So sorry to hear of this Problem, But You have either A head Gasket that has Acquired a Crack or A crack in the Engine Block somewhere between the Cylinders and an Oil port. this is what will cause Milky Oil in the Coolant reservoir/overflow tank, if the color is More Brown then it is Definitely engine Oil if it is Reddish then it is a trans coolant leak But since You say you replaced the Radiator then My money goes to and Engine Problem, You nee to See a Professional Mechanic shop to have the System Pressure Checked, And The Oil Dipstick checked, if You have Milky foam on that stick then You will have narrowed down the Problem

The antifreeze tank is held on by I believe two bolts on the side. It's pretty easy to remove,
Just unbolt, remove hose and do the reverse with your new one.
As far as a replacement, I'd junkyard or ebay one. Lot cheaper, quicker, and easier than trying to get an aftermarket one and modifying to fit.

Are your cooling fans working? that will definately be a problem if not working. if they are working shut car off and feel the radiator is it the same temp all over or is it hot in only top or one smaller area. if you do not have same temp feeling on all of radiator your radiator may be plugged.

Inside the coolant reserve tank there is a sensor for coolant level.
Over time,this sensor can get stick.
Inspect the coolant reserve tank for crack or leak.
Locate the coolant level switch/sensor and soak it in clean warm water.
Make sure it's free to move up and down the float path.
Top off the coolant tank with coolant only.

Sounds like you have an air;lock in your cooling system.Try placing a bleeder on the return hose to the heater core ........looks like a small tap
