ok so my car would not start no sound. replaced fuses for starter and oil sensor was fine and everything was functioning fine. I was driving and the car randomly shut off no weird sounds nothing. the message screen said low oil pressure but the oil pump is indeed good. I checked my oil and found this. radiator is new and has all new hoses. also isn't spittin out codes. everything was checked a week ago and everything was clean and functional, was running smooth but after that I checked to see the oil and check the radiator and this was in both a weird brown sludge, the oil was replaces 3 weeks ago at best. What is going on?

    I've seen that in cars that have the PVC system clogged.

    Mixing of incompatible coolants can cause the additives to “drop out” of the solution and form radiator sludge or slime. Contaminated coolant: A bad head gasket or cracked cylinder head can allow oil and coolant to mix, resulting in sludge.

    The head gasket broken and the coolant in oil. What is in the cooling system?
