coolant leak 96 7.3

Found a coolant leak coming from a L-shape metal pipe that one end attaches to the bottom side of motor (driver side) and radiator hose on other end.
Question ? Is there a gasket on the motor where the pipe connects and if so whats the part # or whats it called?

Sounds like maybe the oil cooler?

If the pipe runs from the oil filter housing to the front cover of the engine, that's the oil cooler. It has o rings on the round connections and a gasket where it connects to the front cover.
