1996 GMC Sierra Z71 extended cab, 5.7L (350 Vortec), 302,000 miles. Anti-freeeze leaking into the oil (stick shows a milky gray color) cap shows moisture (white foam around inside edge of cap). Radiator is a tranny and oil cooled type, it's BRAND NEW and new cap. There are NO external signs of leaks (manifold, hoses, radiator seams, etc). 99% sure that it's 1 of 4 culprits or a combination of either intake manifold gasket, cylinder heads and or gasket, engine block. I'm presently unemployed starting a new job with NO FINANCIAL MEANS to replace the engine NOW. Need a QUIK FIX product or method (something relatively inexpensive) on the market that could buy me some time so that either I can buy another vehicle, repair or replace the engine. I'm not going to hold anyone to this because I'm well aware the risks. I'm VERY mechanically inclined, can do most anything. I'M just in a DESPARATE way!
