Would you clarify your question 7.3???? Quarts or is that an engine size
If you Just added an Oil Cooler to an engine filling the cooler with oil is rather simple Add the correct amount of oil to your engine and start the vehicle as your pump runs the oil will circulate into your new cooler and you only add as much oil as it takes to bring the level up to the manufacturers level.If you Just changed the Oil cooler and your engine will not start Check everything you did while replacing it you may have disconnected an electrical part that is causing your Failure.

How to replace oil cooler

The problem is NOT your oil cooler, You have a blown gasket. Which is really bad, very expensive to fix. usually means replacing the engine. I REPEAT, IT IS NOT THE OIL COOLER!!!

Disconnect the hose (s) from the oil cooler line ( some oil might drip from the hose ) change the fitting, reconnect the hose, start the car and check the fitting and hose connection ( clamp ) for leaks ( tight as necessary ) move the transmission shifter thru all the gears and check the transmission oil level.

Change Spark Plugs but engine starts to leak oil

??? Sounds purely coincidental... You may want to look at where the oil is coming from and fix that issue. Oil pan, Oil filter, oil cooler, oil sending unit, intake manifold, valve covers, rear seal....

Oil leaks pour from my Oil cooler right above oil filter when I start driving

The oil is most likely leaking from the oil cooler seal. The oil cooler is the square aluminum piece that the oil filter screws onto. To replace the seal, remove the filter, remove both coolant hoses that attach to the cooler, remove the nut that secures the cooler to the block and slide the cooler off the tube. Replace the rubber o-ring seal which is available at the VW dealer. It's inexpensive. Replace everything in reverse order. Good luck

Coolant leaking into the engine oil. I'm guessing

its more than likely either your head gasket or intake gasket. You either have the 3.4 or 3.8 engine and they are well known for these to leak.

Oil cooler seal

There are two items that can be leaking oil there. There is a gasket between the oiler cooler flange (the item attached to the engine), and the rubber gasket/seal that goes between the cooler and the flange. (the latter is the one that leaks most often as most oil change shops over tighten the oil filter).
I just replaced the gasket between the cooler and flange recently. I chose to do it quick and dirty: 1. remove oil filter 2. remove oil filter nipple (the portion you screw the filter onto) 2a. you'll need a deep well socket to get the bolt that holds the cooler tight (I believe 27mm)
2b. pull down the cooler, Grab the nipple with a pair of pliers between the flange and cooler and loosen/remove
3. remove old gasket/seal and clean surface 4. put new seal/gasket in place 5. re-seat the nipple back in. use the pliers method, just make sure you don't scar the threads where you NEED them( you don't need all of them). 6. put some gasket sealer (oil friendly) on the gasket and make sure its in place 7. tighten oil cooler onto flange with large nut and socket 8. replace oil filter and add oil as needed.
it is a tight working area, expect some scrapped knuckles, but it isn't too difficult.
good luck
