    Ok, lets not panic here, he said he had oil in the antifreze, not antifreeze in the oil. Big difference. If the seal went between the oil pump and water pump, that would cause the high pressure oil to be pumped int the cooling system and antifreeze.
    Is there any indication of antifrezze in the oil?
    Depends how oil starved the bearings were to determine if there damaged.

Now the dealer has it and is saying that it is "prob" the head gasket BUT they are giving me a hard time saying that my spark plugs INDICATE to them that i have been running octane booster
