    well i think if it is oil in the reservoir you will have coolant in your motor oil. Do you any milky looking residue when you pull the oil dipstick out? If the coolant is very old it could leave a film that stains the reservoir. If you remove the reservoir and dump the coolant out you can clean it.

    Can you take a pic of it?

    How long has it been since your last flush?

    +1. I would start by checking your oil and seeing what it looks like.

    It could also be power steering fluid from a leaky PS cooler in the upper rad hose

    Sounds like Dex-Cool sludge built up in the overflow tank. I think PAJeff02 did a writeup about cleaning out the overflow tank. I could be wrong though.
