Coolant in oil?

I am new to PSD I have an 05 with coolant in oil per the oil anilysis. What I have read I thought the oil pressure is higher than coolant pressure and bad head gaskets would cause oil in coolant? my truck runs fine. Oil looks good is not a milkshake. I have an 05 CC 6.0 edge programmer 151xxx. have had it a year and have put 10xxx on it since i bought it. I have installed an amsoil bypass filter and a coolant filter. caqn someone point me in the right direction? THANKS

Coolant in the oil can be a couple different things. Could be a bad egr cooler leaking small amounts of coolant into the cylinders. Otherwise it might be a head gasket leaking slightly.

You could have a leaking oil cooler or the front cover may be leaking between an oil passage to a water passage. You can still have a head gasket leak between a oil passage and water passage or water to an oil drain back passage. These can leak without affecting performance.

Only way I can think of without pulling the pan is with a digital inspection camera.
Drain the oil insert camera pressureize the coolant system useing a dye common vegetable dye works ok if your useing water for testing. Ya just look to see where it may be running down the block.

As for the other possibilities pullin them is the only way I know and visualy inspecting.

Not cheap on the customer tho.
