Engine Performance problem
1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles

my car is running "rough" and recently started stalling sometimes when backing up (usually uphill). I topped off fluids today while under hood and saw "milkshake-like" residue on and around cap for coolant resevoir. Something tells me oil is mixing with coolant here - leaking head gasket? Does this sound right and is it a pain in the @#* to replace on this car?

Do you
have the same problem?

Sounds like a head gasket issue indeed or a warped head or even a cracked block.

It is not only a pain in the ass on your car, but on any vehicle that needs the headgasket to be changed.

Just very labor intensive, not too hard just very lengthy.
