this sounds more or less like a head gasket problem. cus if u have a bad head gasket u typically start burning antifreeze but i could see oil mixing with it too. i'd see if u burn kind of sweet smell out of the exhaust also see if ur engine gets hot or white smoke out of the exhaust too.

A PCV valve wouldn't cause that. Is the engine DOHC or OHV? Your saying you have oil in your coolant reservoir? Is the oil in the engine a whitish color?
