Classic Phase I head gasket failure symptoms. As mentioned, look for bubbles in the coolant expansion tank. The "oil" is a residue from exhaust gases pushing out thru the coolant.
Should I tell him or you? Dude, join the club, you most likely have a leaky headgasket. Bite the bullet, change the water pump, timing belt, head gasket, thermostat and drive on for another 100k.
