Oil in coolant

I have notice an incresing amount in my oil resivoir, could this be a head gasket going bad or something with the HPO cooler? Any suggestions would be great, just wondering where to start looking.
Thanks, Justin

Truck is a 97 powerstroke 203,000 miles.

CrazyDriver,
Any updates? Did you find out if it was the oil cooler or not? I've got the same issues.

Thanks
Chris

Well, turns out I have a coolant leak from the front part of the oil cooler, I'm thinking the orings. Also I have a steady stream of coolant coming out of the rear passenger side head out of the large freeze plug.

To answer your question, yes, there is a freeze plug on the back of the head.

I did replace the orings in the oil cooler and it has seemed to fix the problem. The original orings were craked and dried up.
