Water leaks in Engins oil

Asked by Leonart30 Apr 21, 2019 at 09:41 PM about the 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello Good Guys of Car Gurus, my 2012 Mitsubishi
Lancer is experiencing water in engine oil leak, it
started from an overheating problem wherein if I
am in idle for a long time it gets overheat but once
I throttle it to upto about 6,000rpm the engine
temperature goes down. I replaced the
thermostatic valve and radiator cap, and still
overheating, now water has found its way to the
engine. However there is no pressure build up on
the Radiator. Where does the water leaks from?

Sounds like a leaking head gasket.
