my experience cylinder head gasket or warped head, and sometimes very seldom but happens as well - hairline crack in the head.

i am not familiar with the other engines. mine is a 16v and it has an oil cooler right beside the radiator. are you sure it is oil? it might be ATF, leaking from the ATF cooler in the radiator. that is if you are driving an auto transmission.

regards,
ray

with or without an oil cooler, you have an oil leak somewhere in the engine that is going into your coolant line and they are not supposed to meet anywhere.
