Hi All,
Got a nice 2.2DTi Espace, and it drips oil like a tap. The oil cooler was replaced with a s/h one by the P.O, and the fitter didn't use new gaskets.

The "joints" appear to be dripping, can somone tell me if the pipes to cooler connections can be replaced easily, or is it an "oil change" job??


Many thanks.

should just be rubber 'o' rings on the end of the pipes. Replace those and you should be good to go!

yep he is correct there are no gaskets just 2 o rings and they fall off easily during removal and fitting it is possible 1 is missing !!

undo the 13mm nut in between the 2 pipes and catch any oil that comes out wont be a great deal but will be some then check for the rubbers if they are there clean them and check for cracks then try again better still fit new ones

Other place that can leak is the oil pressure switch same area but further up
