Hi Mike, The head was resurfaced, new valves, guides and springs. block was checked, the engine is running ok not heating or blowing into cooling system. If it was the oil cooler would the oil be in the water?. Can water pump housing or O rings cause water leak into oil, it does not leak when engine is stopped It will put approx 2 litres of water in oil in about 5 miles

Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 3 years ago.
From what you are describing this issue is a failure of the oil cooler, when the oil cooler fails water enters the oil but oil does not enter the water. This was a fairly common failure on these vehicles.
