oil cooler removal- couple Q's

So I'm pretty comfee with pulling the intake manifold cause I have done it once before but the oil cooler replace is a new game for me.

Any tips or tricks?

read a little and everyone says before you pull the oil cooler, CLEAN the valley real good and pile up rags to catch the quart of oil that will come out. Any tips on this for catching oil?

Also, I read to suck out the remaining oil and clean real good where the cooler sat, in the HPOP vally. I will replace the HPOP screen too. Should I put oil back in the HPOP valley? before I drop the new rebuilt cooler? Heard if you overfill it can be troublesome but if you don't throw some in there it takes a while to fire up.

Thanks guys

I have read you do need to add oil to the valley. Helps with starting.

Here is a thread with many, many pictures. Comment #4 gets to pictures of the valley area.

The STC was an issue with the 05's and up. But if I remember right, the drain tube has an upgrade for the 04's.

Here is the drain tube:

I just read that I only should dump oil in the HPOP res. where the screen is and fill right to the screen level and no more. Is that true?

Again, I can only tell you what I've read.

Most who have done this have put new oil in. A tech on another forum states this:

".89qts of oil go in to the sump." And he does this on everyone.

I filled the valley up. Once the you reinstall the oil cooler it will displace it over into the HPOP passage and fill it up. Others may have better idea's. That is just what I did.

.89qts in the sump. So the sump is where the screen is?

I am sure it will make more sense once it is out, but just wanna gather as much before hand
