it is probably not gearbox oil. it is probably transmission fluid because it travels through the radiator cooling tanks. the cooling tanks may have a leak causeing the fluids to leak into the radiator.
If the leak is a hose, not a big deal. Drain antifreeze disconnect hose, instal new hose, refill antifreeze. If the leak is a water pump also not a big deal, same procedure. If the leak is in the radiator, a bit more complicated. Radiator can be replaced or repaired by a radiator shop. If leak is coming from somewhere else on the engine, could be more serious, like a gasket leak. If this happened you would get fluids mixing ( oil/gas) Good luck. A Haynes manual is a good investment for your car.
The leak can be repaired, it is probably the sealant has dried and cracked.
A plumber can fix this, so can a mechanic, so can a gas engineer or experienced electrician.
Phone round your local businesses to see who will do the job cheapest.
Tell them the heater is leaking from the seal between the radiator body and the thermostat where it screws in - you just think in needs fresh sealant.
Shouldn't be expensive, its a 20minute job, unscrew the thermostat, clean up the threads, dab on the sealant and screw it back together.
you've either got low engine oil, or the sensor has gone bad, or you have a leak somewhere. The leak may not be visible if it's leaking into another part of your engine or into the transmission via the rear engine seal
unfortunatly its probably an internal leak and the motor is burning the oil.this could br caused by leaking valve seals,bad rings or more likely bad turbo seals.add some lucas oil conditioner and see if that helps.to check the turbo pull the tube going from it to the inter cooler and look for oil. due the same on the exhaust side
there is a seal on t hr breather box that could be leaking if there is oil across the oil pan if it is only on underside of car then the turbo return is leaking that is most common probably 10 dollars for gasket and seal and easy to change
