Blown Head Gasket. A Leak Check and compression tests are in order.

its not always in the head gasket. its actually the intake manifold gasket leaking to then in return the coolent is being mixed in with the oil.

I forgot about that. It does happen to the 2.9L You could pressurize the cooling system and see if the oil level rises.
