It's common on these engines to develop hairline cracks at the camshaft journals. When the engine / cyl. head warms up the crack(s) will open allowing engine oil mix with coolant.
You can fix this problem by replacing the cylinder head assembly.
There is a TSB describing this problem. If you post an e-mail I'll look for it and send it to you.


most cracked blocks you cannot see the crack with your eye. the bottom line is you need a motor replacement.
