Oil cooler lines

I was recently told by a seller that the oil cooler line issue is not an issue on the '97's. Any truth to that? Any '97 major issues that I do need to consider since the search seems to have narrowed to a '97 or nothing? Thanks.

They are an issue, but not a big one. Just replace them every so often. The only issue with the 97's is that they are made by Land Rover. Other than that, your good.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Van,

The 97 lines need to be replaced just like the others as they are 10yr. plus old vehicles and the factory lines will rot over time. There are a few minor differences beween the 94/95's and the 97's, however the fact remains that the lines should be changed and perferably replaced with S/S lines.

I live in the Memphis area and would be happy to show you my updated lines. I got them done locally for about $120.

Keith

$125 to replace them..... or the possibility of having the truck burn like pot at a Grateful Dead concert.

Your call.

Just use caution when replacing lines on '97's as the fittings thread into the front timing cover instead of the filter housing as on the older motors. The front cover end of the lines use a very low torque (not sure what off the top of my head....read the fawkin manual) and if over tightened will crack the front cover, which is fairly expensive to replace.

Had to repair this for more than one handy home mechanic, and even "factory trained" techs have fawked it up.

Keith,
I really live in Lakeland, just over the hill from you. We've all been programed to put Memphis on everything for so long that we just keep doing it. Thanks for the offer.
