My first suggestion would be new gaskets front and back of the cooler line. Check ronayers.com pic (http://www.ronayers.com/fiche/300_0040/oil_cooler/oil_cooler.cfm?man=su&groupid=4980&parent=4850) for part 15.

Did you remove the fitting?
Remember that you need two gaskets;
one between the banjo fitting and the block (or oil cooler) and another one between the bolt head and the banjo fitting. These are copper crush washers so they may only work a few times (they are supposed to only be used once) I have repaired them by cleaning them really well and plating them with solder.

also onr of the bango bolts has been stripped, not even an impact wrench has an effect on it) its a pretty big bolt (bout an inch) and its hollow so reverse drilling it out will probally have no effect as well. Its not the one that was leaking but i wanna get a new one anyway. Normally its 14mm should i keep on banging it with a impact hammer thats 13mm? otherwise im out of ideas to take it out. any suggestions.

Stick the thinnest screwdriver you have under it and push outwards as you unscrew it (optionally cut the washer under it to give you more pry-room). Or if it's not leaking, leave it in place and be glad that it's not leaking.

No gasket sealer. Always use a torque wrench.
