Question about 1986 Toyota Pickup 4WD
When you put fluid into the radiator it goes straight into the oil pan
You have a MAJOR collant leak! This could be a badly blown head gasket,a cracked head,or a crack in one of the cylinder walls(not good).If it's leaking that fast,it shouldn't be too hard to find,but you're gonna have to take a lot apart to find it(unless you have one of those high-dollar fiber optic camera tools).Remember,water will go straight to the bottom of the oil pan(oil floats on water),so don't run the engine with water in the pan.(You WILL destroy every bearing surface in the engine,making a real good boat anchor out of it).

Testimonial: "thanks for the help"
Sounds like your timing chain cover has a hole worn through it caused by a loose timing chain. This allows water to pump straight into the engine while running. Before this occurred were you able to hear a clacking sound during deceleration? The culprit is a loose timing chain and if a hole has already worn through it and pumped coolant into the engine it may already be too late.

You probably have a head gasket problem. Hopefully it is not a cracked block. If it drains when the engine is not running, the problem is really bad. You should have the engine tested, but you could try this: Open the radiator cap and start it. After about 5-7 minutes of idling, if the water violently spits out at you, there is a water jacket breach somewhere. Be careful. (No, you cannot use radiator stop-leak on this problem. It won't work.) Good luck.
