i have seen plenty of 6.0 leak from the conector hose from egr cooler to oil cooler ,and be very hard to find leak, there is a updated hose just for that
problem ,most of the time when its leaking there it will drip in your driveway overnight cold but after engine warm wil burn off before hits ground

It ended up being the drivers side head gasket, covered under warranty!!!
5500 miles later, the engine has no oil in it and the antifreeze reservoir is full of oil!!!
Any ideas???

I have seen that too many times.

Your oil cooler is shot. Causing oil to get into the cooling system.

oh yeah by the way ,my experience with oil in the coling system with these 6.0 , you better make sure they replace everything needed ( hoses that will swell due to oil contamination and give problems later, have the radiator flushed professionally, the machines at the dealer wont flush good enough , coolant reservoir , , another problem is going to be the fact that alot of that oil sits in the block and will come back and fill the reservoir again after some driving ), it really does make a mess , hope this helps you to make sure they get it clean

I might be wrong but from what they are saying it mixes in the degas bottle not with the oil in the oil pan
