Possible blown head gasket

Coolant in the oil could equate to a blown headgasket, warped or cracked head, or even human error (someone poured some coolant into the oil reservoir. I would not complete the purchase until a qualified mechanic (impartial) makes the determination.

thanks for the reply had my mechanic take a look and lucky for me it seems like everything is fine. did a oil and coolant change found nothing than repeated after about 600 mi. nothing seems wrong other than a couple of small problems from lack of upkeep. thank for the reply

Good to Hear

Piece of mind is worth a lot. I hope that you enjoy your Falco as much as I do mine.
