Question about Cars & Trucks
You probably have a leaky gasket somewhere in the engine although I'm not sure which one it would be the oil is getting in the antifreeze when the antifreeze is pumped through the engine though so follow the radiator hoses to the engine and try to follow its path through the engine I would recommend replacing all the gaskets in that area.

if this is dexcool antifreeze and it has never been flushed after time it will gum up and turn brown if this is the case have your coolant system power flushed I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS WORK FOR MANY YEARS AND HAVE YET TO SEE A 3.8 MOTOR HAVE A CRACKED BLOCK!

Everyone automatically assumes that oil and water mixing means a blown head gasket or cracked engine block. Of course common sense is usually not that common. Oil in coolant is a different problem than coolant in oil. The former is a low pressure leak, and could indicate only an intake manifold gasket. It could also be an early or small head gasket leak. Coolant in oil is usually a cracked block or torn head gasket, and has concomitant symptoms of white exhaust smoke and milky oil on dipstick. If you replace the head gasket and the problem persists, an intake gasket could have fixed the problem.

your radiator has a pecock on the bottom of it screw it out then you can run water through a hose behind it once it stops draining to get any residue out as far as the engine youll never truly get all of the old coolant out without tearing it down and putting it back together so flushing the radiator is just fine.
