Sounds like you have transmission fluid in the antifreeze. The transmission cooler might be leaking in the radiator. If it is, replace the radiator.

it means that there is no hole in the head gasket to allow the oil to get to the rocker gear. That means that either you have placed the gasket on the wrong way round or the gasket you have is not exactly right for your engine. Simple check is to remove the cam shaft and see how far a piece of wire can be pushed down the oil hole .

wow no year ! 1967 to now. wow2
or engine size or type or gas or diesel.
no engine stated.
great question, engine mileage is? 100k 500k miles?????
other shoe drops is this engine been dismantled?
well, is oil pressure at spec. at block gallery ? y/n
if yes, then the head gasket put on upside down?
or if not that, the head oriface is blacked.
or if gallery pressure is low , the pump pickup clogged or 0ring bad sucking air in to oil pump?
we i rebuild and engine (100%)
i do top end oiling tests, using just my starter and no fuel.
if that fails, the means I failed, as can , and old engine
1: top end fail, to oil, , is pressure at spec>?
2: is head gasket on right, (i buy felpro, that is marked UP)
3: is pump primed,(no gallery sender pressure)
4: is screen clean, and all seals, good on pump and oil pickup path?
5: if pressure is good, is the head orifice clear. the heads on engines have an oil resticter, that keeps main bearing from BURNING if cam shaft does a HARD FAILURE>
