Could a bad radiator be causing all of this?

I have a 2001 Camry that has oil in the coolant, it has a burning coolant type smell, it's misfiring and white smoke is coming from the tail pipe. The test for a blown head gasket is negative. What else could cause all of this. My next suspect is a radiator leak.

@mjbruns,
I know you said the test for a blown head gasket is negative, but I cannot imagine anything else that could cause that. Well, maybe a cracked block, but the gasket is much more common.

At that age, I'm pretty sure that either cause would cost more to fix than a much newer car. It's sad, but sooner or later, it happens to every car.

@roger,
You're probably right.
