Hmmm, I was going to suggest an o-ring replacement in the cooler but you've already gone past that. As far as oil still being in the coolant, it might just be a little residual stuff that didn't come all the way out but I don't know about a loss of oil pressure. If it's something with the injectors, they may need the o-rings replaced on them as well.

i would say its left over oil floating around in the water system.worst case it could be worn injector cups letting oil into the coolant,possible head gasket letting oil pass over to the water.how does your truck run?

My Truck Runs Great,really Good, I Have Done Alot Of Stuff To It Though. So Oil Can Get Into Water From Cups?
I Have Cleaned Out System Again And Keeping An Eye On It. Can Opnly Hope I Dont Have To Replce Inj Cups. I Found Another Ex Ford Tech That Has Tools Needed To Replace All Cups In Truck. But Would Rather Wash Out Than Work On....... Thxz Alot For All The Feedback. Ray

its almost impossible to get all oil out after oil coler replacement , do flush again ,i dont see injetor o-rings or injector cup either , it would be fuel before oil if injector related
