I have 1998 Audi A4 1.8T, B5, Manual. I have oil in coolant reservoir. Car drives perfect and No water on oil cap. Any idea? My car is manual, is there difference between Automatic and Manual Oil cooler? Can be Oil Cooler? Please Help!

Most likely it could be the oil cooler apart from head gasket. Remove the coolant hose from oil cooler and then start the car. Check for oil dripping from the cooler on the water side to see if the fault is with the oil cooler. If the cooler is faulty, replace with a new one and also replace the oil filter. Flush the entire cooling system.
