Fuel In Coolant

I have a coolant reservoir full of fuel. My Passenger side battery area was real wet from the coolant reservoir cap spewing fuel. Any ideas on the cause? Cracked block? head gasket? I know that there is a common concern for oil in coolant but this is definitely diesel.

its going to be a cracked injector cup (or sometimes called injector slever) in the cylender head. They are a servicable part.

no...the cups really shouldnt be able to let oil into the coolant...just fuel.....are you sure its engine oil and not trans fluid?? could be the trans cooler in the radiator leaking....

Also...sometimes oil gets deposited in places when an oil cooler goes out and will keep popping back up in the radiator multiple times...its a pain to clean them out sometimes...
