2000 Nissan Maxima GLE 6Cyl3.0L - Engine
What causes coolant to be mixed with oil?
It just started overheating. Oil was full, coolant was full. Put a gallon & half of coolant in it & couldn't make it 5 miles without overheating. Checking the oil, there's coolant in the oil & engine. I've heard head gasket, maybe?

    You should perform a compression test to determine the condition of your engine.
