    There a couple of reasons you can get coolant into the oil. Could be from an oil cooler gasket seal, head gasket or a bad intake gasket. If you want us to check this out please call 313-562-7022 or schedule an appointment on line at StansGarage.net. I am sure we can diagnose it and give you the answer you need.
