Bad oil leak

Replaced oil cooler thinking that was the problem, got truck running and oil is pouring out somewhere near the oil cooler, it's above the oil cooler. Idont think it's a crack because it wouldn't be pouring out, something has to be blown but I don't know.. It pours right onto the tire rods and onto ground...Help!!

Get a mechanics mirror and a flashlight and have a look with the engine running. You can see around and under the HPOP with the mirror.

Would it cause it to pour out? I mean like a puddle in 15 secs of running

Take your belt off. Pull your accessory drive brackets away from the front of the motor on which ever side it's leaking from. Then start it up and look behind the brackets. There is a big plug in the front and rear of the cylinder head in the high pressure oil rail. These have been known to leak and make a big puddle real fast.



The plug is the big one right in the middle of the pic.
