help me find the leak

i have developed an oil leak. it is under the driver side exhaust manifold of my 1996 obs the lines come to the front and make a loop on the frame, also above the lines is there a oil cooler? i looked up there and seen a round object about a foot long ending at the oil filter, i can not see if the lines are leaking or if it is a oil cooler leaking if i have one. the truck has 259k and has never had a leak before and would like to fix it myself and not take it to the dealer any help would be great and thanks in advance

yes you do have an oil cooler and it is not uncommon for the o rings at the ends of the cooler to leak. not to hard to do just very messy!
