    I came to the conclusion that its my fuel ejectors as well its leaking internally into the intake down into cylinder walls down through the crankshaft into the oil pan. The fuel can only run down and it goes into the oil pan the only way to detect the problem is to do a diagnostic cheak fuel pressure cheak. As to my piston rings I cant see it being my piston rings because I’m not getting blow by of oil or gas coating my spark plugs when I start my engine it runs fine no blue smoke or engine running intermitting.

I have GE13 engine .this engine coolant mix to engine oil

drain the oil right away your head gasket needs to be replaced. If you leave the mixed oil and antifreeze in the oil pan you will damage the crank and bearings at this point as long as you didn't over heat it to much you will be able to replace the head gasket and be on your way

Engine oil mixing into coolant

The only place, oil and water share a gasket is the cylinder head gasket, oil and water galleries run through the engine block and head via the head gasket. The cylinder pressure will be OK, it's the oil pressure that's putting the oil in the coolant, the gasket has gone between the water and oil galleries or there is an internal crack (unlikely). A coolant pressure test should show it up.

Toyota forklift mixing water in the oil already change head gasket

did you have the head checked for cracks/leaks while it was off? it can only be head gasket, cracked head or cracked block that allows the engine oil to mix with the coolant. you could also see if combustion gas is in the coolant (should never be)

Water and oil mixes together

Check oil by draining. Trans tank on radiator bottom may be oily slick you see if oil pan drained clean. Then trans is probably contaminated with antifreeze and that's what is mixing.

Crack in head passages could link oil and water, if you verify antifreeze and oil mixed in oil pan.

Actully i think if there is leakage in head gasket oil should come out from it rite?

if there is a leak in the valve cover oil would leak out . if there is a leak in head gasket could mix coolant and oil no leak out the mix would be in crank case, or pressure would build up in radiator whit no mix whatsoever. is this helping? if so please check the corner of this box if you need more info let me know exactly what the matter is i'll be glad to help.
