Well.. i was really hoping i wouldnt have to write one of these posts... but based on past similar postings i did a days worth of poking around to see what was up... - There are Oil "Drops" in the coolant, it isnt a small amount - The car was losing coolant, one day the coolant light flipped on and thats what lead me to find it. There are no signs of coolant leaking? - Did a compression test, 160 - 170 across the board - Spark plugs are in great shape - Oil Cap is IMPOSSIBLE to remove while running. - The oil looks clean on the dipstick - i am going to drain it and see what the rest looks like Any thoughts are appreciated!

Possible leak at the oil cooler, not uncommon.
