need help! truck is down

I was losing coolant and found it coming out the exhaust. I figured it was the EGR cooler and oil cooler. Now that I have torn it apart and drained the oil I have water in the oil. Head gaskets? I tested the egr have ***'d last night. I filled the coolant side with water and pressurized it with air and it leaked out. Is there any way the oiler cooler could have caused the oil and water mix in my oil pan? So I guess I need to know if there is a way to check headgaskets or should I just yank the heads? any help appreciated.

if gaskets and arps are in your budget id say do em'. Youve already got alot torn down so why not go the extra step. Your gona need a compresion tester and leakdown tester to see if the head gaskets are bad though.

If you have alot of miles or suspect bad rings a leakdown test is going to show a leak.
yes your oil cooler can allow water into your oil. there are threads that discuss this, personally never delt with mine.

Your oil cooler has ruptured and needs replacing. It's likely due to casting sand accumulating in your oil cooler coolant passages and restricted it so that it ruptured. Need to get a coolant bypass filter to prevent it from recurring.

While I agree you need an oil cooler, I have seldom seen just an EGR cooler leak put water in the engine oil. You may have another issue going on as well.
Do you have a peanut butter oil condition or was there just some water came out when you pulled the drain plug.

I have NEVER seen an EGR cooler put water in the engine oil. Please explain...

oil cooler leaks

You will more than likely see cut/damaged orings. Damage to the tubes themselves unless it is on the external edges you may not see. A pressure test would need to be done to find that.
