Oil in coolant

I have an 05 6.0 that is getting oil in the coolant. For starters I just replaced the EGR Cooler a week and a half ago. I don't think there was anything I did then that would have caused this. Figured I would put that out there just in case. Anyway guessing this is the oil cooler gone bad right? How bad of a job is this? Don't think it can be much harder than the EGR cooler.

actually its about the same amount of work as the egr cooler.....

once the turbo and intake are out....the oil cooler is the thing the oil filter housing bolts to...the squarish thing that is at the front of the engine valley.....just unbolt the 10-18 or however many 10mm head bolts hold it on and away it goes....

once its all back together..fill the cooling system with strait water and about half a gallon of simple green....run it about 100 miles...drain the system....fill it with strait water...run it another 100 miles...then drain and fill it with the appropriate mixture of coolant...go a little heavy on the coolant (60% coolant or so) becasue the system will have a little extra water in it...

Thanks for the reply Marc

So much for having a couple of days off to get ready for Derby

Guess I'll be tearing her down again starting in the morning

I am getting a Cowl Induction hood for it should this dramatically drop the under hood temp? Maybe help stop these problems.
