Answers :

This is the classic indicator for a blown head gasket. Continuing to drive the car with water in the oil will result in the destruction of the engine. The water gets whipped up in the oil, causing a loss of lubrication to the remainder of the engine. Your best bet would be to have a local, competent mechanic evaluate the engine, and go from there. If you are mechanically minded, you should be able to make the gasket replacement repair yourself. Its a good idea to purchase a manual on your vehicle (~$20) from the local auto parts store. Label items as they are removed, and/or take pictures to make re-assembly easier. Good luck, and best regards.
