2012 Ford Focus SEL oil and gas mixing?

Asked by Desirra May 24, 2020 at 12:18 AM about the 2012 Ford Focus SEL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Checked my oil and noticed there is gasoline
mixing with my engine oil. My coolant has
been leaking as well. Anyone happen to know
what is wrong so I can just fix instead of
paying an arm and leg to have it fixed

More likely the head gasket. If the engine's ever overheated, the head could be damaged.

Gasoline in engine oil could be a head gasket problem, or it could be an intake gasket problem. Leaking coolant could be part of a head gasket problem, but's more likely a leak somewhere in the coolant system, like a broken water pump radiator or hose. Finding these problems is what mechanics do and if you don't have those mechanical skills, you're likely to miss something in your repairs.
