Oil Cooler Testing

Discovered a very minor oil leak (drip) from the exposed end of the cooler. It appears to be coming from one of the fins near the edge that is held by the mounting strap. Plan to remove and inspect. Does anyone know of a procedure to pressure test the cooler out of the car that I could perform at home?

Thanks,
colonel

It would be hard to test without a fixture... I offer this service for 20 bucks but I'd say that with the oil in the area you mention chances are that the cooler is toast.. That 20 bucks could be better spent toward a brand new cooler...
