oil in antifreeze

This is on my dads 6.0 he has noticed oil in his antifreeze, is this bad or normal and should he try to get it out, Also what would cause this. His truck is completely stock.

Its only like a little bit and there is no water in the oil should this not be much of a problem He says its just a little oily on top in the resivoir should he just flush that little bit out and keep an eye on it.

bump for ya. from what i have heard, stop driving it, driving it makes it worse and harder ($$$) to get fixed. it sounds like the oil pump and since it is in the coolant the system will have to be flushed at least once in not more. please keep in ming that my tech was telling me about this when i picked up my truck for the egr and egr cooler a few months ago. he actually has an 05 sitting in his lot for about 6 weeks now waiting on the customer to give the go ahead as to fix it or not. hopefully one of the techs will chime in on this.

His truck doesnt smoke at all and runs fine and strong. but uses about a quart of coolant every 1000 miles but its been doing this for the past 5 monthes it has over heated once when he first bought it cause he didnt think to check it. Oh and its my dads business partners truck. It has regular water in it not distilled would that make it use more water. Still comfused about the oil though This truck is the work horse of the business so would like to know if its good to go it pulls every day 12,000lbs. Thanks

Definitely a bad oil cooler and yes, you'll have to flush it several times and you'll still have oil in your coolant passages...
