...but probably a small one if you just onlu noticed oil while doing plugs and not from smoke out the back...might try some head gasket sealer since it seems small

+1 problems always get worse then end up costing as much as that new mod you were planning on investing in! I hate when stuff like that happens!

9 times out of 10 a cracked "gasket" would be water in the cylinders not oil. Oil in the cylinders could be from worn out valve seals pcv system sucking oil into the intake or possible worm out piston rings. As for the odometer the sn95 dashes are known for the gears in them breaking. The CEL light could be that someone pulled the bulb out of it in the dash. I'd take it to a shop an see if they can pull codes from the ECM.

Sand in the radiator sounds like somebody did blow a head gasket and dumped block sealer in it...
