Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, I have a voyager 2.5td manual. Today temp got hot really quick, so stopped and checked coolant level. As i removed the cap a thick gooey black oily looking gunge (sounds good) came out. I have checked the oil and the level has not changed nor colour.
CAN SOMEONE HELP??????

Sounds like a bad head gasket. Coolant in the oil probably won't show up visibly on your dipstick since it is heavier than oil. The head gasket shouldn't be too difficult to replace unless the engine has overhead cams. If you do it yourself, make sure to organize the pushrods, rocker arms, and hardware so it all goes back the way it came out. Another possible cause of this problem, though it isn't very likely, is that the engine block is fractured between a coolant and oil passage, causing them to mix.
