    Sounds textbook to me for a blown head gasket.

    i 2nd on the blown head gasket.

    It depends on where the head gasket and how bad the gasket broke to cause water to mix with fuel or oil.


    Right now, it is very minor and the bubbles is causing an "air lock" in your coolant system which prevents it from transfering fluid to the radiator.
