I believe it is right behind the oil filter.

Could be the oil cooler on the engine. The reason you get oil in the coolant is because the oil pressure is higher than the coolant pressure. Jim

I think it mounts to the right (hot) side of the cylinder block in a long rectangular cavity. The core is inside the block. It would not be visible other than the mounting flange and several bolts. You might have a failed core.
