Harvey's Autohaus If Atf was found in the coolant & Vice versa then yea, The radiator was bad. If engine oil is found in the coolant, than the oil cooler, located in between the cylinder heads is Leaking internaly into the coolant. or a head gasket issue, but oil in the coolant of any Opel derived 2.5/3.0 is ussually always the oil cooler.

Changing your radiator (unless there was CLEARLY something drastically wrong with it, like it had a hole and leaked all of your coolant) would do nothing. You had something happen where coolant and oil are both present.

Head gasket
Turbocharger
MAYBE radiator if it has a built-in oil cooler for the engine oil or automatic trans fluid.

Something let go except your radiator, and the shop replacing it did nothing except take your money.
Somethimes the oil cooler is located in the radiator and can mix when they break. I would say another tech without Saab knowledge makes some monry on an unsuspecting owner
