1= if oil is in the coolant reservoir,you will need to replace the radiator because the transmission cooler has burst somewhere and leaked into the radiator and the transmission will need to be flushed also.2= if antifreeze is in the oil you either have a blown head gasket or intake manifold gasket on the engine itself and the bad gasket will need to be replaced.get several opinions before you go spending money on this.call around and see what different shops say about your problem.there are 2 different problems listed above.i think the first one applys to what you ask.oil in reservoir or coolant tank.let me know what you find out.
