    OP never confirmed or denied anything regarding this publicly, hence why I asked.
    Apparently via PM it was confirmed the coolant and oil look milky, hence it is a blown HG.


    "Advices" huh? Ok...

    Move to the off topic forum. Automotive tech is clearly not your strength.

    Oil and coolant shouldn't be mixing, you have a bad HG.

    The next thing to address is whether you serverely overheated the engine, causing irreparable warpage.

    You don’t want to believe the head gasket is blown, even though it’s the truth. It’s time for you to accept the truth.

    Yank the head and check for engine warpage.

    The engine overheating and blown head gasket are one and the same.

    I'm with boofoo and Mr Baker on this one - that it's the head gasket. I had nearly identical issues that you're experiencing.

    Further a sign the hg is failing.

    HG is an easy fix, drain the fluids, pull the head. Assuming no warpage - replace the gasket, torque head down properly, replace fluids.

    If you keep driving on it while the temp is going up, it's going to be more than just the head gasket you're replacing. I speak from experience when I say this...

    Well this escalated quickly.. op, do a compression test and a press test of the coolant system, were trying to save you money by not buying all those other parts to have the problem not go away. I agree with the head gasket as well, once its off put a straight edge across the head surface in all diff directions, if overheated these heads will warp and need to be decked true. If you still dont believe us then go head buy all those parts do as you must and come back and say same probs are happening, by then were done helping... its funny when someone asks advice 3+ ppl have a solution but its ignored and repeated over and over and over and over and over and over lol....

    Why are you being standoffish? With the exception of one guy who is wrong, we are all saying it's the head gasket. Why ask for advice if you're not going to take it? @civteck is trying to help you by saving you money. Do troubleshooting first before throwing money into it. Civteck even provided you with how to troubleshoot and you tell him to get a life? Come on, man.
