Infiniti Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX Thank you for your question.
Is the oil leak by the oil filter area?
yes is coming from that area..
The issue is not really a expensive repair
in fact it's simply a 11 dollar o-ring
It's call the oil cooler o-ring.
Let me show you a picture of it and then explain.
1 min please
That link is a picture of the oil cooler o-ring
To replace it all you need to do is remove the oil filter.
im going to check that out..1 min
Then place a 22 mm deep socket over the threaded area where the oil filter would screw into and that will come out like a bolt
The loosen a few 12 mm bolts to allow the cooler to fold out to access the o-ring.
Then you would simply replace it, and re-install to correct your problem
That link is a break down on how it works.
You don't need to disconnect any cooler hoses when replacing the o-ring.
You only need to remove a few 12 mm bolts that secure the metal lines. This way after you have the metal lines for the cooler hoses loose, you can then access behind the oil cooler to replace the o-ring
The part is around 11 dollars.
Do you have any more questions on this?
waow..that could be my problem..
That is very common when you have a leak by the oil filter
and for the price of the repair and how simple it is, it's worth replacing, cleaning up the area and then rechecking it the next day after driving
ok..jay, im going to try that and ill really apreciated you time and help in this matter...
