That's not good. How is it running? Is there any antifreeze in the oil?

Oil in the radiator isn't necessarily a death sentence. It's possible that there is a bad seal somewhere. Keep me informed.

Are you sure it's engine oil? If it's an automatic it may be transmission fluid! There's a transmission fluid cooler in the right tank of your radiator. Check the transmission fluid level. Look for coolant on the dipstick. HTH. - Jim
