Its fairly easy, you dont have to replace the fittings at the cooler. if they are leaking up at the cooler, it needs to be replaced, but if not, its just simple line to line, not too long of a process
please rate well! hope this gives you the info you needed!

It's harder then it seams, you have to disconnect the engine mount on the drivers side to get enough room to remove and replace the old oil lines. Other then the engine needing to be raised a bit, it's simple. Good luck and hope this helps, it takes about 3 to 4 hour to do this job and don't for get to use lock tight and keep everything clean.

there should be 1 nut and stud holding the lines to the housing. I would suggest replacing the upper o-ring for the oil filter adapter at the same time. The oil cooler hoses are also prone to leak, if so, you want to replace evreything while you are there.

SOURCE: oil cooler lines leaking
Inspect where the oil is leaking from the oil cooler line, it's common for the oil to leak from the remote oil cooler line adapter bolt on the engine block. You can remove the two bolts one at a time and place a oil drain plug washer with some RTV silicon to ensure that it will not leak.
The other common place for the oil line to leak is from where the rubber lines mate to the aluminum line from the remote oil filter line adapter. This is also a simple fix but you're going to need a drumlin tool cut off the old compression clamp that was press fit. Cut off the old compression fitting ring, use cation that you only cut off the ring and replace it with a new compression clamp. Make sure you use compression clamps and not a hose clamp.
This is the best way to fix the oil leak from the adapter line to the rubber hose line, to replace the whole line with the new adapter is expensive and i believe your have to disconnect the engine mount to raise the engine to clear enough room to install the new line along the frame.
Good luck and don't use any engine oil stop leak, it will damage your oil pressure relieve valve and that's one extra thing you don't need to replace.
