if he means antifreeze is getting in the oil you could have a bad head gasket or even a cracked block not good either way

Ford vehicles come from the factory with 50 / 50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water Ford says minimum 40 % antifreeze and maximum 60 % antifreeze for proper engine protection

yes -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- You can in an emergency , but it's best to use a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and preferably distilled water to provide freeze , boil , and corrosion protection for the engine cooling system . The corrosion protection " portion " of the antifreeze does " wear out " so change the antifreeze mixture as recommended ( Ford says to not exceed 60 % antifreeze in the mixture )

no ( in an emergency you can use straight , preferably distilled water ) but for the engine cooling system the best protection for corrosion , boiling or freezing is a 50 / 50 mix of antifreeze and preferably distilled water . The corrosion protection " portion " of the antifreeze does " wear out " so change the coolant mixture as recommended , also Ford says not to exceed 60 % antifreeze in the mixture

I have a 91 Ford escort that has two caps. one is on the radiator itself and one next to it that says coolant only. how do I know where the antifreeze goes? does a mixture of coolant and water go in the radiator or does only water go in radiator and coolant in the other one? I have never seen an engine with this. could you help explain it?

The antifreeze change and flush interval is changed from what the owners manual says, Usually every 5 years.The interval is now 2 years.
