Massive oil leak

So I just bought this 1995 crew cab 5 speed Dually and it has leaked a significant amount in 24 hours of sitting. When I fired it up and crawled under I noticed the leak appeared to come from an1.5” tube or pipe maybe that runs from the oil filter assembly directly under the driver side exhaust header to the front of the motor. Can you guys help me with part names and how difficult this will be to fix. Good thing is I live less than .2 miles away from a power stroke shop. I’m just scared of what they will charge me. So any info will be greatly appreciated. Also if I get it done what should be a reasonable price to have it fixed. Thanks

Re: Massive oil leak

That would be the oil cooler they have orings that seal the oil in and keep the oil and coolant from mixing. A good shop should have no problem doing it. What they will charge will depend on where they get their parts from and what their labor rate is. It is awkward to get in and out but its only like 5 bolts 2 at the front 3 at the back and pull it out carefully. Where are you at in Texas.

Baytown just outside of Houston. If it’s just 5 bolts then I might attempt to do this on my own.

Re: Massive oil leak

Just make sure u mark it before disassembly if u don't and get it misaligned u will crack the housing when u try and bolt it back up. I will make a mess but not as hard as it looks.

Give it to Mikey. He won't eat it he hates everything. Hey Mikey!! He Likes It.

Re: Massive oil leak

Also expect to loose all your coolant and make a big mess when you pull things apart.

The oil is cooled by the coolant.

Re: Massive oil leak

Be aware of the parts that make up the oil pressure regulator valve that are located in the block-side of the oil filter/cooler header piece like to fall out of the early model trucks. If the do fall out without being noticed, you will most likely end up with a no-start condition. I would recommend getting OEM gaskets and O-rings for this job as well. Cheers!
