    Need Confirmation PLease!! HeadGaskets

    Buddy of mine has a 98 SS. He had some over heating issues about 6months ago. He took it to a mechanic and he found Oil in the Radiator. It was a milk shake color. Now the last time I saw this milk shake color it was in my 94 LT1 oil cap and valve covers. NOT The radiator. So my question is, Could this be most likley a Blown Head Gasket. I think for sure the heads have to come off.

    It's a blown head gasket. You could have a milkshake in either the oil, OR the coolant. It all depends on what leaks into what.

    Yeah thats what I thought. HE said the computer was shutting the car off so maybe it didnt hot enough to crack a head. I dunno. Im an LT1 guy. Im sure the principles are the same.

    He can speculate all he wants, engine still has to come apart. Pull the heads and inspect everything. Milkshake tends to show up in the crankcase, but depending on where the leak is, it can show up in the coolant. Get the oil out of the car quickly though, the bearings do not like anti-freeze.
