I have a mystery oil leak, and I am thinking it is coming from the rear of the motor as that is the only place I cannot see.
Just wanted to see if there was any well known issues that I should be looking for here.
I did see a few folks having an issue with the oil cooler o ring at the rear of the engine?
Just thought I would check here first to see if I could save myself some time.
Edit: I just found a YouTube video of a guy who had the entire oil cooler pulled out, and this certainly appears to be the issue. I can’t get under the car at the moment, but that oil pressure sending unit is wet with oil splatter, yet doesn’t seem to be leaking itself. I am thinking it must be that oil cooler gasket leaking above the sending unit.
Next question: How hard is it to change out? I have done rack and pinion replacements, full suspension upgrades, full exhaust changes, etc...so I assume this is doable too.
Please let me know your thoughts.
