I am thinking I may have multiple issues going on...have to start isolating individual problems.
If the oil re-contaminates the coolant then i would start by checking the head gasket first. While the head is off ask your mechanic that you want to check it for yourself and also check the sleeves.

Will take note to check head gasket if I recontaminate the coolant.

Thanks

Coolant reservoir recontaminated with oil after 2 days of driving. Time to look at the head gasket now.

Sorry to hear. While the head is off ask the mechanic to check for piston play and wear and also the valve play in the guides.
