    Oil in Water.... but no smoke.... oil cooler gone?

    Hi

    My facelift model was flashing for oil level the other day so i put more oil in. Checked the coolant expansion tank and saw it was full of a brown like oil. Theres no smoke and my temps arent going all over the place. Someone mentioned my oil cooler going but could someone point out where it is so I can see for any visable damage.....

    Going on what Ive said does it look like oil cooler? I know headgasket is a possibility but as mentioned I have no smoke or other issues. Oil filler cap is black, no mayo like substance.

    If my searching comes to no avail ill get it pressure tested and see what happens

    thanks

    Mmmm looking at them I can only see a difference in one of the measurements , one being pretty much 90mm square and the other being 90mm x 100mm so ever so slightly rectangular !
    Id say measure yours and go from there
