The oil cooling hose provides a means of circulating and cooling the transmission and oil. This hose runs from various parts of the radiator in the front engine compartment, and without the air cooler hose, the engine or transmission would get too hot to run smoothly and burn out. A leak in an oil cooling hose needs to be addressed immediately. Here are some steps which mechanic can take in a few hours to replace an oil cooling hose.
Step 1: Locate the oil cooling hose.
Make sure you know where any wires or hoses are before you start disconnecting them.
Follow the oil cooling hose on the lubricator or oil pan and trace its route to the radiator.
You may only find single or double lanes, depending on the type of vehicle you have.
Step 2: Disconnect the radiator hose.
On the radiator side of the oil cooler, the hose connection slides a drain tray below.
Loosen the coupling with a wrench and turn it counterclockwise.
Prepare for the oil to leak out of the hose, remember that it may be a bit warm to the touch.
Step 3: Disconnect the oil pan hose.
According to the location of the pipeline, disconnect the pipeline from the oil sump or pipeline, use a wrench to loosen the coupling and remove the pipeline.
Step 4: Remove the wire clip.
If the oil cooling hose remains secure with the wire clip, use a small sleeve to remove the retaining bolt. The piping of the air cooler should be detached from the rack and clamps, which hold it in place.
Step 5: Remove the oil cooling hose.
One of the most difficult parts of replacing the oil cooler line is removing it from the engine compartment. The oil line will be woven in and around different places, please make sure you do not cut it when you remove the line, you may need a free time one day.
Step 6: Install new oil cooling hose.
Once the old oil cooling hose has been removed, clean the connection point.
The oil wire is then passed through the engine parts and connected to the wire frame.
Attach it to the wire clip and drive it in the bolt with a socket wrench to secure it in place.
Step 7: Connect the circuit to the coupling.
Align the radiator fittings and terminals with the new hose and connect them by thread the fittings to the line. Screw them tight with a wrench and make sure they’re not too tight.
Step 8: Refill oil.
Once the oil cooling hose is connected, you need to replenish the reservoir with any oil that leaks out. Fill up and start the car. This will allow the oil to circulate through the oil cooling hose and check to make sure there are no leaks along the line. Tighten some more couplings, if any.
