my buddy just bought a used 90 pickup truck
he got it with 198K miles
He had to replace the head gasket and have it machined

Check the dipstick, it will be clean oil usually. If it is milky, or foamy, you have coolant/water in the oil... head gasket. Hence the "milkshaked" motor.. Also, white smoke from exhaust, kind of billowy, like a cloud, not dark like burning oil.
