Answers :

You have blown another head gasket. Oil won't get into the coolant, or coolant into the oil, but after the engine warms up exhaust gas will force it's way into the water jacket and stop coolant from flowing through. The best part is that it will be intermittent for a while, which makes it hard to find, but it will get progressively worse. Hopefully, it will be the same gasket the dealer has already replaced, which will help you convince them to warranty the job. You might want to make sure they had the head machined before putting it all back together.\015\012Good luck!
