oil in radiator

Hello everyone. I have a '07 2500hd classic. At 26000 miles I noticed oil in my radiator. Took it to dealership they said oil cooler was leaking and they fixed it. I went back about every 20000 miles and they said it was resideu in the engine. I finally got the to take a closer look at (after the 5th time back to dealership). Now they are saying it's my headgasket. Is this a common problem and is it going to keep giving me problem. The truck runs awesome I love it. I have heard it has to do with the heads. I don't know. this is my first deisel.

The older Dmaxs had some issues but not many newer trucks have any problems with sealing, If you end up wanting a vin check done on your truck to see what gm is just post your vin I can show you all the warranty work and build sheet and stuff

Sounds like an isolated incident, you hardly ever hear of headgaskets going on a Dmax.

The oil cooler is what they told me was the problem. They don't have the other three times I brought it back to them for the oil in radiator. They told me it was residue. I guess what I'm wanting to know is if they just replace the head gasket will it fix the problem. They told me that the gasket wasn't cracked it must have had blow by. I asked him if he was going to mil the heads. He said they would insp. them. I have a couple of mech. telling me it was probly because the heads were warped. I don't know anything about deisels. If it was gas I would know.

Strange.... Have you been losing engine oil?

I had my oil cooler go at about 8000 miles. They flushed it several times after replacing the cooler and I have never had a problem since.

My guess is either they didn't flush it good enough the first time or you have another leak from the cooler. Oil in the antifreeze via gaskets isn't very common-usually it's the other way around.
