During the cold weather the thermostat housing cracked on my 05 SRT-10. Didn't think it was a big deal however I fired up the engine and added water and oil started spewing from the cracked thermostat housing. Does oil run through or by the housing??????

pics attached.

Only if you put oil in your coolant reservoir, lol! Next time dont start your vehicle with cracked thermostat housing, lol! I wonder why it cracked? Ive never heard of that. Check the fluid and verify that its coolant, not oil. Then replace housing....

Looks like antifreeze wasn’t strong enough and block froze. Hopefully it only busted thermostat housing and possibly front cover. Also a big possibility it took out the entire block. You’ll need to see if the front cover is also cracked or moved.
