check your front cover! remove your water pump and check for cavitation on cover. small hole will do this.

will an egr cooler put antifrezze in my oil ?
the egr cooler has to be allowing quite a bit of coolant in the intake for it to be getting past the rings to get into your oil , im not gonna say thats not your issue ,but is usually fairly obvious if the cooler is goin bad enough to get in oil , have seen some front cover issues but not many

i dont do the whole oil analysis stuff , because i think that it makes most people paranoid they have major issues when they most of the time dont , but how much coolant does it say it has , alot or is it very minimal

Front cover or oil cooler!if its alot of oil it's oil cooler if its a little bit of oil it's the front cover. Ones under pressure ones not!

Did they also list what the normal readings should be?

Yes you have to take the cover off to be able to see if there is a hole in the back side the cover.

Hate to disagree with the oil cooler part. The OP has coolant in his oil not oil in his coolant. If the cooler was ruptured you would indeed get oil in the coolant system because the oil pressure is greater than the coolant pressure.

Right church just wrong phew.

no it doesn't say what the normal range would be, just to flush and retest at half interval. I'm putting a mark on my degas bottle to see if it goes down, right now it is about 1 inch below max.

You are correct I was explaining the 2 ways it can go that is all.if its a front cover with a small hole the will be coolant in the oil! If its a oil cooler there will be lots of oil in the coolant you may have misread my statement. Anyway you are correct. I do many of these each month be it front cover or oil cooler.

I am in right church and right phew!
