Hello all, sorry, I didnt want to revive an old thread and couldnt find any answers. Hopefully they are stupid questions and we can move on...for now
14 LUZ 107,000 miles. oil leaking from the oil cooler area. The plan is simple. replace the oil cooler/filter assembly and both hoses. now, I looked at the procedure in Alldata and it states that the seals themselves are not available to purchase, if they are bad, the entire assembly needs to be replaced. it states to clean and inspect the seal area is all. Is that accurate? seems like a very serviceable item. ideas? help? experiences?
secondly are the infamous plastic hoses. i have read here about reusing the connectors coupled with 5/8" coolant line. anyone have any photos of how those clips are removed or heard anything about the longevity of that mod? thanks for any input.
