yeh its turbo

ok i was gonna give you a tempoary fix if it was non turbo but since its turbo you better start pulling off the head!

points more towards a cracked head than just the gasket...
it will be crack tested when you send it in to get recon'd.

oil turning white also ?

Things like a cylinder compression test and checking for white exhaust smoke can also help diagnose. As well as a chemical test of the radiator water. Id be inclined to do that before taking heads off.

Another thing to be aware of is in some cars the transmission oil cooler forms part of the radiator and uses the water in the radiator to cool the transmission oil. If there is any corrosion in these parts your transmission oil will end up in your radiator and water in your transmission etc. recently happened to a friend, had to replace transmission. Bad design imo.

is the car auto or manual as the auto cooling is in the bottom of the radiator in most auto cars so check your auto fluid
