You have a very major leak if water is in the oil.... Water in the oil can mean the end of an engine if you don't fix it immediately. It could be either. You may have to remove the head and intake. You will also have to drain the oil and coolant. You will also have to complacently flush the oil to try to get the water out.

All they have to do is check the compression of each cylinder. Still it is gonna be expensive to fix.

Happy to hear your truck is fixed. You should try to do a write up on it.
