[DML] Re: antifreeze in my oil

If it didn't overheat then it probably is NOT a head gasket or a liner
seal. The most likely possability is that one of the cavities on the
top of the motor has rotted through and the seals, gaskets, or hoses
under the intake manifold are leaking into the crankcase. Since the
stuff is green we can assume it is not getting there from a crack in
the head. My suggestion would be to pull the intake manifold, pressure
test the coolant system, and see if the cavities are still sealed. You
may not have done any irrepairable damage yet if you have good oil
pressure and you can do a good compression test. I would NOT run the
motor until you can stop the anti-freeze from getting into the
crankcase and causing more damage. Try not to dislodge any of the dirt
in the cavities and getting it into the crankcase. After you do all of
this and you have to seal up the cavities you should change the oil
and filter again after running the motor a little to get all of the
crud out. In fact you may want to drop the pan and wipe it out.
