What year ? F350 4wd? Check hose connections first, then mounting bolts will dictate ease of replacement.

Blew an oil line while driving. replaced it, added oil. car started right up prob is auto trans would not engage in any gear. no previous problem. does low oil press affect the trans??


Blew an oil cooler line or a transmission cooler line? Low transmission fluid would keep it from moving. Trying to drive it to long with transmission fluid about empty, would burn up the transmission. Oil pressure won't affect the transmission.

Why my bad motor in escape didnt have oil cooler and replacement did?


Could be a mod after market, or a change duiring production and you go the other style engine. Not a bad thing to have, will keep the engine running much cooler, prolong oil and engine life, and a bit better gas mileage.

Oil cooler blew up.. what does it cost to replace?


Why did it blow up...corrosion or overpressure.? If it was overpressure you need a new oil pump too.

If it was corrosion you need someone to check to see if the oil filter mount is okay to receive a new cooler and 'O' ring.

Usually the 'O' ring gets hard and cracks letting oil escape. 'O' lives between the oil cooler and filter mount. Most shops can do the job and cost depends where you are but assume around $200 or so
labour and same for parts .. I did one recently and job ran $290.00 but I didn't need to check oil pressure or change oil pump because 'O' ring had split.

Common problem with oil cooler is internal corrosion and oil and coolant mixing.Results in Mayonnaise on the dip stick and oil filler cap..corrosion is caused by infrequent coolant changes and/or wrong coolant or too little coolant antifreeze.

Use a Prestone Universal Antifreeze for yours.

When did Ford Make it manditory to change out Oil Cooler when replacing EGR Cooler on F-250 or warranty would be void on that EGR Cooler?


They do this because if the oil cooler is partialy blocked up then the coolant flow into the EGR cooler will be restricted and will cause the new cooler to fail. The leading cause of EGR cooler failure is from overheating. either from lack of coolant flow or a bad EGR valve letting to much exhaust flow through the cooler.

Blew oil out of the water resevoir


We just had the exact same issue with our 2004 F-350 with a 6.0. The oil cooler had failed. Its an expensive fix. But less costly than a blown head gasket.

1 - does anyone know how long Ford has been having issues with EGR coolers and specifially why - if it is so well known that if you don't do the oil cooler and flush - why only in April 09 did they change...


Most mechanics that have been around for a while know to do this it's part of the maintainance of the rig. You also have to test the antifreeze's PH level to see if there is any oxidation going on so that the antifreeze can be changed and any electrolysis that is detected at that time would indicate that it needs to be flushed and o-rings replaced for the oil cooler. Most people don't do the services required until it ruins an engine. Just like the Internet add saying mechanics are charging for antifreeze and thermostat changes and transmission filter and oil changes I can testify to the fact that you don't do these two items you will lose the transmission or engine for a 100 bucks. Engine parts wear the can turns 2 times as much as the crank so if your running at 2500 RPM and drive 100,000 do the math things wear out. So we get blamed that we are pinching the public for a buck if we do the required maintains or suggest it and then when something goes wrong we get blamed for not telling them to do the service. And after ford got sued for 2 pounds of air pressure that they did not make or design they got sued for billions, you think they are going to open their mouths up unless they have to? big rigs have had to have thier oil anilized since I can remember the 60's and 70's you are just now finding out.

Our EGR Cooler was replaced in late Dec 08. Would


It has an issure you can find the date of service first recall at www.alldatadiy.com and read the Service bullitins for you unit. It affects the 2005 2006 and 2007 they are just learning of the problem you have described. Running with pitted heads can destroy your engine if the head gasket blows. And Not all fords are bad, just some things they find when trying to keep it right under the goverment thumb.
