This weekends fun under the truck

OK just got my orings in from dieselorings. Gonna do the dipstick and oil cooler this weekend. Anyone do this before and have any tips? I know not to drop the one part into the oil pan. Went to toolking and baught a new pair of needlenose vicegrips just for the job. Oil cooler has me worried though. Some places ive read youneed a press to put tube back together and some sayyou can do it with your hands with ease. Could use personal knowledge on this one.

I haven't done any of that myself Terry. I know several others have... Gene has some experience with it I believe. I will post the link to this thread in our chat thread and I am sure one of the guys will chime in.

I hear ya, definitely not a good idea to start something like that if you can't guarantee you will have time to finish it.

Agreed I was told the dipstick is an easy job maybe an hour. But from what I hear the oil cooler can take all day. So Ill give myself 3 days to do it next weekend. Not like i need the truck for a daily driver I have 3 autos. Just cant drive the comaro in the snow

The oil cooler isn't too bad. Sometimes you do have to loosen up the drivers side engine mount and lift the engine up an inch or two but other wise use a soft hammer and beat the ends off the cooler. Make sure you get both o-rings off both sides and then get some grease and coat the o-rings and put some inside the ends too. Then take a little transmission fluid over top of the o-rings too. It makes it really slick. Then more or less sit on the oil cooler until the ends pop on. I only way 160 lbs and it sometimes take a little jumping but I can get them to pop on. Biggest thing to check is make sure the ends aren't cracked for the cooler and on the block around where the cooler mounts make sure you block isn't cracked. There was a problem with the blocks cracking around the rear mounting spot for the cooler.
