Engine oil cooler - removal and refitting

Note: Suitable sealant will be required on refitting - see text.

Removal
1 Remove the engine oil filter (Chapter 1).

2 Note the angle at which the coolant hoses are set, then disconnect the hoses and plug their ends to minimise coolant loss. If necessary, drain the coolant (Chapter 1).

3 Using a ring spanner or socket, undo and remove the threaded sleeve (see illustration).

4 Remove the oil cooler and its gasket.

5 Should the threaded bush come out with the threaded sleeve, or if it is removed for other reasons, it should be renewed.

Refitting
6 Clean the threads of the female connection in the cylinder block, then commence refitting by screwing a new threaded bush into the cylinder block.

7 Apply Omnifit Activator УRapidФ (to Ford Specification SSM-998-9000-AA) to the exposed threads of the bush and to the internal threads of the threaded sleeve.

8 Apply one drop of Omnifit Sealant У300 RapidФ (to Ford Specification SSM-4G-9003- AA) to the threads of the bush. Do not use more than one drop, as there is risk of contaminating the oil system.

9 Fit the oil cooler over the threaded bush using a new gasket, and secure it in position (remember the angle of the coolant pipes) with the threaded sleeve, tightening it to the specified torque.

10 Fit the new oil filter (Chapter 1).

11 Reconnect the coolant hoses, top-up the oil and coolant to their correct levels, and then run the engine to normal operating temperature and check for leaks. On completion, allow the engine to cool and recheck oil and coolant levels.
