The cap is rusted real bad. I have to drain the coolant to fix the oil leak. How do i get the cap off crossover tube? Is their another way to add coolant and burp air out?

try a pair of big channel lock pliers but be gentle
I tried that, even used a pipe wrench with a breaker bar attached, still won't budge.
PULL THE WHOLE ASSM OFF AND REPLACE, THE SEAL NECK WILL BE BAD ALSO
Finally got that cap off. Tried the pipe wrench and breaker bar again, this time it worked. Replaced oil filter housing gasket. Now I'm able to add coolant and no more oil leak!
