Question about 1997 Chevrolet Venture
Smoke coming from back of the engine, open the radiator it was full of red rusty oil.
The GM orange antifreeze eats away at the hoses causing that oily sludge, first thing I would do is have the cooling system flushed, that sludge will clog up the waterpump ports and tubes in the radiator..could cause motor failer

Are you sure its oil in the antifreeze? oil is brown. your van should have dexcool wich is orange, not green.(looks red sometimes)check the coolant again and check the oil. if it looks milky or foamy, there is coolant in it. sounds like it may be a blown head gasket. not good. stop driving it if you want to save your engine. you need to replace the head gasket/s, and flush the cooling system.
