My oldsmobile 1988 2.8l,v6 engine has a problem of oil mixing to
If you are getting oil in the radiator and coolant fill bottle, you most likely have a blown head gasket or blown intake manifold gasket. On the 2.8, there are a few other places where oil and water passages are near enough to each other for there to be a mixing of the two incompatible fluids, such as the pre-heat valve on the intake manifold, around the valley pan, etc.
If you are not comfortable with tearing into the engine to find which it is, find a good mechanic in your area. Actually, although most new car dealerships are questionable in the sales office, their repair shops are usually extremely good and reasonable in price, as compared to any other repair facility.
