You've blown a head gasket. Did you shut it off immediately when it overheated?

:confused how did that happen.....
Could have been many things. Not a uncommon occurrence. Best case is just a garden variety gasket failure. Not so best cases would be a slipped liner or cracked block. But based on how quickly it happened, I'm betting on the gasket failure. My son's 1994 Honda Civic with only 80k miles blew a head gasket in EXACTLY the same way you described. When I pulled the head, the gasket was basically dissolving.
