You have oil leaks getting on the exhaust system, they are getting into the car, have the car checked over to find source of leaks.

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.
