Just bought a ‘08 f250 199k miles with 6.4
Its been tuned and deleted. With fresh oil and full of coolant/water, can drive for about 30 minutes before it starts to over heat and have to add more water. Drain the oil and it’s milky. Mechanic said he drained the oil, left oil plug out, then topped off water and did pressure test, and water would come out oil pan.
He said my engine is shot and it’s probably a cracked block and that I needed new engine.
What could cause water to get into the oil this fast?

Water in oil will turn the oil into a chocolate milk shake

check for front cover erosion behind the water pump, providing you have no oil in the coolant. Stop driving it immediately until you fix this.

If I find any cavatation at all behind water pump, will that be the answer to the problem? In which case, I change it with a new cover.

Pull it apart and see what you find. It will be obvious.
