it's a blown head gasket man. a misfire and antifreeze leaking in and outside of the head are a sure sign that your head gasket is done for. You'll be able to save a lot of money if you do it yourself, but either way it won't be cheap. error code P1221 is an o2 sensor code on BMW which means you may have done some damage down stream as well. If you're not that handy enough to diagnose the whole thing i recommend towing it to a shop asap.

Na i can do it was n have been hoping it wasn't a head gasket. But also oil and antifreeze are clean of each other. Never thought of the o2 sensor going bad due to other so i guess i am ****ed thanx man.
Son and I greatly appreciate the help and effort.
Ps sorry i haven't researched before posting but I'm so stressed. 3mnth old just had open heart surgery and my boss decided to fire me for taking off 2 days to see and be with him. Rent phone insurance and now mechanical problems again i apologize

Entirely possible, but unlikely. You can test it, you know. DVOM, test between the outer contacts in the plug. Should be ~1200 ohms.
