Question Early 99 Coolant in oil, 390k miles, doesn't run. Where to start?

There is a good chance I may be picking up an early 99 6 speed for cheap in the near future. 389k miles. In the description it says "wont start due to a sensor that went bad from coolant". I talked to him and he said it was spitting and sputtering for a few days then shut off and would not start back up. He thinks its a head gasket and not an oil cooler. Unfortunately it is a high mileage truck that has a tuner. I know how to work on these trucks, so im not too hesitant to take it. Any suggestions??

I wonder how many hours a shop would charge if I pulled the heads and gave them the heads, had them checked, decked, and new cups put in. But wouldn't bad injector cups cause fuel in oil, rather than coolant in oil?

i don't think injector sleeves will let coolant into the oil. you'll get fuel in the coolant and you could get oil in the coolant....

expect the worst. he said it sputtered for a few days and then shut off. he's not going to tell you that he severely overheated it or that he let if hydrolock and broke/bent a connecting rod.

make sure you get it cheap enough that you could get your money back parting it out. a 4wd 6spd is worth some good money and there is money in all of the parts needed for someone to do a 4wd conversion on their truck. it looks like it would probably have a manual transfer case too.

that truck in running condition around here would be about $3,000 around here.... i would say $1500 or less would be reasonable for that one.
