egr cooler/oil cooler/egr valve replacement

Right now all I have is a egr cooler leak but my question is, Should I replace the oil cooler and egr valve at the same time? The dealer tells me that they are both fine and they would not replace them if they are not broken but that it would be up to me. I am not seeing any white smoke which I guess would be a sign of oil cooler failure. I currently have 112k so it is out of warranty. I don't want to have to go through this again if the oil cooler fails and takes the egr cooler with it. Thanks you in advance for any help and guidance.

When the vehicle was parked I would notice coolant on the ground originating from the passenger rear of the engine compartment. The dealer said that I have a cracked egr cooler.

in all seriousness , the only thing you probably have wrong is the hose going from the egr cooler to the oil cooler , they are bad to leak and run down the passenger rear corner of the head

since getting it back from the dealer the check engine light has come on, I have no power and had white smoke coming from the exhaust.
