Burning oil


That is a possibility. although the most likely cause is worn rings and/or cylinder walls. The excessive white residue is caused by the oil being burned in the cylinder.

Win i start the car and look under the hood, there is oil coming out of a box that is, on the side of the block. But above the oil filter ?? . How do i fix that, is it a gasket or what ??


That is the engine oil cooler. There is a 'O' ring between it and the oil filter mount. They harden and crack.

Ask your dealer for the large Oil Cooler 'O' Ring.

Remove oil filter. Remove exposed pipe nut holding oil cooler to housing. If nessacary, drain coolant so you can disconnect coolant hoses from cooler or catch coolant as hoses disconnected. Swing oil cooler away and remove old 'O' ring.

Place new 'O' ring with grease on oil cooler it to hold it in place and reassemble. Tighten oil filter pipe nut to around 18 ft lbs .

Refit oil filter. Refit coolant hoses and top of oil and coolant.
Run engine to check for leaks and allow to cool. Top of coolant to COLD level if required.

You will need hose clamp pliers and wrench for oil cooler pipe nut. Pliers can be obtained from most parts stores.

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.

How do you get the oil cooler line loose at the filter housing to replace the o ring on that line on 4x4 1996 gmc k1500


there should be 1 nut and stud holding the lines to the housing. I would suggest replacing the upper o-ring for the oil filter adapter at the same time. The oil cooler hoses are also prone to leak, if so, you want to replace evreything while you are there.

Need instructions on how to replace lower ball joints on a 1996 gmc jimmy 4x4


There is a large amount of stored energy in the spring. you can easily be seriously hurt. If you are asking this question, get a shop to do the job. It absolutely, positively must be done correctly or you risk loss of control of the vehicle.
