Re:


Thanks.

I got the O ring through Nissan, have a look at my two posts above yours with part numbers and details.

All still holding up well and no more oil leak!

Cheers

Re:


I have had a small oil leak for a couple of months and today I decided to put the car on ramps, and found the oil cooler leaking.

So let me get this right the 2 seals I need for the square oil cooler are 21304-JA00A & 21304-JA06A

Re:


Thanks for the part numbers re: t31.

I went through my local nissan spare parts who were absolutely useless. Managed to school him on the right part numbers. Said he could get the parts from Japan, not overnight but in 4 to 5 weeks. Found genuine items on ebay via us (altima and sentra) for a little more but max 2 weeks away sent priority.

The stench of burning synthetic is too much for a 5 week delay...

Happy to post results.

One more tbing. Is it worth puting some silastic on the cooler mating surfaces? Will this prohibit the ability to properly "sandwich" the plates, or is the o ring sufficient (as it is designed this way but fails).

I wouldnt use silastic. If your surfaces are clean, dry and smooth it should seal fine.

Re: fixing an oil cooler leak


Managed to change out the o ring and gasket

Fiddly but easy job to do and NO LEAKS

As per Artymr2's post below I kept the coolant lines attached.

there were 2 issues in doing this

1 I had caked on old oil varnish between the sandwich plates that needed cleaning. a thumbnail and carby clean got it but it was a bit painful. added a bit of time to the job

2 is cracking the 4 bolts for the sandwich plate if you take the cooler off the block first is again difficult - doable but painful nonetheless

I didn't want to drop all my coolant so I did it that way. I would suggest taking it out completely will make life much easier, but I only recently did an entire coolant flush.

thanks for the info on here guys, saved me a good $500 in parts alone and all it took was 2 hours, a few rags, $40 part from over seas, can of carby clean, and a loss of about 100mm of oil

also sandwich plate bolts are 10mm and block bolts are 12mm

Re:


Good work! Interesting info. On mine I found the 4 bolts quite loose (Compressed o ring took of tension). The top plate was quite clean, a wipe with metho and it was like new.

I did use one of those o ring ratchet spanners with flexible end (flips 90 degrees to spanner) which made it easy. Using normal spanners or sockets would be a pain.

Cheers
