1998 chevy blazer oil leak

Hi, my 1998 chevy blazer - 2WD- has a oil leak in front. a service tech told me it is from oil line ((oil cooler hose?) where the oil circulates here at a pressure of 68-90psi . he asked me for $275 to change the oil line(engine) . $143.36 for the hose as part and 120 for labor. For me it is too much for a hose. do you think i can change the oil cooler hose by myself in my garage? thank you.

My 1998 chevy blazer is stuck in 4wd hi makes clicking noise under clove box


Clove box! How cool, you can bake a ham as you drive. (sorry, couldn't resist). Noise under dash is probably because you have a vacuum leak somewhere and a blend air door is flapping. Part of 4wd system is vacuum operated. There is a vacuum can under the battery (brilliant placement, huh) and the lines to it often fail over time. Use a vacuum gauge and piece of hose, one end in ear, to listen around for a small whistle = leak.

Oil hose leak 97 4x4 Blazer


Oil cooler lines that lead to your radiator or to a cooler mounted in front of radiator.The hoses are quick couplers with o-rings so there is no way to tighten. I don't know why they would leek so often but they usualy go bad where the rubber line gets crimped to the steel line.Not sure if you can get a different oil filter block without the oil cooler line hook ups.This way you can eliminate the cooler lines,or remove the quick couplers at both ends of where your cooler lines hook up and just run hydraulic hoses in place of your coller lines.Where i live you can get hydraulic hoses made at hundreds of places but may not be so redily avalible where you are.

Oil cooler line replacement on a 1998 Suburban How to get the lines off of the oil pump


Ok...answer to the question about how to remove the oil cooler lines from the oil filter housing. Once you remove the oil cooler line, either upper or lower (Or both) from the radiator. By the way, I have a 98 GMC suburban 2wd 1500, I was able to just remove the fan housing and unbolt the fan by the four bolts behind the blade, this gave me the room to remove bottom half of fan shroud.
Once lines disconnected from radiator, there is a retainer clip that holds the hose into the nut that is screwed into the oil filter housing. I doused the nuts with WD40, then removed the clip with a screw driver. BE CAREFUL not to let the clips get away from you because it would be a pain to replace. Autozone does not carry nut nor clip!!!!! The hoses are held together by a clip and attached to a bracket as you follow the line toward the front of the truck.
Once clips are removed, tug on each line individually away from the nut screwed into the oil filter housing and wahlaa. Remove the nut and clean all the old teflon tape off with a steel brush and WD40. I reinserted the clip back into the nut and with the new oil line in my hand, pressed the line into the nut with the clip in place. This way you can see how the nut and clip lock the hose in place. Enjoy and I hope this helps you out.
Oh.....use teflon tape on the radiator treads as well as the oil filter housing threads. Install starting at the radiator housing. Snug the bolt (1' 1/16" socket) with the retainer clip inserted.

4wd service light on


From someone that has had a 2000 Blazer for 6 years now I would say return the vehicle if you can and run the other way. Blazers are VERY poor in consumer reports and I average spending almost 1000 every 2-3 months. Oil cooler lines leaking, Idler Arm, Ball Joints and Bearings (felt like I was on ice in summer), Fuel pump. What a headache. I will never buy another GM.
