She sprung another leak this one dont know how to fix

Well looks like my smoke wagon sprung another leak. It is leaking on the driver side of the block. It looks like it is comeing from a cooling tube that connects the back of block to front. Is there a seal there or seal kit to fix and stop this leak?

That would be the oil cooler. Drain the oil, drain the coolant, remove the oil filter, pull the block heater, remove the 3 bolts at each end of the tube, and wiggle it out. The O-Rings to reseal it are about 40 bucks from ford, but there aren't a whole lot of other places to get them. Now if the cooler is cracked (maybe let it freeze or something), that's a $330 part. I have one that's ok (thought mine was bad) that I'd let go for a hundred or so.

i agree. plus if you pull the cooler go ahead and get the 4 o-rings that on the tube that slides into the 2 ends. i pressed my back together, not sure if you can do it with out a press but i was pretty simple to pull apart and put new seals in. now getting the cooler in and out was a little tricky

You can get a rebuild kit for the oil cooler from dieselorings.com, most likely cheaper than Ford.

Me and a buddy pulled the cooler apart, and we eventually got it fully back together using a ratchet tie down strap. Just grease the O-rings and make sure you get the ends on straight. You can probably push it back together if you have everything clean and use enough grease.

TIP!! When trying to put the ends back on use a wire wheel on the ends and the cooler tube to make the o-rings slide easier. Use assembly lube to put it back together. Make sure when you go to press it back together the ends on strait otherwise you aint getting it on lol. they get easier and easier every time i do one lol just use me and my hands!!
