Im with capnblu on this one, the coolant is under pressure and so the only way oil could enter the water is if its coming from an area of the engine where there is oil pressure or when the engine cools maybe a tiny bit of oil could be sucked in from a non pressure area but I wouldn't tear the engine apart just yet. The engine is running okay so compression test and oil analisys is appropriate and i would flush the cooling system and refill and then monitor for awhile
