If there is engine oil in the radiator or coolant in the crank case. That can be caused by the oil cooler, head gasket, head, or the block. A crack will allow for cross contamination. Which do you have. Oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil?

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

We put a new oil cooler water pump hoses radiator had the heads redone on the head gasket
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Oil in the coolant means the leak is where the oil pressure is higher than the coolant pressure, so that rules out the block to blame. I suggest a cylinder compression and leak down test to confirm the head gasket is fine and the head is not warped. If it passes then I would replace the head (s) for a possible internal crack not visible.

I like to stay in contact with my customers that appear not pleased, still working on the concern, or have not rated yet. I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off. I am also sending an offer allowing me to upload diagrams or repair guides if that helps.

Thanks Chris
