Thumbs down oil cooler housing leak

I have a 1997 PS w/190000. it runs ok when cold but misses when warmed up.But my main problem is that the oil cooler housing rusted through and is leaking oil.Where would be the best part depot to go to where the parts people know what they are talking about? Perferably not a Ford car dealer but if need be then ok...........gofastpilot

Oil cooler leak too!



Mine is leaking from the forward oil cooler seal. Anyone have the process for replacing the seals available. The manuals are pretty useless in explaining this stuff.

pretty easy, just drain the coolant. remove the oil filter (you'll probably just want to change the oil when your done), if your going to have it out might as well do both ends. Remove the block heater if it has one. remove the bolts. drop it out of there. the end caps should wiggle off. install new o-rings, put ends back on, install new gaskets between cooler and block, install bolts, install block heater (put pipe sealant on threads), install new oil filter, drain oil, refill oil, refill coolant. and crank er rup. This is all from memory, so read a manual for proper procedure and toque specs. I would probably go to an International dealer for parts.

parts needed: International part #'s
1824736C1 2) o-rings
1824735C1 2) o-rings
1831666C1 1) gasket
1831665C1 1) gasket

I learned about this genuine ford parts dealer from my friend. It's an on-line store but I think their products are good since my friend has been subscribing to this site since 2007.

I did not notice the date but the site would be helpful to those who might encounter the same problem in the future.
