I would have to guess that your radiator has a hole in it. Look andd see if your transmission lines go to a tank on the radiator. If this is the case then the radiator will have to be replaced. You transmission line is leaking oil into the coolant. Is there also coolant in the transmission? This is the only way that I can see this happening. Now if you were just having coolant in the transmission then I would say that there was a head gasket issue. well I hope this helps you.

Why is your water pump still leaking in your 2001 Chevy S 10 blazer?

Assuming you have replaced the water pump and you still have a coolant leak up front, I would suspect the lower intake manifold gaskets are the source of the leak. This is not uncommon, the replacement gaskets are of different design to prevent that from happening again.
