Blown Head gasket

A leaking head gasket would cause oil to leak into the coolant or coolant into the oil pan, also coolant into the cylinders and compression into the cooling system.
Lack of coolant would not keep the engine from starting but coolant in the cylinders could foul the spark plugs.
If you take the radiator cap off and can see bubbles in the coolant when the engine is running, or the radiator builds up an excessive amount of pressure, it could be the head gasket.
You could remove the thermostat to make sure it is not stuck closed.
The only way to know for sure if the head gasket is leaking is to take the cyl head off and inspect it.

Someone is scamming you BAD. If you needed a new oil pump, your engine would be long toasted by now. If your timing chain BROKE, it would not even be running. I'm afraid by this point, you may have to get a new engine, just because of mechanic's incompetence, but let's first try and sort out what is going on here. First of all: Is your Ford pre ~1989? If so, it probably has a carburetor, or the electronic so-called carburetor, that has been misadjusted, and is shaking the truck. That would be nice, as it is an easy, and a relatively cheap fix (Readjust, or if all fails, replace carb). If it is post 1989, you could have a failed Electronic Fuel Injection system, that it would be good to have a mechanic with an OBDII port reader check over. You might also have the ignition system tested for a good spark, and have it tuned correctly (Again, assuming older, non-computer controlled.) Finally, if all else fails, have your vehicle tested for a cracked block/head/head gasket.

On idel ok when reving up very top end rattle have been told the block is a 204e and head is a 205e could that be the problem

If you build an engine like this, you must use the composite head gasket from the 204 engine or you will have a heavy top end rattle!

Great question. B204 and B234 engines have negative deck heights. (the piston sticks out of the block a bit, so you need a thicker head gasket.

When you drive any overheating vehicle, especially those with aluminum heads, you run a high risk of the heads warping which results in head gasket failure (evidenced by white smoke from the exhaust)
Your repair should be to remove the heads, have them dye tested at a machine shop and checked for straightness (cut if necessary).
Replace the head gaskets and all other gaskets involved in removal.
Your catalytic converter may or may not need replacement but that can only be determined after the gaskets have been replaced and the engine problem is gone. i strongly advise that you change the engine oil after the repair as well to remove any contamination from there as well.
I'd drain the oil before even putting a wrench on the engine. If you find a large amount of coolant in the oil, you may already have destroyed the bearings on the crankshaft making any further repair useless.
If you find no coolant in there, leave the drain plug out so any coolant that gets in the pan during the repair drains out. Attach a warning note to the steering wheel so when you are finished, you don't forget and start the engine without oil in it!! (seen that done too many times to not mention it)

What causes oil to get in antifreeze

Driving the truck without a thermostat won't necessarily hurt the engine. It will take longer to get heat and it will be sporadic because the coolant is always circulating. Oil in antifreeze could come from 2 places, transmission cooler in rad if you have an automatic. The lines inside will occasionally start leaking. The other is from the engine, usually a head gasket leaking. My suspicion is that you have a leaking head gasket. This would explain the over heating with oil in the coolant. Take it in and get a pressure test on the rad or a compression test on the engine. This should confirm or eliminate the head gasket. Hope this helps.

Blown head gasket or not?

check oil dip stick for water/antifreeze and radiator for oil in antifreeze but usually alot of white smoke-steam from tailpipe usually indicates head gasket blue smoke means oil black smoke carbon

Started with head gasket problem, tried to flush system..

You more then likely have more then one issue. You can pull the plugs to see if the engine is hydra locked, It sounds like you lost power so check that the battery is still fully charged, check the connections at the battery, engine block, and starter. Sounds like something just got wet or it was a coincidence. I never suggest to anyone, the use of stop leak.
