There is probably already a post for this but I can't find it.

Anyway, About a month ago I had my engine swapped with a donor that had 78K, previous had over 145 and timing went. Easier to swap than fix. So since then it has steadily been leaking oil and looks like it comes anywhere from the turbo all the way down the oil pan. But it drips from the oil filter and around that area, not directly under the turbo. Checked and could tighten the oil filter a little so I did. It does leak onto the exhaust and smells when it does. Yesterday I was looking under the hood, as I am having the famous alarm battery issues as well, and saw that my coolant was black....looked inside and its nothing but black and has some white milky goo stuck to the cap. Drove home from work and checked, it seemed to have split the coolant and oil because the top 1/4 only was black and the rest was coolant green. Would a simple flush clear it up since the engine was sitting for who knows how long or am I now looking at some kind of gasket issue?
