Hi there!
\015\012
\015\012This isn't going to be good news Im afraid. These symptoms are typical of head gasket failure.
\015\012
\015\012Head gaskets can fail on one of 3 ways -
\015\012 #1 Rupture to outside from cylinder - Lots of oil, steam, fire maybe - it's pretty obvious.
\015\012 #2 Rupture from cylinder into an oilway - You burn lots of oil, blue smoke, lack of power, oil forced out of fillercap, dipstick, air filter gets black.
\015\012 #3 Rupture from cylinder into coolant channel. You use water - but no leaks under car. White steamy exhaust on starting, Coolant overheats quickly and appears to boil. Inspection of coolant is sometimes oily.
\015\012
\015\012Yours sounds like #3
\015\012
\015\012It probably needs the cylinder head off and the gasket replaced. Quite a time consuming job, but DIY-able with the correct tools.
\015\012
\015\012You can check the compression of the cylinders first just to make sure it is this and not leaks somewhere else -
\015\012
\015\012Check out PetesPonies post on the mustang forum about leaks around the intake manifold. It may be easier to check this first.
