Just a guess, have you used Redline Water Wetter recently?

Sometimes it can separate from the coolant and it looks like oil. In fact, it looks like a ruptured head gasket.

Yes, if your head gasket is gone, you should see some puffy white smoke from the tailpipe, and driving will noticably lower the level of your coolant.

Or, it could just be very dirty. Flush it, refill with clean fluid, and see what happens.

If the coolent has sat there for a while , this brown gooey crap builds up on the bottom. Looks like freakin algae or something. Thats normal, just flush out your system and refill it up. I wouldnt worry.
If the stuff was black or had that oily look, then I would worry.

Thought so
I freaked when I saw that in my coolant bottle. I flushed out the rad fluid twice and ran it for a while before I figured out the "problem".
