NO NO NO you can i guess but it will ruin your engine. You either have a cracked block or blown head gasket i would guess. Moisture in the engine will destroy it. In addition to a headgasket or cracked block (unlikely), would be cracked cylinder head, intake manifold gasket or manifold. What kind of car, what size engine? 1999 Cadillac DEVILLE

If there is motor oil in the antifreeze reservoir there is a good chance there is also antifreeze in the motor oil. This condition is probably the result of a bad head gasket or a cracked head.
