My 2008 Chevy express van 25004.8L has a p code on the tranny that is saying tranny oil running hot and an O2 sensor but tranny place says I need rebuild to fix issue huh wtf?


just add a tranny cooler,if your tranny gives you problems like not shifting etc,then it needs a rebuild,,,,the tranny fluid running hot is normal and can be fixed with a tranny cooler kit, Derale Series 8000 Plate Fin Transmission Cooler Kit Barb Inlets Class III... ,its a van,it is going to get hot,get a kit and hook it up,and see the difference,replace all o2 sensors while you are at it,they are cheap and if 1 goes then the others will go,and then you only have to be under it one time,not a couple times,here is info i found;
Transmission coolers are not vehicle specific, but there are ones that are recommended for certain engine sizes. What I did was look up the recommended coolers for the 4.8 liter engine for the 2008 Silverado to get an idea of what we recommend for that engine size.

The most popular cooler for the 4.8 is the Derale Transmission Cooler, # D13502, and GM fitting, # D13035. The cooler is listed for a load of up to 3,500 pounds. Before deciding on a cooler though it will be a good idea to look at the dimensions, listed on the product page below the description, to determine the best place to mount the cooler in the engine compartment.

I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation and a link to our FAQ article on transmission coolers for you to view.

Engine oil coolers would also be beneficial to extend the life of oil lubricated parts. The kits work well and from the information that I have received from Derale in the past, any restricted flow is so minute that it may not even be able to be detected.

I recommend the Derale Tube-Fin Engine Oil Cooler Kit, # D15501. The adapter has a 2-3/4 inch o-ring diameter which is used on the vast majority of GM applications. It also has multiple threads to ensure proper thread size. Again, you will want to check the dimensions of the cooler and compare that to the space under the hood of your 2008 Chevy Express Van ahead of time.

Both the transmission cooler and oil cooler come with all the necessary hardware and parts for installation. Current pricing information is available on each of the product pages.

I have a 2008 Nissan Altima and I took it today to have any oil change. I was told that I have a "bad oil cooler". I am female and I have very little knowledge of a cars structure unfortunately. What...


This sounds kind of odd. Most cars don't have an oil cooler. Usually trucks (especially with towing package) have an oil cooler. If the car is an automatic then you have a cooler for the transmission "oil" but it is usually part of the radiator. I would look around on line and first see if you can find a Nissan site that mentions this vehicle having an oil cooler. Unless your car is leaking oil or oil pressure reads way off center (if you have oil gauge in dash) I would be thinking you are not getting a correct answer. If car shows no major issue with oil I wouldn't be spending money on fixing an "oil" issue. Especially if car did not come with a dedicated oil cooler.

Transmission is leaking from my 2008 ford escape. The VIN number does show that it was manufactured in Kansas, but because i am in Canada the recall did not include canadian owners.


What do you need? I would cantact Ford of Canada in back of owner manual with letter, not phone, if issue is the same. TEXT:

In some of the affected vehicles, the transmission fluid cooler may develop a crack in the tube below the right hand (RH) mounting bracket from thermal and vibration fatigue. This may lead to a small transmission fluid leak and possible rough / harsh shifts. Dealers are to inspect the transmission fluid cooler for a grommet and possible fluid leak below the RH mounting bracket. Based on the results of the inspection, dealers will perform one of the following service

actions:

INSPECTION

1. Using a suitable light, look through the radiator grille and inspect the transmission fluid cooler mounting bracket for a grommet behind the mounting bolt. See Figure 1 and Figure 2.


Inspection Result Service Action

Grommet present - No further action required


Grommet not present and transmission fluid cooler not leaking - Install transmission fluid cooler mounting bracket


Grommet not present and transmission fluid cooler leaking - Install new transmission fluid cooler.

Where is the water pump


Water Pump REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 5VZ-FE Engines Fig. 1: The water pump is located on the front of the engine block, behind the timing cover 93163p92.jpg
Fig. 2: Once the retainers are removed, pull the pump away from the block 93163p97.jpg
Fig. 3: Scrape any remaining gasket material from the block before installing the new pump 93163p98.jpg
Fig. 4: Water pump mounting bolt locations 93163p88.jpg
Fig. 5: Front view of the water pump and thermostat housing 93163p99.jpg
WARNING
This procedure requires the removal of the timing belt. This is an extensive procedure requiring precision work, particularly at assembly. For more information, refer to Timing Belt Removal and Installation. Do not attempt to remove the belt without consulting the procedure; extreme engine damage may occur. Fig. 6: Apply sealant to the areas shown 86823pi7.gif
Fig. 7: A and B bolt locations 86823pi8.gif
Fig. 8: Exploded view of the water pump arrangement — 5VZ-FE engine 93163g19.gif
  1. Drain the cooling system.
  2. Remove the timing belt. For additional information, please refer to the following topic(s): Timing Belt Removal and Installation.
  3. Remove the idler pulley.
  4. Remove the thermostat.
  5. Disconnect the oil cooler hose from the pump.
  6. Remove the seven bolts and the tension spring bracket and then remove the water pump. To install:
  7. Clean all parts well. It is good practice to carefully clean all threaded openings, especially those exposed to coolant to remove rust and scale so at assembly, an accurate torque reading is obtained. This is important since gasketless applications like this depend on even clamp loads from the fasteners to avoid distortion and leaks. Remove any old sealer (Toyota calls it packing) from the pump and mounting area of the engine. Keep oil off the mating areas.
  8. Apply Formed In Place Gasket (FIPG) sealer to the pump-to-block mating surface and then tighten the bolts marked A in the illustration to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm). Tighten those marked B to 14 ft. lbs. (20 Nm). NOTE: The parts must be installed within 5 minutes of application of the sealant. Otherwise you must remove and reapply the sealer.
  9. Connect the oil cooler hose.
  10. Install the thermostat with a new gasket.
  11. Install the idler pulley.
  12. Install the timing belt.
  13. Install the drive belts and adjust the tension.
  14. Refill the cooling system and check for leaks.
2RZ-FE and 3RZ-FE Engines
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. If equipped with an air conditioning compressor or power steering pump drive belts, it may be necessary to loosen the adjusting bolt, remove the drive belt(s) and move the component(s) out of the way.
  4. Remove the fluid coupling with the fan and water pump pulley.
  5. Remove the water pump. To install:
  6. Clean the gasket mounting surfaces.
  7. Install the replacement water pump using a new gasket.
  8. Install the water pump pulley and fluid coupling with the fan.
  9. Install the removed engine drive belts.
  10. Fill the cooling system.
  11. Connect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check for leaks.
  12. Bleed the cooling system.

    Need the torque spec on the acorn nuts that fasten the top of the springer front end. They sit right behind the headlamp assy. The bike is a 2008 Harley Davidson Screaming Eagle Springer.


    I have a slightly older springer, but they are probably the same. The shop manual says in reference to the acorn nuts on top of the spring restraints, "Tighten acorn nuts to 30-35 ft-lbs torque."

    Just bought 1976 504 diesel xd2 type engine.drove it home 200 miles and oil pressure light came on,and went off when I slowed down. when I changed the oil it had small amount of coolant in the oil. suspect...


    Oh yes indeed. Block sealer will plug it up, but then it will plug EVERTHING up. Not a good idea to go the block sealer rout my friend. Most likely a head gasket needs replaced BUT, before you do ANYTHING else pal, most likely it has an oil cooler in the system on the block somewhere. Pull that oil cooler and pressure test it to see if that is where coolant is getting into the oil. I've been there Bro, and that's just what it was. Luck toya Bud.
