Q: Oil cooler leak in 2003 Ford F-250 Super Duty

asked by on

The oil cooler has a leak. There is oil in the water.

Hi. The engine oil cooler uses engine coolant to cool the oil during operation. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the oil leak on your vehicle and suggest an appropriate repair. A leak at this seal can cause catastrophic engine damage.
