HELP I have a leak

When I was flushing my radiator and changing my coolant I noticed there was some oil on the passenger side of the radiator. What ever that wetness was has progressed to leaving small puddles of some oil based liquid below the passenger side head light, about the size of a silver dollar after the truck sits over night. Looking through the grill you can see the whole passenger side upper corner of that front cooler is saturated in oil. I went on rockauto.com to check out what cooler this is. The unit seems to handle a combination of things; its a condensor, oil cooler (motor oil or trans fluid, it doesnt say?), and dryer assembly, the motor craft part does mention its also a power steering cooler. So......what is this oil drip??? I'm wondering if the cooler is shot or do I just have a leaky fitting. Regardless of what it is, it is going to be a PIA to get to the side of that upper corner. It's looking like I have to pull the head lights and grill out to get to it.
ANY IDEAS? Throw it on out there.

Well I have it figured out. The top of the condensor doubles as a power steering fluid cooler. I checked the power steering fluid reservior and it was super low. However the lines go in and out of the condensor from the drivers side. My leak is on the top passenger side corner so Im guessing the condensor has been comprimised. A friend who works at a dealer told me I should bring it to the shop because of the special equipment I would need for the A/C system. At this point I have a vacation planned and not a whole lot of spare cash; so I'm going to give it a shot of the Bars Leaks power steering treatment. Hopefully that will slow it down for a while.
