need help

I searched everywhere, but can't find help. I have a 1996 328I and it has antifreeze getting inside my block and it has atleast 2 plugs not firing. Is there any other suggestions as to what may be causing this. I took it to the dealer and they want to charge me 1000 dollars just to see what's worng. If there is anyone selling a block for this car or can help please do thank you all.

This sounds like either a cracked head, warped head or blown head gasket.

Be careful about this issue, if you get enough coolant into a cylinder it will do more damage. I am with JB, warped or cracked head, or gasket.
Check around you local wreckers and see what they have, or check Ebay. Good luck
