What does the oil look like? A milkshake? Or real black and thick?

Oil should have been changed twice after the repair to ensure that any coolant contamination was removed. As for the overheating, was the cooling system refilled properly? Some vehicles require bleeding air from the cooling system once refilled. Were the head gaskets put on right side up? If not cooling system passages may now be blocked. HTH. -Jim
