A transmission oil cooler is a small, finned radiator that circulates warm oil to stabilize the temperature of the transmission. It is normally placed in front of the primary engine coolant radiator, directly in the path of incoming cool air. Tests have proven that a 20 degree drop in transmission fluid temperature can double the life of automatic transmission components.---------------------------------------------------------------------------

check where the oil is coming from first. check around the oil filter for leaks. if from the front of the motor check power steering and hoses for leaks . Around the radiator check for hoses to the transmission cooler . Check for leaks around loose sump plug. check for oil leaks from rocker cover gaskets running down the block at the back

I have a 2000 beetle turbo and just notices it is leaking oil from around the plug which is tight and seeping transmission fluid. Is this going to be a costly fix?


OIL LEAK AROUND THE SPARKS PLUGS COULD BE LEAKING VALVE COVER GASKETS ALLOWING OIL TO SEEP BY GASKET FLOW DOWN AROUND SPARK PLUGS.TRANSMISSION LEAK IS NOT VERY EXPENSIVE LONG AS TORQUE CONVERTER SHAFT SEAL NOT LEAKING WHICH TRANSMISSION HAS TO DROPPED OUT TO REPLACE SHAFT SEAL.IF TRANSMISSION LEAK AROUND FRONT AXLE SEAL IT MAY COST A LITTLE.BUT PAN GASKET LEAK OR OIL COOLER LINES WONT COST TOO MUCH NOT HARD TO GET TO REPAIR.PHONE AROUND GET PRICE CHECKS.

97 vw golf 1.8 there is a squar box where oil filter fastens to. oil is leaking from top of this box. what is this box and how i fix the leak?


The box is the oil cooler. The oil is most likely leaking from the oil cooler seal. The oil cooler is the square aluminum piece that the oil filter screws onto. To replace the seal, remove the filter, remove both coolant hoses that attach to the cooler, remove the nut that secures the cooler to the block and slide the cooler off the tube. Replace the rubber o-ring seal which is available at the VW dealer. It's inexpensive. Replace everything in reverse order. Good luck

You need to remove the filter and unbolt the oil cooler assembly from the block. There is a large O ring that seals the cooler assembly to the engine block. Replace it. Also examine or replace the fittings where the lines attach to the side of the cooler. It is bound to be one of those issues.

Not all coolers look like radiators. I wouldn't think it should cost that much. Try somewhere else.
