Question about Cars & Trucks
There is oil already in the engine oil pan and lubrication system and apart from some condensation there should be no water. The only place water can come from in any quantity is from the cooling system and although cracks and leaky water heated inlet manifolds and gaskets can be the cause the most common source of coolant ingress is the cylinder head gasket.
A failing head gasket doesn't very often mean there will be oil in the coolant.

SOURCE: water/oil mixing in 22r engine
yes it can mix, also check the timing cover for rubs from the timing chain. this is the common problem with 22r. many mechanics will tell you its the block but they are just trying to make money.

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

Just went through the whole process changed the head gasket and still got oil - thanks to guys on the forum that said there is no other way besides the head gasket, went to an audi mechanic and he just laughed, he said 99% of the time it is the oil cooler. He was right.
