Ford F350: Just rebuilt the oil cooler on a 1995 7.3 turbo

Customer Question

Just rebuilt the oil cooler on a 1995 7.3 turbo diesel. Radiator belched oil and coolant and the crank case is full of coolant after being started. It began spewing fluid immediately. What happened how do I fix it?

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. Did you verify your fixed oil cooler is not the source of the fluid cross contamination?

That's what I am trying to find out, what would cause this to happen? Does the oil cooler tube have to be installed a certain direction? There was a valve in rear of the cooler does that have something to do with this kind of issue?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
From what I could find on forums and you tube videos no one mentions the repercussions of a faulty install. So I am trying to see if I did something wrong during installation and how to get the coolant out of the crank case.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.
It is going to to take multiple flushing and running to get all the oil out of the coolant and vice versa. It will not happen in one drain and fill. The main possible causes for fluid cross contamination are the oil cooler, head gaskets, heads, and injector sleeves. Below is a link on how to assemble and disassemble the cooler, is that what you followed? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------On your screen at the top you should see a rating 1-5 stars and a green submit button.
