What everyone else said - change the rubber/copper/alloy bits - they are cheap and new ones work!

Thanks Doug, I thought it was odd. I knew it was some kind of oil pipe but it is in the same fashion as the water pipes. The other oil pipes have either banjo connectors or in the case of the oil cooler threaded connectors. If there is no pressure then that explains what I'm seeing.

I've replaced my oil cooler with an after market one, as I have with the water cooler too.
