My sons 2001 GMC Jimmy was overheating when he got home the other day. I let it cool down and then I checked the coolant level in the radiator and I noticed engine oil in the radiator. I checked the oil dipstick and there was none showing on it. I thought blown headgasket or worst case cracked head or block. How can you tell if it's a blown headgasket rather than a cracked head or a cracked block?

P0410 . Secondary Air . I have replaced the Idle Air Valve at the carb. throat , that was fun . I have replaced the Air (smog) pump itself and the solenoid next to it along with the rubber hoses connected to it . Everything seems fine for a while , but , eventually the check engine light comes on again and when i check...the computer says it's still the secondary air system . I don't think there's anything left to replace in the system ....and by the way...sometimes when i come to a slow stop , the engine quits ..but starts right back up .
