Oil in coolant reservoir


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,  hope this is the right place to post...not done this before.

So I have a mk2 focus 1.6 petrol and it's been loosing coolant. Booked it in for a pressure test and could not find a leak. Yesterday went to check the level and the coolant reservoir has filled with a thick brown liquid, I assume I have oil in my coolant? 

Now before I take it to the dealership and get raped, can someone help me with what the problem could be? My first thought was head gasket but there's no evidence of water on the oil cap. My mechanical knowledge is very limited.
