Possible Coolant in OIL... FML

Well its just my luck, was planning on 08 front end and some performance mods this year.. Thats not gonna happen if this is what I think it is. Checked out the beast yesterday and the coolant was low (not much), and the oil looked to be about a quart maybe more high and looked greenish. So I am sending out an oil analysis to see if i am F-ed. Gonna drain the oil and change it, probably gonna park it too. So what do you guys think I should do if it is coolant.. Usual culprets? injector cups, and injector O rings... FML

I hate to start throwing part at it.. so could be injector O rings, head gaskets, or oil cooler... Due to the fact that the coolent is pressurized and would be pushed into the non-pressureized oil system. Im thinkin not injector cups because the fuel is not in the coolant.?

Re: Possible Coolant in OIL... FML

I'd think oil cooler first.

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

Think i should start there? Replace the o rings on it or buy an oil cooler as well? No idea where I would go to get mine pressure tested around here. Should have put in original post that it has 206k on the clock.

Well, let me think.
Coolant is max 16PSI. Oil is more than that, right? At idle, no, but any other time?

Yeah right? But if that were the case wouldn't there be oil in my coolant? Might have to dumb it down for me
