oil cooler replacement

i am replacing my oil cooler and egr and have gotten to the point of taking the oil cooler housing off but wondering if the coolant will flood the oil cooler housing and get into the oil. is it required to drain the block before removing the cooler? to this point of taking everything apart i havent really had any coolant leak out but can see is in the housing where it fills the oil cooler

Of course you drop the coolant to do an oil cooler r&r. You have to pull the intake do you not? That reservoir goes straight to the hpop so it will already be too late if you flooded it with coolant for an oil change to save you. You should remove the oil there anyways and replace the screen.
