New oil cooler, 2 days later puking anti-freeze

I drive 2002 F250 7.3 with about 265k miles on it. I just had oil cooler replaced at local shop because mine was leaking oil and anti freeze. So they had to order brand new oil cooler from Ford. After they fixed it and went picked it up last Wednesday and drove it for 2 days and saw puddle of anti freeze on the parking lot where I work. It was on the right side. So I opened the hood and look around and noticed that right side was covered anti freeze and the degas bottle cap was covered also. So I decided to drop it off at the shop where I had it fixed. Well when I got there and talked with the guy at the shop and I went out and showed him where the anti freeze was covered. Well truck was still running at that time and saw it puking anti freeze out of the degas cap. It was kinda look like milky coolant. What can caused that? Head gaskets bad? Think the shop might have caused this? I need advice ASAP because truck is still at the shop and I want to see opinions so before they call me and say it is head gaskets. Thanks.

If you're not seeing oil in the coolant, or coolant in the oil pan, I'm not sure how the oil cooler could be causing this problem.

Thats a head gasket issue. Sounds like they beat the chit outta your truck while they had it. Head gaskets are rare to go bad on a 7.3.
