Assuming you mean the coolant overflow. First, have you added any "water pump lubricant"? If so, it is an oil emulsion and may have separated from the water. If you're certain that it's engine oil getting into the coolant, first have the heads re-torqued. You might be able to get by without any serious repairs if you can just do that. Using a radiator stop-leak won't work since the pressure into the radiator would be greater than the pressure generated by the hot coolant, so the stop-leak won't work. Stop leak only works when the fine particles of metal try to exit through a leak and get stuck along the edges, build up and create a blockage. That can't happen if you're leaking oil into the coolant.

I would have to say a complete radiator/block flush. Tranny flush. Tranny filter and pan gasket replaced. Oil CHANGE. Brake system flush. Check brakes. Tune up. Lube of all bushings including body bushings. have your suspension checked. Tires checked for wear. Oh. Check the motor mounts. Think that's about all I can think of. This is more like a 100k check but it won't hurt.
