Well he claims it has a blown head gasket, and that there is coolant in the oil, which to be points to a textbook intake manifold gasket failure...I realize the symptoms are the same, but they arent known for blowing head gaskets.

Right now one main concern is the fact its been sitting for 4+ months with coolant in the oil, do you guys think the internals are garbage?

Im just worried that if I spend 2-300 to buy and then another 1-150 to get it running right. Thats it gonna blow right after that.
I wouldn't touch it with a 10ft pole, unless you are prepared to buy a new motor in the future
