The only way that an engine will be able to run as intended is by having the right internal temperature. With all of the different things that can cause an engine’s internal temperature to rise, it will be a bit hard to keep up with all of them. The oil that runs through your engine can get quite hot without the right elements to cool it down. The oil cooler is usually mounted near the radiator and will help to cool the oil with the air that is passing through the engine. The only way that this oil can get to the cooler is by using the oil cooler lines. This part of your car is used constantly when the engine is running, which is why it is so important to keep it in good shape.

The oil cooler line will have to be checked on a regular basis to ensure that there is no damage that will need to be handled. The time that is spent routinely checking the oil cooler hose will more than pay off when you are able to spot repair issues early on. Allowing these lines to remain damaged can lead to even more repairs to the internal portion of your vehicle. The oil cooler lines of most vehicles are made from metal and have compression fittings on either end. Over time, these fittings may start to become worn. Having threads that are stripped can lead to the hoses coming out of the oil cooler and causing a lot of fluid to leak out. The best way to make sure these hoses are in good shape is by allowing a professional to inspect them on a regular basis.

When your oil cooler lines are damaged, here are some of the warning signs that you may have:

  • There are bends or crimps visible
  • The oil is leaking from around the hoses
  • The Low Oil light in the vehicle is on

Having new oil lines put on is something that is best left for a professional. The professionals will know how to remove the old lines and install new lines without hesitation.

Chevrolet Blazer - Oil Cooler Lines - Phoenix, Arizona
Mechanic was Great. You screwed me on the price. You tried to make up for the mistake and over charged me for the real work! My service place was only $179.00 and you charged me over $200.00 what a great Deal! NOT Thanks for Nothing!

Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - Oil Cooler Lines - Sunnyvale, California
Can't say enough about this man. Took a job that another mechanic declined. When he showed up he went straight to work. It was not an easy job(approx.3hrs.) and required expertise. Pardeep was upbeat about completing the extensive job with confidence and did. After a minor setback(no fault of his) the following day, he asked if I was available/showed up/troubleshot the problem and left with a more than satisfied customer! If i could give him more than 5 stars, I would.

Cadillac Escalade - Oil Cooler Lines - Pennsauken, New Jersey
This was my first time going to a mechanic and not the dealership, so I was really concerned if the mechanic knew what they were doing or if they would mess my Escalade up. But when I drove it after David left, I noticed an immediate difference in the way it ran. It ran much better and I was pleased. You've just earned a new customer.

Toyota Sienna - Oil Cooler Lines - Newport News, Virginia
Matthew diagnosed and repaired a defective VVT oil line on my Toyota Sienna in the parking lot of my workplace on one of the hottest days of the year. I was a little uncomfortable about using this service, but Matthew's extremely amicable and polite confidence assured me that he was everything his profile said he was. It shows in his attitude how much he enjoys his work, and he made sure to call/text me with updates as requested and was absolutely willing to explain every step of the diagnostic and repair process - I'm going on 10,000 miles since the oil line replacement and have had no issues. I've kept his card in my car ever since and I plan to use it the next time something comes up.
