    I'd check the auto box too incase it's that that's mixed with the water and not engine oil.

    If theres oil in the water expansion tank - looks like chocolate mousse type muck -then its the oil cooler failure, often wrongly diagnosed as head gasket failure. Its a 3-4 hr job to fix but will need the pipes flushed alot as the oil will break them down and they may fail later
