Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,
But not to say the other guys were wrong...

You could have several issues here. A blockage in the radiator, bad coolant temp sensor, (not turning the cooling fan on) a bad cooling fan motor. sounds as if maybe one of these may be your primary issue, and the cause of the overheating that originally caused your head gasket problem. Hope this helps

Testimonial: "thank you very much"
Blue smoke means that the cylinder is burning oil with gas/diesel. White smoke means that the engine is cold and excess fuel is being burnt. It means that the cylinder is having worn out rings.They need a change. Also check the engine oil level as well. It may be going low gradually.

Testimonial: "hello shiela65 You are right the oil is going down gradually. What is the number of hours required to change the rings, Thank you."
The most cheapest way is as follow: Disconect the hoses from the oil cooler and connect them together.Clean coolant system from the oil and drive about 20 miles.Check again coolant system.If there is oil-change cylinder head gasket.If not-change oil cooler.If you are in London go to see Hall service centre N17 Ferry lane next to Hall subway station-Tottenham.Tell Duane -Sabo send me here.

replace the oil cooler first before you change the head gasket ,but normally a 10 year old vehicle often has gasket fatigue ,not made like a good old fashioned copper head gasket ,they rarely went wrong
