PostSubject: Oil Cooler Lines   Thu Mar 19, 2009 2:28 pm

Correct me if I'm wrong....I have a 96 SS and there are two lines coming for atop the oil filter and run to and fro the radiator. Can I assume theses are my engine oil cooler lines? I'm getting very little seapage from were the stainless meets the rubber hose right on the crimp. From some searches it looks like this is a common accourance. So to the question at hand...Would anyone object to me JB Welding it up for the time being? It only leaks when it is running and I'm planning to head out on the road in two weeks.

You could replace the filter mount with one from an L99 engine. That would eliminate the cooler lines all together and also give you a chance to replace the filter mount gasket which is known to be a problem every once in a while.

It's only held on by 2 bolts which are easy to get at once the filter is off.

I'd swap adapters with you but I don't have much time for my car to be down and I'd need to try to find the hoses and any misc crap too.

JB Weld will be fine.

I installed brand new oil cooler lines and in less then 3 months they started leaking, had I been in the US I would have returned them to the dealer, as they were not exactly cheap. My wagon being the families only car, and me being in Iraq my wife took it to a German mechanic who applied a JB Weld type material to the line to stop it from leaking. I can not imagine how much these lines would have cost me through the German parts store, an AC Delco thermostat was almost $50!

Fast forward three and a half years and those same lines are still on my car and don't leak.

I'm thinkin' so. I got some epoxy that is good to 200 F and I plan on wraping both fittings. Forum searches yeild people only getting like six mths out of lines, doesn't seem right. I'm totally going to switch over to the other adapter. Thanks for input!

Dorman makes the oil cooler lines. You can get them at just about any auto parts store. IIRC they are around $40.

Or you could just use an old small block oil filter adapter and delete the lines. And you get to run a big filter, too! That's what I did on my SS.

Plenty of options! Smile

Now you've got me wondering though... What the hell did I do with the newish oil cooler lines that I took off during the swap??? confused

The only place I could get them when I needed them was the dealer, Auto Zone and Advance Auto both looked at me like I was from another planet when I asked for oile cooler lines for a Buick Roadmaster. I guess I should have asked for Caprice parts.

I thought the reason for the adapter was because the big filter didn't fit all that well next to the drivers side cat?

Ha, Toomanytoyz' cats are just slight bulges in the pipes.

I usually look up the part numbers before I go the auto parts store. You never know who you are going to get behind the counter. I have used the dorman lines a few times with no problems.
