Good morning,

This is an indication of oil mixing with coolant from a possible head gasket failure.

At this point, it would not be worth repairing the engine as the coolant mix damages the bearings in the motor as well.

It would be best to replace the engine with either a used or rebuilt engine.

I attached a you tube video with coolant in the oil.

I also attached a picture of the location of the head gaskets for you.

I included the procedure from youtube as well for your engine.
