Hey Everyone!

I have a 2002 Buick Century 3.1L V6 with roughly 160K KM (Odometers broken). There is a brown slime-like substance in the coolant resivour (pictures in link below). Someone told me its a blown head gasket with oil leaking into it. Some have told me it's build up from the fluids building up and not being cleaned properly (I'm leaning to this one).

Any input would be great, thank you very much!

Nope, that's oil in the coolant. See if the car has an engine oil cooler. If so, that could be the problem. It could also be a cracked head or blown head gasket.
