Blown head gasket or cracked head. Common on the Quad 4. Not supposed to be like that.

If the car is in good shape, repair it, but at this point, pitch it for something better. The Quad 4 will continue to wring you for green and be a troublesome engine. I'd bail out now for something better .

It looks like a bad head gasket allowing the antifreeze to leak into the oil. You should also notice a "mysterious" antifreeze dissapearing act.

You can also test if there is anti-freeze in the oil by tasting the oil. No joke! Put a very small amount on a fingertip and taste it. If it is sweet tasting, you have anti-freeze in the oil.
