Oil presure problem in 04 passat 1.8 litre hav cagedoil pump, pmp screen and pure switch where else can i go


Did you change the oil filter? Make sure you use the large one for the TDi. I had the same problem after replacing my oil pump and cleaning the pick up screen. Turns out it was just the synthetic oil washing the gunk out of the motor and quickly clogging the oil filter. You can verify the oil pump output by connecting an after market oil pressure gauge to the forward left top corner of the oil cooler/filter mount where you will find a removable screw giving you access to a port leading directly to the oil pump. It is awkward to remove then install a line to a pressure gauge but be glad it is at least there so you can verify output pressure. The fitting on the rearward side of the oil cooler/filter mount that has the turbo oil supply line is a good place to verify engine oil pressure with a gauge.
Change your filter first then do what I did and cut the old filter open to see all the junk that may be clogging your filter.
Also, do yourself and us a favor by using spell checker and proof read before posting.

High pressure oil cooler lines


No easy way. It is a pain job. Correct size wrenches most important. No adjustables. Fan and shroud and underpan removed helps. Most of the time you need to remove the front motor motor mount to get a good purchase on the front housing fitting. Most critical is to use two wrenches on the cooler, making sure that the fittings that goes into the cooler do not move , leaks will occur and if you try tighten the fitting, you will crack the housing boss and ruin the cooler.

Removing the front mount requires holding the engine up with a holder of hoist. When installing, do not overtighten at the oil cooler.

How do you replace the transmission cooler on my 89 oldsmobile cutlass supream


Your trans cooler is located inside one of the radiator tanks and would be expensive to replace.
You can either replace the radiator with new or used or cut the lines and install an external cooler as is used for towing. If the cooler in the radiator is leaking, you need to flush the system to remove as much oil as possible or it will cause hoses to soften and fail. Also wise to change trans fluid as well.
Always use double clamps when running rubber lines for cooler so they don't slide apart under pressure.

How do you replace the radiator in a 1997 Ford Escort?


Check this procedure to REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(1.8L and 1.9L Engines)

CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Place fender covers on the aprons.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Drain the cooling system.
  4. Remove the right and left-hand front splash shields.
  5. Disconnect the lower radiator hose from the radiator.
  6. If equipped with an automatic transaxle, disconnect the lower oil cooler line from the radiator. Remove the oil cooler line brackets from the bottom of the radiator.
  7. Lower the vehicle.
  8. If equipped with an automatic transaxle and air conditioning, remove the seal located between the radiator and the fan shroud.
  9. If equipped with an automatic transaxle, remove the upper oil cooler line from the radiator.
  10. If equipped with the 1.8L engine, remove the resonance duct from the radiator mounts.
  11. Unplug the cooling fan motor electrical connector and the cooling fan thermoswitch electrical connector.
  12. If necessary, remove the cooling fan thermoswitch for clearance.
  13. Remove the three fan shroud attaching bolts and remove the shroud assembly by pulling it straight up.
  14. On some 1.9L engines equipped with A/C, remove the upper radiator air deflector from the radiator and set it aside.
  15. Remove the upper radiator hose and the two upper radiator mounts.
  16. If equipped, remove the fluid cooler tube bracket bolts and coolant overflow hose from the radiator.
  17. Remove the radiator from the engine compartment by lifting it straight up.

  1. Remove the fan motor, blade and shroud assembly.
  2. Raise the car and support it with safety stands.

  7. Unfasten the four radiator bracket bolts and remove the radiator from the engine compartment.
To install:
  1. Install the radiator and tighten the bracket bolts.
  2. If equipped with an automatic transaxle, connect the upper oil cooler outlet tube.
  3. Install the radiator cap and connect the radiator overflow hose.
  4. Connect the upper radiator hose, then raise the car and support it with safety stands.
  5. If equipped with an automatic transaxle, tighten the oil cooler tube bracket bolts.
  6. Connect the lower radiator hose and if equipped with an automatic transaxle, the lower oil cooler outlet tube.
  7. Fill the cooling system with the specified amount and mixture of coolant.
  8. Install the splash shield and tighten the bolts.

Oil cooler lines leaking. Motor losing all the oil within 10 minutes.


Inspect where the oil is leaking from the oil cooler line, it's common for the oil to leak from the remote oil cooler line adapter bolt on the engine block. You can remove the two bolts one at a time and place a oil drain plug washer with some RTV silicon to ensure that it will not leak.

The other common place for the oil line to leak is from where the rubber lines mate to the aluminum line from the remote oil filter line adapter. This is also a simple fix but you're going to need a drumlin tool cut off the old compression clamp that was press fit. Cut off the old compression fitting ring, use cation that you only cut off the ring and replace it with a new compression clamp. Make sure you use compression clamps and not a hose clamp.

This is the best way to fix the oil leak from the adapter line to the rubber hose line, to replace the whole line with the new adapter is expensive and i believe your have to disconnect the engine mount to raise the engine to clear enough room to install the new line along the frame.

Good luck and don't use any engine oil stop leak, it will damage your oil pressure relieve valve and that's one extra thing you don't need to replace.

Do I need to pull my motor in my 2001 Dodge durango to replace the oil pan gasket?


  • Jack up the front of the Dodge Durango, and install a jack stand. Block the rear wheels.
  • Remove the oil plug and let the oil drain into a pan, being sure to remove as much of the old oil as possible.
  • Loosen the bolts holding the oil pan with a socket wrench, and remove the bolts with your fingers. Remove the oil filter, starter motor, cooler lines, oil level sensor, heated oxygen sensor connector and exhaust y-pipe, and then take off the oil pan.
  • Scrape off the old gasket with a thin putty knife, being very careful not to scrape the surface. Be sure all of the old gasket is removed, then wipe the surface with solvent. Spread a bit of oil on the surface to promote adhesion, and apply the new gasket.
  • Replace the oil pan, exhaust y-pipe, heated oxygen sensor connector, oil level sensor, cooler lines and starter motor, and install a new oil filter.
  • Raise the vehicle slightly with the jack and slide out the jack stand before lowering the vehicle and removing the jacks.
  • Fill the engine with the appropriate amount of oil. Check the level with the dipstick to be sure you have the right amount.
Good luck and hope this helps.
