Unhappy Need Help!!!

Head gasket(s) just went on my 6.0 while getting on freeway. Oil and coolant oozing nicely out of overflow tank. Looking for mechanic/technician in San Diego that can repair soon. Please email me at xceslimitd@mac.com if you can help or know someone that can help. I would assume the truck is not safe to drive for an extended period of time. Is this correct?? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Just cause you have oil in your cooling system, does not mean you have a head gasket concern. It means your oil cooler has failed and is pumping oil in the cooling system and over filling it.

So I've been told...

Either way, it's still not fun or cheap. Is there an aftermarket/performance cooler anyone can recommend or should I stick with the Ford parts?? It's sitting at Ford now and should hear something in next day or two.
