Driving the truck without a thermostat won't necessarily hurt the engine. It will take longer to get heat and it will be sporadic because the coolant is always circulating. Oil in antifreeze could come from 2 places, transmission cooler in rad if you have an automatic. The lines inside will occasionally start leaking. The other is from the engine, usually a head gasket leaking. My suspicion is that you have a leaking head gasket. This would explain the over heating with oil in the coolant. Take it in and get a pressure test on the rad or a compression test on the engine. This should confirm or eliminate the head gasket. Hope this helps.

It requires a tool that attaches to the computer connector above the driver's left shin.
There are instructions on the web for making home-made oil light reset tools, but you are dealing with very expensive electronics in that car. I cannot recommend that you try making your own tool.
If you are interested in doing some of your own maintenance and repair, you might consider buying a scanning tool that will reset the oil and inspection timers. Peake is the most popular brand among BMW owners. Just make sure that it says that it will work on a 2005 model car.
