This is caused by a leaking head gasket. When a head gasket leaks you can get oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil of the engine or both. You will need to pull the cylinder head off, have it checked for cracks and if none are found have it machined flat again and replace the head gasket. Use only a quality head gasket set either from the Toyota dealer or a well known quality brand like Fel-Pro (available from NAPA and others). This is a job that requires some special tools and a great deal of car repair knowledge, time to do the job is about 6 hours.
Valve cover gasket
can,crank and oil pump seals.
rear main seal
oil pan gasket
Transmission oil leaks
Vents, dipstick,torque converter ( need to examine shell to pin point whether its the oil pump or a converter seal)transmission gasket,axle seals, drain plug.
Could be a blown Head gasket or cracked head. Should be a drain at the bottom of the radiator I think on the drivers side. You will need to pull the heads off and have them checked Magnifluxed for cracks. If they find none then install new head gaskets and see what happens. I have the torque specs for your head bolts if you need them. Let me know.
have coolant system pressure test.what they do is pressurize your coolant.about 14 psi look in radiator for bubbles if so you have head gasket leak. or they drain oil out leave drain plug out to see if coolant come out crank case.that also means leaking head gasket or intake gasket.they will look for leaks around radiator +all hoses.look at water pump gasket weep hole.for leaks also check engine core plugs for leaks.they will make sure you have 50% coolant and 50% water .if you have too much water.it will evaporate away.
problem could be heads bolts . i put new bolts in put a little sealer on them . make sure your bolt holes is clean free from debris. put a lillte sealer on intake gasket on top and bottom where coolants travel. if all was done . drain engine oil in clean container .set it aside. take radiator cap off .you a coolant pressure rise kit .put a pan under oil pan with drain plug still off .pressure your radiator about 10 psi. make sure you have antifreeze in radiator and engine . when you pressure up to 10 psi look under the car if coolant comes out oil pan. you got leaking head gasket. if not .put oil pan plug back on . put oil back in car . check your freeze plugs also.
