Oil in Coolant- how to fix?

Alright I have no doubts that it's the oil cooler. Had 45* deltas and was gonna order cooler this weekend but go figure it didn't wait. Came home from running a wreck on interstate and no probs then shut down and went inside. Came out to get mail and found a puddle of oil under truck.Oil in Coolant- how to fix?-imageuploadedbyautoguide1381800500.665375.jpg

Noticed oil in degas Oil in Coolant- how to fix?-imageuploadedbyautoguide1381800529.534022.jpg that hasn't turned milky yet. Drained sample from fumoto in oil pan. No water. Drained sample from rad and only slight oily film like gas drop on water. I have studs, erg delete and oem HGs. I have no doubts it's the oil cooler. ? Is do I just put a new cooler in, drain the coolant and flush with simple green & dawn? Will it screw up new cooler? Just curious I don't wanna mess anything else up. I'm hoping that I was able to catch before the oil made it all the way through the system.

Using simple green is a good start. When mine ruptured I 2 rinses with just water. Then simple green and water. 5 flushes with just water. Restore and water. 5 just water. Restore plus and water. Then 10 with distilled. Drain and refill with cat ec1, not the 50/50. The bad part is that all of this has to be done after you change the cooler and could clog the new one.

The new one had lasted me over 10k I'm going to replace it soon but after it was all done my deltas were at about 7. They've since climbed to around 10. But I figure 10k after replacing a rupture is pretty good.

Well crap. Looks as though I'll put a cooler in it and I hate to say it but I'll probably be a traitor back to the gas side

well originally that gold crap. been flushing with water trying to get my oil cooler somewhat flushed and getting the goop out. I've flushed several times and had ELC in it, I knew the cooler was shot, hell had actually started to price them and then this.

Plans are to take a fluid evacuator and suck the oil out so I don't drain through my radiator and further complicate my cleanup. Then replace the cooler and try and get the mass of the oil out. Then flush, flush, flush, flush, flush......did I mention flush? and when I get my taxes back BPD. If I don't go back to a gas engine in a 2500 or 3500 dodge first... damn 6.0 making me wanna burn the bastard to the ground.
