Well there are very small trace amounts of oil in my radiator, what does tis mean is it shagged or just a minor thing..... also my car has been losing a lot of water through the radiator over flow, it dosent seem to be too hot so is it just the cap or what....... might give it a flush soon and see if it helps. its been siting for over a year and its oly been back on the road since august.

As noisy said, could be trans fluid, check that aswell and see if there are any traces of water in it, not overly common but it does happen.

The oil cooler component of the radiator has most likely corroded through and leaking through.

I'd be getting it replaced very soon ... before you kill your auto in the process. BTRs don't like coolant running through them ... hee hee.

I just didn't one on the ute ... the alloys tanks on the ends can corrode as well ... get a copper core radiator if you can ... will last longer.
