Oil Cooler Seals

It looks like my oil cooler seals are leaking. How hard is it to pull the oil cooler to replace them? Any special tools or anything? Its on a 2002. Thanks

Also where is the best place to order the seals and gaskets?

Mine too. Grab the gaskets from diesel o-rings as they are MUCH cheaper. Process is pretty easy as long as you can get to the front bolts. Most people losen the alternator and power steering pump after removing the belt and slide it forward a little.

Most difficult part is pressing the end caps back onto the cooler. Seen photos of people doing it with body weight and a piece of wood. Regardless, i do not plan on doing it myself. Id rather pay a shop for an hours worth of labor than have to deal with the fluids in the cold. No garage here.

Nonconformist. Functionality over bling.

My three rules for 7.3l troubleshooting: 1) Replace CPS and keep a spare. 2) Replace FPR and know your fuel pressure. 3) Hook it to a scanner and check for codes.

Ford wanted 600+ to do mine. So it looks like I'm doing it myself. It seems like some peole remove all kinds of stuff and others don't. But I know the oil has to get drained. Does all of the coolant have to get drained?

Just remove the oil filter, don't drain the pan. Unless you want to change the oil at the same time, it is not necessary. Draining coolant is required.
To reassemble I use a ratchet strap, works pretty easy. Remember to put some oil on the orings.

Well the parts came in today. So it looks like I will be getting my hands dirty either tomorrow night or Saturday morning.

Well I got it done. Putting the new seals on the shaft was the worst part. And it was super messy but we had enough room to keep pushing the truck back to have fresh concrete to lay in. But sure beats paying the stealership to do it.

Bumping an old thread instead of starting a new one....

Has anyone here replaced the seals without removing the front part of the cooler?
Like this....
.....how did that work out??

I'd advise not to. Its really not difficult to get to the front housing. You dont have to pull the alt/PS bracket.

Make sure you grease up the new O-rings well so you dont pinch/roll them when pressing the housings back on. Ratchet strap works well.
