2000 F250 7.3 Oil Leak

My 7.3 started to leak oil sometimes. The best we can find it, is on the drivers side ahead of the oil filter. There is a u-shaped tube that goes above the front cross member and then into the block. The cross member is wet. Can some one tell me what this u-shaped tube is? And can I fix it myself?
Thanks in advance,
Ron

Oil leak is from the oil cooler. Mechanic could not find the leak in his shop. I'm in Illinois. When left sit out overnight, about a 70 degree differencial, the leak showed up.
