oil cooler failure????

Im asking this question for my boss' truck. its a 07 f350. his oil cooler failed, there is alot of oil in the antifreeze and leaking all over the place. a shop told him that they need to replace oil cooler and head gaskets. they said the head gaskets need to be replaced cause the oil in the cooling system will cause them to fail in the near future. is this true or does it sound like a load of crap? in my mind i feel replace oil cooler and do a really good coolant flush. am i wrong or is the mechanic? thanks...

I would replace oil cooler and do a VC-9 coolant flush and give it a shot.

I would replace or rebuild oil cooler, replace egr cooler with bullet proof or delete it, flush and then see what you have. It may need head gaskets, but just becouse there is oil in the coolant doesnt mean the head gaskets are shot. But for sure plan on dealing with the egr cooler while its torn apart.
