well, it is not a major problem, you would basicly get contaminants into the combustion chamber.(oil,Antifreeze, blue smoke means oil burning, white smoke is burning antifreeze/coolant.) the problem comes when too much antifreeze gets in the combustion chamber and your engine locks up(hydrolock) it is not a pleasant thing to deal with. there are other problems that may come with this ,i would not recomend using the vehicle unless you really need to.
