First, are you sure it's growing, or was it just overfilled?
What does the oil smell like? Coolant, diesel? If you can't tell, but you're sure it's growing, I'd send it to Blackstone Labs to get it tested for what EXACTLY is in it.

Ok, It was FOR SURE under the mark before? Both times was it on level ground? Most of the time when the oil level goes up its a fuel problem.

The general consensus is that Ford Gold is bad. It's best to get a good Extended Life coolant, like from a truck stop, or semi dealer.
