MAYBE JUST BLOW HEAD GASKET?

1990 Lincoln Mark VII

Engine Mechanical problem
1990 Lincoln Mark VII V8 Automatic

I just bought a lincoln mark VII and it was running fine but then I notice it started to get hot so I pulled over and as I was pulling over my car just died and I opened the hood and steam just stared pouring out there was oil on the engine that was like burnt red. My boyfriend said I might of just blown one blown head gaskets and he can fix it. But is that really the only thing thats wrong? And my car still runs fine for a little bit until the engine gets hot.

Was tehre coolant on the ignition coil and ignition moudle? Could have fryed it!

Before replacing the headgasket perform a compression test on all cylinders.
