Coolant in Oil

Did an oil change on my 7.3 today...as soon as I cracked the old filter, I saw some green stuff dripping down. Not a whole lot, but enough to tell it was coolant

I had noticed the coolant level was lower than usual, but here is the situation as most of you know...truck was rolled in January has seen maybe 200 miles in the span of 2 months.

My buddy that works at Ford as a tech thinks it could be a cracked oil cooler.

What do you guys think? am I looking at a head gasket, or is this normal for the truck being upside down for a split second?

oh and there are no changes in performance, and no weird smoke coming from exhaust.

I've never heard of the oil cooler cracking, but when they blow an o-ring, you can get oil-coolant mixing. Here is the site for a rebuild kit:

Cool, thanks for that link. Maybe that's what he meant. Then again, he's used to working on sixleakers

Thanks...pretty simple really:

-07 bumper w/ top trim
-07 headlights
-07 grille

and finally cutout the headerpanel to have the 07 headlights fit properly. and you'll need a pigtail/harness to upgrade to the news heads.
