It's definately an EGR cooler, but it could also have head gasket issues too. I would replace the EGR cooler and the oil cooler (or at least flush the oil cooler) and see what happens.

No problem. Definately make sure to take care of the oil cooler also. The oil cooler gets restricted and contributes to the EGR cooler failure.
