After having my oil cooler replaced about 12k miles ago I am still getting some small amounts of oil near the radiator cap. I have flushed it out three times. Is it possible for oil to get trapped in the surge tank ? Is there a way to get the oil out and be sure there are not any other issues ? This thing really has me pulling my hair out !!!

I think I remember reading that Detroit make 3 different coolant cleaners. A Detroit Diesel shop that replaced my air compressor used a dirty collection pan for my coolant and returned it to my motor. Oh I was hot. I have a clear plastic overflow tank and I could see the motor oil in it. Yes it was very hard to flush out.

Hopefully they fixed your oil leak!
