How bad is it pressurizing the radiator?
2 thoughts, head gasket or oil cooler
Is it engine oil? Manual or auto?
Take the radiator cap of and run it and see if it is bubbling
Sorry for the not so thoughts

I concure with the prior post, it is either a blown head gasket, or a bad in-block oil cooler.
Most LIKELY the oil cooler.
Since the oil pump pushes more pressure than the cooling system can ever hold, if the oil cooler corrodes, or an 'O' ring on the cooler goes bad, it fills the cooling system with oil.
Interesting enough, sometimes if the cooling system is full, it limits the amount of oil in the system, BUT the system will be full to the top, with oil usually sitting at the higher points.
Sometimes it'll affect heater cores and other components, sometimes not.
It just depends on how low the coolant in it was prior to the leakage and how severe the leak is.
