diesel fuel is in coolant resorvoir

major issue,today parked truck and smelled alot of diesel..coolant overflow was full of diesel and overflowed with pressurized fuel. How can diesel and coolant mix? Engine oil is fine. Could this be o rings on the injectors? I am at a loss with this one on how to properly diagnos.
Thanks for any help in advance!

Injector cups usually I think.
When it's that issue it's a fairly common theme.

Sounds like injector cups!! When you pull injector out they remain in head still. They do require special tool to pull them out.

i am having a hard time with the dealer to simply ask for 'injector cups' or even sleeves.

Is there any chance these are available aftermarket? If so who would carry these? I can source the o rings but stumped with the cups.. Also if somebody can post a link to what these actually look like would be great.
I just dont want to remove a valve cover until i know what i am getting into.

Thanks,
~Bruce~
