You need the fix it yourself and put the story behind you (many years ago I got screwed by a local shop, after the episode I decided to by a lift and I never look back so they actually do me a favour).

So, get the area clean, fix the Oil Pipe as per the TB, put everything back and upon success turn your attention to you old Oil Cooler.

As per Ivan post, do the pressure test your self or have it done and it does not leak put it for sale.

Ordered new oil cooler seals today to install later in the week. And advice on installation? Should I use silicon, or something similar to hold them to the block? Or do you put them on the cooler 1st?
