new OFHG needs to be oiled or not?

Just replaced the OFHG, I realized I left a tiny bit of engine oil at where the gasket sits. Is it okay if the gasket is oiled, like the oil filter gasket? Or it needs to be super clean?

They are to be installed clean but I also imagine a little bit of oil wont really hurt it.

I think you'll be fine, I wouldn't worry about it.

Don't worry about it. If you used Elring gasket, you'll be taking it apart again within months to a year anyways.

I have a 2011 Bmw 335i e90 N55

I went in and did my spark plugs, and decided to change my oil. But before that I replaced my oil filter housing gasket. After I did all of that and set the car on the ground, i noticed I still had a small leak. So I let the car idle for a few minutes to let the oil heat up and run through the engine. Suddenly the oil leak got significantly worse. There one oil all over the front end of my engine. And on my hood and a little puddle of oil building next to the oil filter. I lost about 1 quart or 2 of oil. So after this I realized it was my oil cooler gasket. But now my problem is my car won't start i got a warning to turn off the car due to low oil so I did. Then when I went turn on the car again it didn't start. Just clickes and the dashbroad flickers then stop a second later. Any ideas on my my car won't start?
