This is probably a head gasket problem and not an oil cooler problem.
The oil cooler is fairly easy to test.
Remove the cooler from the engine but do not disconnect cooling lines and then pressurize the cooling system. You can use a radiator test tool to put pressure on the cooling system and look for leaks. If it leaks, replace it.
You may also be able to bypass the oil cooler altogether if it leaks.
The head gasket is another story.
Get a 1/4" pipe to spark plug fitting and put a male air coupling fitting in it.
Then you can charge the cylinders with air from your compressor.
Make sure each cylinder that you test is at top dead center so that the valves are closed.
If air bubbles into your coolant, you found your problem.
If air leaks out your intake you have a bad intake valve
If air leaks out your exhaust you have a bad exhaust valve etc.
If you find this useful, please take the time to rate it.

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...

Yes you could have a faulty oil cooler.But The oil in the coolent has nothing to do with the camshaft.There just trying to make a fast buck from you.Tell them just to change the oil cooler and nothing else.
