Engine overheating

My car was leaking oil in may and then it started overheating. I had the radiator flushed out and even after that it still would overheat after a short drive on the road. When I look in the coolant tank it is full of sludge which contains oil in it. I have been told the engine needs to be decarbed or that a gasket is blown but could it be a radiator problem?

Do you
have the same problem?

Yes, but you need to have it removed and acid flushed.

If it is oil, then yes, you have another issue, possible a blown head gasket
