I think I have coolant in oil pan.

Hi new here, I have a 2005 F250 6.0 powerstroke, with 113,000 miles on it.
other than straight pipe and Hyperpack tunes and K&N air filter all stock. Last summer when pulling boat noticed eot" getting up to 230, on highway so fig the oil cooler/egr cooler was going bad again. Dealer replaced original egr cooler around 60,000, a couple of months after that they finally replaced the heads on it. "this was in 2009".

Ok two weeks ago i drove the the truck about 150 miles came home,shut down. About an hour later went to move the truck and white smoke pouring out exhaust so that confirmed it. So parked the truck until i got parts for egr delete. and new oil cooler. So last night i went to start truck because I have to move it about 10 feet to work on it. So before start like always i check the fluids, because the truck does not get drove much just a few times in summer when pulling boat. So i pulled the oil plug to get good look at oil and i think i have some coolant in oil pan. has anyone seen this happen with a bad oil cooler / egr cooler?
If so will i be ok to drain the rest of old oil out and put new in so i can move truck, so i can work on it.

Sorry about the long story, I'm new to posting on these forms really don't know the proper etiquette yet.
thank you in advance for any help.

coolant can definitely get in the oil from a badly failed EGR cooler

Thanks for the reply, kinda makes me feel better.
I am starting the egr/ oil cooler replacement tomorrow. I was planning to drain all oil out and replace filter and oil so I can start it to move it out of the way, when its apart, don't know how long this will take.
The oil was not milky so do you think i need to flush the pan out, or just drain and clean oil will be ok to start and move.
also planning on changing the oil again after cooler/egr/coolant filter install and going with synthetic.

thanks again

On the earlier 6.0 the water pump can cavitate and cause the front cover to leak water into the oil. Don't know if this applies to you but may be something to look at.

Thanks for the reply,
Yes i've hear that had planned on trying to check that if it is not too hard to get to. And i Have all the tools that i would need, All my tools are still in Ohio in storage, I brought the basics with me until we find a house with a garage.

I only had about a cup or better of coolant come out when i first took oil pan bolt out. when i drained it to day couldn't see any more. Just a few small bubbles. So put a bucket under it and poured fresh oil in, until i could see clean oil come out. put bolt back in topped off with fresh oil and new oil filter, started it up and moved it. It fired up great, and fairly quick and sounded good so i moved it, and shut it down checked dip stick no milk and looked down oil fill hole for any signs of milky oil couldn't find any still hopeful that it's not a head gasket again.

thanks for the reply
i appreciate any help i can get
