New O-Rings I believe are a good idea.I am about to replace my leaking OEM oil cooler with a new OEM oil cooler. Do I need to purchase anything else beside the oil cooler such as new bushings, etc?
The job looks fairly easy but I am not sure if there are other little parts required?
Thanks. Yeah, looks pretty easy. I am going to do it myself. Just need to buy the proper pinch clamp for the oil lines.New O-Rings I believe are a good idea.
Requires removing your bumper. My indy shop quoted me about 1.5 hours of labor max...although another indy shop quoted me 2.5 hours max.
Yes. Mine doesn't appear to leak from the fittings but rather a crack. At least that's what my shop said. I will just replace it. Parts Geek has them for around $330 for OEM.have you considered getting your new as yet uncontaminated cooler welded (brazed?) together where as i understand it the pressed in fittings leak? I was toying with buying a new one and doing this to be ready when mine starts to leak...
Mine leaked from a crack as well. My indy shop tried applying epoxy to it (they don't have the material to weld aluminum), and it was a good band-aid for a few weeks, but eventually it started leaking again. Ended up just buying a new OEM oil cooler from parksgeek as well.Yes. Mine doesn't appear to leak from the fittings but rather a crack. At least that's what my shop said. I will just replace it.

"Should" is always the key word. :biggrinbounce: Thanks for the heads up on leaving the lights in place. Hate messing with those.New o rings should come with the cooler. The bumper can be removed in less than 10 minutes. No need to remove headlights. Easy job and no other parts should be needed. You'll be amazed at all the dirt and stuff behind the oil cooler. Great time to clean it out.
