Paranoid about Oil Cooler Line failure!
Well, I have read another alarming post yesterday about one of you that huts had another oil cooler line failure. This morning, I thought that I would put the Oil Pressure monitor up on the DIC while driving and watch it. The guy that had the failure yesterday said his oil pressure went from 70 to 20 psi in minutes. I started driving and pressure got up to 88 psi, and at a light went to 17 psi. Do any others see anything like this? First of all, 88 psi seems rather high and 17 psi sitting at a light seems awfully low. I am a little concerned. Also, by doing research, looks like the part numbers have been changed for the cooler lines to 84058586 and 84058587. Hopefully these are upgraded. Thinking about putting a hose clamp around the aluminum crimp fitting just as insurance in case the crimp tries to split, like some of the pictures that I have seen. At least if the fitting split, the hose clamp would put enough pressure to keep the rubber hose from blowing off and separating. What do you think?
