You need to flush your cooling system very well...this includes removal of the block drain plug, res plug, rad plug.

I would have a COMPLETE coolant flush (pressurzied and all that good stuff). You might have to do this a few times to get rid of all the old coolant, but it's worth it.

Also, your oil looks fine, so your head gasket is probably OK. Just start off with a few good coolant flushes (with OEM anti-freeze), and see what happends. Good Luck,
