I think my oil leak oil under radiator is more than likely the oil cooler unless anyone can suggest there is anything else under there that can leak clear oil.

Anyway I have done much searching and cant find any advice on how to get at and remove the oil cooler.
Can anyone pleas help,somebody must have done this job?

Please please,am desperate to sort this:frown

Thanks Mark

It is highly unlikely that the oil from a 1998 autobox / autobox cooler is clear, it should be blackish ruby coloured....

If the leak is clear oil - then something else has failed or is failing. Had you an engine service lately?

Not due for engine service ,but did have a leaking heater return pipe replaced at garage(under intake manifold)

Oil colour is throwing me,def not red,and is dripping from bottom of rad inside engine bay above plastic under shield.
Could it be anything to do with the air con?

Any help appreciated,
Regards Mark

Hi Moke no its definately from the oil cooler.

Anyone got any tips on replacement,ie does the whole rad have to come off?

Regards Mark
