Can you tell if it is engine oil or transmission? Does it have a red tint. Do you know if you have an oil cooler in the radiator? It might be leaking. If it has a red tint the transmission cooler might be leaking.

Oil in the radiator


oil in the radiator is from a failed transmission oil cooler that is in the radiator tank. You will also have water in the transmission oil as when you shut off the engine the coolant pressure may enter the oil lines through the crack in the cooler.

Remove timing cover and replace gasket. The pump is in the cover and I have seen gasket failure there that will cause oil in coolant. Your motor is a 3800.

2001 F-250 Super duty V-10 small amount of oil in radiator


oil in a radiator indicates that the transmission oil cooler in the radiator tank has failed and leaking transmission oil into the radiator
there are 2 possible fixes
fix one is a new radiator
fix 2 is to give the radiator oil cooler a miss altogether and opt foe an air cooler mounted in front of the radiator
the advantages here are that the radiator then has a bigger capacity to handle the engine heat as there is no hot transmission oil adding to the engine heat
the second advantage is that the transmission oil is being cooled to ambient temp and not engine temp which makes for longer transmission oil life
the disadvantage is that it cost a bit more than a radiator initially but the long term savings are real
oil to air oil coolers are available from auto transmission shops and quality auto spares shops
