My same thoughts....wouldn't your oil level be RISING because of the coolant mixing in with it? He's right, definitely check the valve cover gasket or even the intake gasket before you let anyone touch your truck. They'll replace your head gasket, then you'll run into the 'might as well get a new intake/valve cover gasket while we're in there' scenario.
