    Headgasket!! Just to verify, do you have milky oil, or gooey coolant????

    My 94 Eldorado is doing the same thing. This oil is not milky and the coolant is not sticky. What do you mean by headgaskets? I had my headgaskets replaced a little over a year ago.
    Thanks,
    Teresa

    Well you may not necessarily have milky oil or gooey coolant.... But you could still have a leak in the gasket.....

    Hopefully the heads werent warped, causing the gasket to fail again!

Now I have a new problem the smell and the engin hesitates mechanic said i need a new electrical coil one of the three isn't firing as strong and new plugs and wires he did mention perhaps a blown gasket(perhaps?). N hell i'm just a broke college kid who bought a car way out of my leage.
