Question about 1996 Toyota Celica
Double check coolant to make sure you don't have oil floating on top. It's either an exterior leak, which would mean head gasket or valve cover gasket or it's an internal leak which would also mean head gasket. It it was burning that much oil in that a time, it would run poorly and you'd most likely get a check engine light.

When you say "warning light is on", I assume you are not talking about the oil pressure gauge...
If not, here is your solution:
What you have is a very common problem: The oil LEVEL sensor has failed. Previas have 2 sensors; pressure & level of the oil in the pan...What you need to do is replace it, Toyota part number : 89491-28030.
BUT...This part is $380.45. Not cheap; Sorry but true.

i think its going to be the head gasket duto the way its leaking coolant. one of the water jackets maybe i would have it checked to be sure but it sounds like head gasket

if theres alot of back pressure out of the radiator its definatly a head gasket..rev it up to see,,,if not then it could just be thermostat,,,,

SOURCE: Some kind of oil in coolant
Drain all the coolant reverse flush the cooling system refill with antifreeze drive the car a few days check the radiator if it looks bad again your oil cooler in the radiator is leaking replace the radiator unless the head is warped or, the gasket was installed wrong (you would have a rough running car) the gasket should not be the problem however a garage can do a compression test to be sure
