Was your issue the heat exchanger as suggested?
sure was. tried swapping exchanger gasket just to know 100% what was causing it- same issue- replaced whole exchanger and never had an issue again. Cleared it right up. Good luck! ( super easy to swap it out)

That's my possible thinking, but the oil level remains very high and has done for a while now.

Could it be corrosion from the upper radiator?

Doesn't take much oil to contaminate the coolant. Prolly not enough to notice an oil level drop. Like i said mine was the exchanger. Easy fix.
