Old coolant will gel up and look very similar to grease/oil
Do you have anything in overflow container?

BTW
I have never seen oil in the water
Its always the other way around, as water is under more pressure

Pressurize your rad and let it sit for a bit, and see if you lost any coolant
Also change your oil and coolant and see if the fluid in the rad looks the same as tranny fluid

If you pull the trany dipstick and its all cloudy and starting to turn pink more than red and clear you have a leak. I have never seen a factory internal cooler leaking. If it is than I would think that trany pan should come ASAP as any moisture in the trany is a bad idea....factory antifreeze is now red and as Matt says it will gel up and look like slime. Flush the coolant
and refill with Ford antifreeze and you should be good to go...
