internal88 : Im assuming you are seeing engine oil floating on top of the coolant .
internal88 : This is not going to be a good news.
how can i fix it?
internal88 : The cylinder head gasket is mostly likey cracked.
internal88 : This is why engine oil is mixed together with the coolant .
internal88 : you could fix it by replacing the cylinder head gasket. This is a metal asker between the head and the engine block.
what is book time to fix it?
internal88 : Give me a few minutes I'm looking it up for you.
how much would a shop charge to fix it?
internal88 : You will have to check the cylinder head for crack.
internal88 : please hold, thanks.
internal88 : 6.5 hours.
internal88 : this is the standard rate.
internal88 : If they have to check the head for crack it will be extra hour.
internal88 : the 6.5 is just for replacing the gasket.
