Question about 1993 Volkswagen Passat
My service manual for a 90-93 Passat makes no mention of a VR-6 engine but here's what it says for the regular auto transmission.
Loosen the bottom pan bolts and let the old fluid drain into a catch pan. Remove it and clean it . Replace the strainer (filter) if it can't be cleaned or is damaged. Replace the pan gasket, be sure the 4 corner gasket spacers are in place before tightening the bolts.Torques are 71 in-lbs for the filter and 89 in-lbs for the pan bolts.
To check the fluid level, the engine and trans must have a minimum of 6 miles of driving on them before the level is checked. The engine is running when you check it. The 20*C mark is the cold level.
VW recommends this be done every 2 years or 30,000 miles.

This is probably a head gasket problem and not an oil cooler problem.
The oil cooler is fairly easy to test.
Remove the cooler from the engine but do not disconnect cooling lines and then pressurize the cooling system. You can use a radiator test tool to put pressure on the cooling system and look for leaks. If it leaks, replace it.
You may also be able to bypass the oil cooler altogether if it leaks.
The head gasket is another story.
Get a 1/4" pipe to spark plug fitting and put a male air coupling fitting in it.
Then you can charge the cylinders with air from your compressor.
Make sure each cylinder that you test is at top dead center so that the valves are closed.
If air bubbles into your coolant, you found your problem.
If air leaks out your intake you have a bad intake valve
If air leaks out your exhaust you have a bad exhaust valve etc.
If you find this useful, please take the time to rate it.

The engine cover just pulls off the clips so no problem their the oil filter is inside a plastic housing at the front of the engine rightish side and it has a 32mm or 28 mm head on the top of the plastic housing as its a cartridge type oil filter not a screw on type that you are accustomed too.
