I had an oil change done 2 weeks ago, now I have a leak around the oil filter. I took it back to the place who did the oil change and they say it is leaking around the oil cooler and they would have to replace it at a cost of $200.00 plus labor. Can it be fixed another way?

    You can get a second opinion. It sounds like they are recommending replacement, and maybe it just needs to be resealed. It all sounds a bit too coincidental though, I would have someone else look at it so you can get an unbiased opinion of what is needed.
