SOURCE: Oil in over coolant tank
since you are running green coolant in a car designed for dexcool that may have contributed to a leaky intake gasket and/or head gasket. dexcool was specially formulated to run in the GM vehicles because the gaskets and seals can be easily distorted when the wrong chemicals are soaking them. oil in the coolant is usually either a head gasket or the lower intake manifold leaking into the cooling system. also if the intake gaskets werent done properly that would cause oil in the coolant as well. i suggest you take your car to a reputable shop and have it tested for a headgasket leak and to have the lower intake inspected.

SOURCE: vortex v6 intake gasket ?
HI you could do a oil pressure test whit a gauge or yest replace your oil pressure sending unite if engine is not making tapping sound when pressure reads low it may be a bad pressure switch.now the coolant problem may be bad intake gaskets look at 4 corners of intake for sign of coolant if you see it outside its probably getting inside your lifter valley.Hope this helps

next step is to remove the intake, you are on the right track, worse i ever found was a cracke block, but that was in a 61 t-bird which was repaired with jb weld ten yrs ago and still holding, but the intake gasket sounds right
