DO I HAVE A BLOWN HEAD GASKETT?

2002 Volkswagen GTI • 140,000 miles

My coolant disappears 5 minutes after driving and my oil pressure light comes on once I get to about 15 mph. I checked the oil and it was milky. I don't want to know the answer here but do I have a blown head gaskett?
I would also like to know if this is where all my coolant is going.(Into the engine). Thanks.

Signed,
No bad news.

Could be. Could also be a cracked head. It needs to be looked into further.

Check the oil cooler. It's very common for oil coolers to have internal leaks. Do NOT replace the engine or headgasket without first doing a leakdown or compression test. If it is the headgasket, your engine will fail a leakdown test.

But first, look at the oil cooler.
