What could be the reason for having oil residue on the radiator cap in my 1995 Ford Windstar?

Are you sure it is oil residue? If it is dark brown or reddish brown is is probably long life coolant residue. Typically coolant can be forced into oil from a failure of a sort, but not the other way around from what I have seen. Transmission coolers have been known to rupture inside the radiator allowing the two to mix. Your transmission fluid gets a stawberry milkshake look to it. But I don't recommend drinking it no matter good it looks. But this condition will wipe out a transmission if not caught early on.

There are several reasons that can cause your Ford Windstar to jump when you give it gas. The most common reason is a problem with the transmission. Check the transmission fluid and make sure it is at the full mark.

Since they run in parallel, there's no way that a heater core will cause a radiator to get hot.

Yes, ice is an extremely poor radiator/conductor of heat. It is also the reason why the marine life in antartica is not frozen.

Check coolant in Radiator!!! Radiator might be empty, fill it, it's probably the reason why your engine is overheated

There are plenty of ways a car can break down without the radiator being a part of the cause. As for the reason you'd see steam from a radiator, it would escape if there was a leak in the radiator or the hoses, or if the cap was opened. The contents in a radiator are very hot - hot enough to produce steam.

Lower radiator hoses in water cooled engines are return lines. The upper radiator hoses are feed lines of hot engine water to the radiator. The reason that lower hoses are cooler is that the radiator has allowed much of the water's heat to dissipate into the air. Thus, a lower radiator hose contains cooler water than other radiator and heater hose lines.

There is no reason why you can not do a urine test while you are on your period, but the issue is there should be no reason for you to need to do a urine test if you are having a period. If you are having a period, it is highly unlikely that you would be pregnant.
