[DML] Re: antifreeze in my oil

Certainly not a good thing to find anti-freeze in the oil. Some
possible sources include:
Leaking liner seals
Head gasket
Corroded block in the top and leaking seals and hoses allowing the   
  coolant to get into the crankcase.

You definately need to find the source of the leak. Anti-freeze is not
a good lubricant and will ruin your bearings, cam, cylinder walls, and
pistons. A presssure test on the coolant system should help you find
the leak. You may need to remove the intake manifold to examine all
possible sources. Has your engine ever been overheated?
