Oil mixing with water


Then where are you seeing the oil mixing with the water? If it is in the radiator, and you have an automatic transmission, check to see if the transmission oil cooler is internal to the radiator. This can crack and leak into the coolant. Unfortunately, if that happens, coolant will also get into the transmission and damage it.

Oil in the radiator overflow reservoir


If it is engine oil, you could have a leaking head gasket or intake gasket. If its trans fluid, you could have a leak inside the radiator.

How would i know if my overheating problem in my 97 Geo Metro Prizm is a radiator, water pump, blown head gasket, cracked head or a thermostat problem. is there some way i can check for this?


Oil and coolant mixed usually means the engine is damaged.
Blown head gasket, or cracked block - head.
You may have coolant in the engine oil too.
I would not drive it.

Antifreeze looks almost black in color is thisnormal.


No this is not normal, Sounds like you may be getting a little oil mixed with the water flow. I would have this checked out because you may have a crack within the engine allowing oil to mix with your coolant system.

your radiator has another little radiator inside the main radiator this is called transmission cooler seems to be than the cooler has a hole or is broken the main reason for this to happend is becasue the antifreeze or coolant is not been serviced at least every 50k miles or when you mix wo diferent coolants like diferent colors they get contaminated and create acids and start corrosion in the coolant system have the radiator replaced and flush the cooling system wiht lost of water then add only the designated antifreeze on greeen coolant 50/50 mix they sell it allready mix but if you but the one is not mix mix it with 50/50 coolant and destilated water but i recomend to buy 50/50/ green coolant
