Oil cooler problem; Please Help!

I just changed my oil cooler/adaptor because springs fell out of the old one. I got it all together, put the fluids back in, started the truck and in my radiator it looked like chocolate milk. I think the first thing is I am screwed, but would like to know what is going on. I am almost positive that I put everything together correctly. All help is appreciated!

Check the o-rings on the cooler tube or make sure the adapter gaskets did not get damaged.

I am about to get it off again and check everything. Is there a wrong direction the oil cooler can go in? And what is the best way to make sure I have all the antifreeze out if the oil pan?

You can use water and dawn dish soap to clean the cooling system of oil.

It is very easy to damage the O-rings when putting the cooler together. Make sure there are no burrs on the inside were they seat. Lubricate the o-rings good before assembly. I have rebuilt two in the past month and on one I had to use a press to gently get the ends on the cooler.
