  1. I have a '88 Turbo (US specs) that has not been reaching operating temps the last couple of times I've had it out. According to various threads in the forum, replacing a stuck/bad thermostat was a reasonable place to start so I order a new one and installed it this evening. When I drained the coolant down to where I could R & R the thermostat (using air pressure to drain about a gallon of coolant out) I discovered oil in my coolant. Other than the obvious possibility of a bad head gasket or cracked head, are there other situations that would cause this scenario in this particular model.
