Oil cooler leaking..quick question

Changed my oil today, got under the car and noticed the oil pan covered with oil, along with the oil filter. Im assuming its the oil cooler that is leaking as there is a TSB on this. If you underneath the car, the back of the oil cooler, the line towards the rear it looks like the leak is coming from as is there drops of oil on it.

The problem must of just happened in the last 1500 miles which is the last time I was under there. So the people who had the TSB done did you get your car back the same day? My dealer cant get me in until next wednesday which seems a little long, especially with the cooler leaking.

If they have the part it should take less then 30 min to replace the gaskets. I have done 2 or 3 and it takes longer to set the rack .

Got my oil cooler leak fixed 2 months ago and now the oil pan gasket was leaking. Brought it in to the dealer and they replaced the pan gasket! These oil leaks are just unacceptable for a brand new car. I never owned a car that had 2 different oil leaks except for the '84 Buick I had with 100,000 miles on it! What the hell?

THanks guys, seems like it will be a tossup if the problem is actully fixed...

dropped it off at the dealer this morn, told the service guy it looks like its coming from the oil cooler, so im playing the waiting game now..hope they dont say anything about my mods (tune/headers)...they shouldnt since there is a TSB anyway.
