Oil film in Coolant tank

Hello....I am new here and this is my first powerstroke 2000 F350 Old truck was 1992 F350 7.3 non turbo. I have a little oil in the coolant tank. Mostly a film on the surface no more than a 1/2 teaspoon. Truck runs great and has no water in oil. 187000mi still stock. How concerned should i be? Any ideas what is causing this?
P.S.- This site is GREAT. Thanks Troy

See if you can smell it. More than likely it is actually fuel in the coolant. That is usally caused by the injector cup cracking or the head cracking. I would try to smell it and if it smells like fuel then take it to your local FORD DEALER. I cant stress FORD DEALER enough.
