If the head was re-worked properly then you probably have a cracked block.

our mechanic tells me that he bypassed the Oil Cooler all together and still has the problem. I am desperatly hoping that there is a simple solution. We have spent a lot of money trying to keep this car going. Thanks for all your insights.

I have the same problem and I don't know what could it be
