Noisy oil cooler?

Hello,

Is the oil cooler the radiator looking thing mounted on the front of the passenger frame rail?

If so one of my connections makes noise when idling. It is very annoying, if I move it ever so slightly it stops. Any ideas on how to fix this?

You are correct sir! The oil cooler would be on the driver side mated to the engine. About the size of an elementary school Lunch box. On the inside of the driver side frame rail is a Mini cooler, that's the fuel cooler. What you are looking at is the trans cooler.

Ya man soo the bottom line is very noisy at idle. If i touch it with my hand it is silent.

Could i be low on fluid? I am going to check that in a lil bit.

Also check the mounting bolts. If it stops when you touch it, it might just be loose?

Good idea! By the time they get done with it, your gonna need a new cooler and God knows what else! Plus when you work on it yourself you learn more about your Truck.

Hey man I found a bolt up the cooler lines on the block of the motor that needed to be snugged down.

No more noise so far!
