X3 on oil cooler o rings. Make sure you flush out the cooling system a few times with dawn dish soap to clean out that oil.

I meant that times 3, the other guys that had said oil cooler o rings. On the soap note, the dawn is what i have heard to use, simple green should work well too. You could also try cascade too. I just did some looking around and the cascade seems to foam way less.

I have been fighting this problem for months. We have replaced every external part that could possible cause the problem (oil cooler, timing cover gasket, etc.) finally the other day as I was going down the road the engine temp spiked. went from normal operating temp to pegged in about a minute. any thoughts
