What kind of coolant did you buy? Did you flush with water or chemicals? Did you just let water run through it or did you run it for a bit with the thermostat out? The coolant should be either gold or red.

Leaving just water will produce rust which is why it's brown. What exactly is wrong with the truck? Your original post is kind of confusing

The green could be residual left in the system especially if the heat was not on. It takes time to flush it all out. If there is oil in it, it could indicate a possible oil cooler rupture.

Usually oil in coolant is due to the oil cooler being compromised. Read the stickies in the general 6.0 section to get a heads up as to what the problems are with the 6.0 platform and how to fix them. Also get a monitor like the scangauge 2 on it to tell health of the motor.

On a side note you can see if the egr has been deleted by looking just below the passenger side of the intake manifold. And with an 05 there should be a check engine light on the dash.
