just recently had to replace the radiator because the old one blew a hole out in the side.after replacing the radiator and thermostat i started to get antifreeze in the oil.there's no oil in the antifreeze just antifreeze in the oil.the truck runs great no noise,i was told to change the oil immediately and drain some of the coolant so it doesnt leak back into the oil.i need your thoughts on where the water is leaking into the oil,i was thinking head gasket but the truck runs great.i also heard it could be the intake manifold gasket.please help i dont want to do work that isnt needed

If there is antifreeze in your oil, you most likely have a bad head gasket. Cracked head or block would do the same thing. No matter HOW full your coolant is, it should never be able to get into your oil.
