Found oil in my coolent expansion tank

Generally speaking, if you have engine oil in the cooling system, you have a leak somewhere in the engine, which could be a head gasket.
Is there any sign of coolant in the engine oil ?

It appears that I have a leaking/blown head gasket on my 1993 Town Car. There is coolent in the oil. I haven't had a chance to do a compression test. With the 4.6, is this the most likely source of the...

don't run the engine with coolant in the oil the sugar content in most anti freexes will crystalize the rod and main bearings causing severe internal damage to the crankshaft! pull the spark plugs one at a time! to see which one has water on them and then remove the cylinderhead on that side and replace the head gasket and check for a crack around the exhaust valves but tis better when you tear a engine down! too! replace both!! head gaskets!

Check for coolant in the oil. The oil will look like chocolate milk. After it's sat overnight you can also try loosening your oil drain plug until fluid comes out. See if it looks like chocolate milk or is just straight coolant. Check your spark plugs. Pull them out of the cylinder head and check for white corrosion or actual coolant in chambers or threads. You can also do a block test (rent the block tester at Autozone for $25.00- return when you're done and you get the $25.00 back) the block test fluid is $8.99. Follow the directions and if your test fluid turns green or yellow you have combustion/emission gases in the coolant. This can be caused by a cracked block/ cylinder head/ blown head gasket. You can also disconnect one head's spark plugs and test that cylinder then the other to see if only one is causing the problem. Hope this helps. If you're losing coolant, it's probably not your water pump. A lot of times if a head gasket fails, the head (usually made from Aluminum) will crack or warp.
