Usually the oil coolers will leak oil into the water. You shouldn't have anything to worry about regarding water in the oil. Keep an eye on it to be sure, but they usually replace the coolers together.

So the oil can leak into the water but the water cant get into the oil ? I guess the oil is under more pressure then the water .Thanks.

yeah its not like a gas engine with a bad head gasket where most would leak coolant into the oil. I know on the 7.3's anyway the seals will go bad and dump the oil into the coolant. Yours should be the same way. Kinda weird, but its better than water in the oil. Maybe a tech could explain it a little more as to why it works this way, but i would believe like you said that the oil has more pressure.

Honestly i'm not 100% sure on that. I bet one of our fine vendors on here could hook you up with a delete or block off plate. I would start a new thread about egr deletes. You will get more help that way.
