I have oil in my coolant resevoir. I use 1 quart a month. There is no water in the oil just oil in the water. I have flushed the radiator clean 3 times over 8 months. I also ran an expensive block sealer through the coolant system as well. I am guessing its an oil cooler problem.

Not sure. Any help out there? Thank you in advance.

i found this somewhere:

CTS was designed as a replacement for the badge-engineered, Opel-based Catera.

Originally slated to carry the same name as its predecessor, the new
Catera Touring Sedan, instead became known as the CTS, otherwise called C-Series Touring Sedan.

The success of the CTS has been attributed in part to the car's placement in the 2003 sci-fi action thriller The Matrix Reloaded, followed by the 2008 Motor Trend Car of the Year award.
