My wifes 1.8 litre turbo inline 4 suddenly overheated and the oil leaked into the coolant resevoir causing a milkshake like consitaincy, I wondered if this happened because of a head gasket failure or a possible cracked block or head. Thanks Rob

IT sounds like you blew a head gasket and the oil is mixing with the coolant.
