If you have oil in the coolant it sounds to me as though the heads gasket has faild to make a seal causing engine compression to escape into water and oilways via the gasket. I done a gasket replacement recently and tried to locate the head onto the block without any help and damaged the head gasket. Like a fool I tried to flatten it and refit it but it didn't seal and lost lots of water. I had to take it all apart anf replace the gasket again. - What a pain in the ar**e that was!!! I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings but I rekon you may have to take the head off again. But then again I may be wrong. Sorry and all that!!

Keep me posted, I'll be interested to see what the outcome is. Cheers
