That's why they make metal ones. Hope that's what you replaced them with.
Sorry for the technical oversight Sienile, it seems that I had 2 browsers running as I was posting here and shopping for my little red rocket some parts.That's why they make metal ones. Hope that's what you replaced them with.
Thanks for the heads up!120k is about the mileage the oil coolers like to fail at. They have all metal versions of those too. Might want to get you one on order for when yours springs a leak, or do it before then.
From what I have learned on this forum there seems to be two modes of failure for the oil cooler. First is a multiple answer, leaks caused by enthusiastic techs tightening the oil filter cap way too much or competent people tightening it correctly and the plastic just getting fatigued. Second is the seals getting old and brittle and start to leak. Third is the plastic just gets stresses from heat and pressure and begins to leak.Thanks for the heads up!
I knew the oil cooler was plastic too, but didn't know it's failure was any kind of predictable.
