Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I normally log in after 3 pm central. Please make sure to let me know exactly what is needed from me so I can provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service. I am a different tech than the both that have attempted to help prior. I see your questioning if the oil cooler is to blame. How long have you owned this vehicle, current miles, and when you got it?How much oil was in the coolant degas bottle?Was the color brownish or reddish?Have you checked to see if the transmission oil is contaminated with coolant from a faulty trans cooler inside the radiator?Were you flushing the coolant to resolve an issue or because you noticed the oil?If you can answer each of these, I can help you get this figured out.Thanks Chris.
