found out it was the head gasket, but
anothermachic told me the motor was gone
because the oil and antifreeze mixing together.  I
thought that only happena when u have a blown
head gasket

1 Answer


I'm not sure what you are asking but a blown head gasket can cause oil and antifreeze to mix together in the oiling system and/or the cooling system. but just because a head gasket blows, that doesn't guarantee this symptom. you can blow a head gasket and the coolant never makes it to the oiling system
