What engine do you have in your passat?

Did you say you replaced the oil cooler? Oil coolers leak oil into the cooling system when they go bad:

Here's a video I made (Pressure testing the cooler to check if it is leaking)

If the oil cooler was replaced, then the only other places oil can enter the system is through the
head gasket.
