    No not in the radiator - in the engine coolant tank. And the car is a manual transmission.

    If it is in the tank then it came from the radiator that is what the reservior is hooked to!! Unless someone put oil in the tank! Any coolant in the oil?? Should be.

    Just keep a check on it, i wouldn't replace ahything without confirmation of what's wrong, if anything! Oil level is the most important that it is not to full or low.
