Those three are the way they bored the oil channels . On end you will see a plug for the cross channel that ties them together . All can be used to monitor oil pressure ,temperature add or remove oil ie. filter (partial type )  feed .

I do not think color ever changes .LOL . But one other advance to anti- freeze it also raise the boiling point for better cooling . Since we have non-pressurized systems would only be 212* a mere 32 above stat .

Went though similar with mine . But had over heating from white calcium deposits across top of fins . This from setting so long that fluid dried out in it, leaving calcium deposits . Rad shop said same, so I took CLR and put in it for 8 hrs and used flex arm coil brush across top every hour . Was able to get clean enough to pass water and never had over heating again .
   Used green anti-freeze and if changed ever three, four years, should have all additives needed .
