Usually, the reason for oil in the cooling system is because of a blown head gasket or a leak in the radiator where the transmission cooling line passes thru. Brown milk is engine oil, pink is trans fluid if the car is an automatic shift.

Not pulling coolant into radiator


I assume you mean that it is not pulling coolant from the overflow back into the radiator when it cools down? This will either be a blocked overflow tube, or a malfunctioning radiator cap. Pull out the overflow tube and blow through it to clean it. Replace the radiator cap.

Check for milky oil
It may help to have the radiator cleaned and flushed, and a new thermostat installed, the coolant may be going out the overflow
Not certain how it ruins radiator caps, they hold about 5psi in the radiatior and let excess pressure into the overflow, then when the engine cools, allow coolant to s uck back form the overflow tank

Cracked Cylinder head or cylinder head gasket blown. Bet you filled it up with cold water when it was hot! Check your oil level, see if it is going up (water getting in) Remove the rad cap start your engine and if it blows the water out then i'm probably right.

A compression test would be the next best thing because if you are sure that it is engine oil in your antifreeze then it could be a head gasket, but it you don't get a bad reading from the compression test then it might be a intake gasket

Oil filter in civic 97


If you go to a reputable motor factor,
you can only be sold the correct filter for the civic.
As there are soo many variables in engine type, it's almost impossible to tell, oil volume, or which type filter.
However, I will say, be sure that you don't mix semi-synthetic oil, and mineral oil.
Oil changes should be undertaken every 30,000 miles, (unless under extra work load, (in which case, slightly more regularly))

Otherwise, 10/40 or 15/40 grade oil, is perfectly fine.
The trick to not overfilling the oil, is simply just to take your time, clean the dip stick and retry, until you have the correct reading.

Please don't forget to rate:)
