Just replaced my radiator on f250 superduty 6/4l diesel

Hello All,

I just last Friday, May June 01, 2012, replaced my radiator on my 2008 Ford Super Duty F250 6.4L diesel. Second time it has been replaced. Everything looked good, so I drove it 150 miles to another city and now I have oil in the radiator, looked like about 2 quarts of oil, and the oil dip stick shows just barely touching the oil in the crankcase. Have not checked or drained to oil to check for water in the oil yet.

Where is the cooler located that could be leaking the oil into the coolant system? I am not sure if the vertical ERG cooler would do this, but like I said, I am not sure.

Any help will be tremendously appreciated. I am basically stranded 150 miles from home.

Thanks and Have a Great Day,
Jraquel

Thanks Moto2four, Nice "book".

Anyone ever had this problem before and know of the best way to attack it other than depending on the Ford service department. Have not had much success with them on this truck and all its problems. I bought it new and has been nothing but trouble.

Thanks again Moto2four.
