Help Head gasket?

Hi all,it's been a while.
I have black crap in the coolant top filler tank and when I corner the WARNING message 'oil pressure low' lights up. It stops only when oil topped up but starts again within a few days. The local garage did a quick fix for me which worked for a few months ( a magic 20 sealant potion or an egg) but it's back now and I want it fixed . My car boffin has not worked on this engine before and has asked me to find out if it has an oil cooler pump, as in a lot of cases with same symptoms it was that which had gone. Any feedback most welcome. 156 2.0 JTS 2004 60,000 ish miles on clock and a thirst for oil, at mo [LOL]

Yes the JTS has a oil/coolant heat exchanger. Could be your problem.
