Question about 2000 Nissan Sentra
When i was checking the level of coolant in the radiator, i saw just at the mouth of the radiator some oily cream and for sure it was oil mixed up with water. I suspected either engine or transmission oil could have been mixed up. I checked, the engine oil was okay but the gear-box oil had same milk-like substance. I have removed the radiator from the car but what then? I need help before i call the mechanics.
The transmission oil cooler is on the lower part of the radiator. it might have a hole inside. you need to replace the radiator and flush the transmission fluid several times

Sounds like you head gasket is blown. seen this alot out of that year model sentra. have you mechanic check coolant system under pressure with the spakk plugs out for coolant in middle two cylinders, that is the most common spot for head warpage. this may be a very slow leak so it will take time to so antifreeze in those cylinders.
Good luck with the dealers they are idiots.
