soot or oil in my coolant

i thought it was oil when i first saw it but ford sead it was soot from the exhaust and they thought it could be the EGR cooler but they tested it and sead it was fine to drive it and c what happens and it has puffed out whit smoke a cup of times and over heated but is barely loosing n e water ford dont know what to do with it now n e thoughts on what it could be

and the white residue all over the coolant reservoir is from the mechanic making a mess it didnt blow out n e thing around the cap

Wow, time for another dealer. Oil or soot in the cooling system is not good. Should do it right away before it turns into something really big.

Make sure you keep all the documents that came from Ford. Might need them in the future. Any chance of taking it to another dealer?
