Question about Cars & Trucks
What you have is a really bad head gasket or a crack in the head/block. The cylinder head will have to come off to determine the exact issue.

wow sorry to hear that it sounds like the head gskt blew but im scratching my head on that one because that is not very comon for the engine in that car, But i would say head gskt since the oil pressure in the car runs way higher than the pressure in the cooling system so thats why it would have blown a hole in the radiator, and mixed in with the coolant, i would not say that the place that changed your oil is at fault they could not have caused that to happen

looks like you have done everything but the problem with your car is that the cylider head gasket has gone have a look at the dipstick or remove the oil filler cap if it looks like mayo then 100% head gasket has failed you said no water on the floor so it must have gone into engine only way this can happen is head gasket failing, if you have put lot of water in to the cooling system then your sump will be full of oil water mix.
let us know your findings so we can help you more if you need it

I recommend flushing the radiator thoroughly if not done recently. there seems to be some sort of blockage in the radiator at this time. if you get lots of metal fragments that are flushed out during this flush, i will then recommend a rebuild on the radiator or replacement of the radiator. make sure the cooling fans are cycling on time as well.
