If it heated up on you, chances are that you warped the cylinder head and now have a blown gasket. You don't give very much information, here.

Why is oil getting in antifreeze of your 87 b2000 causing thermostat to stickand engine overheat?

Oil/antifreeze mix is usually caused by head gasket leaks or valve cover gasket leaks.

Your car a 95 Camry overheated you changed the temp switch and thermostat when you put antifreeze in it it was fine but then the next day the antifreeze tank was empty no visable leaks either?

If you didn't get it warm after the work and then refill the tank - the system was probably closed when you filled it. It's possible once the thermostat opened (or just as the coolant leaked past), the fill you gave was used as it filled the system past that point.

How do you diagnose overheating problems on a eclipse?

First thing you should check is the antifreeze level. If that is fine, replace the thermostat. If it still over heats after the thermostat, then most likely you need to replace the waterpump. If your antifreeze is low, check for leaks, the radiator, hoses, heater core, and water pump. If the water pump is leaking, that is your problem, replace that and thermostat all in one.
