1999 996 oil in coolant, coolant in oil

Fuel System

Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 1999; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 63000;

I just found out I have a small amount of oil in the coolant and a small amount coolant in the oil. I have owned the 996 C4 Cab for 3 years, and the only symptom is I need to add a quart of coolant after a 500 mile drive. The car seems to run good, however, I have been told it is ether a leak in the heat exchanger or an engine gasket. I am the second owner and the car has 63000 miles. Most mechanics tell me I need to replace the engine. Any advice would be helpful.
