Oil leak - what is this part?


Recommended Posts

Oil seems to be leaking from this rectangular part which is held by two bolts. What is this part and is there a seal behind it? TIA

If you are referring to this, it is the oil cooler. Water and oil both run through it (separately of course) and the radiator helps keep the oil cooler.

Sorry the photo is not good. If you blow up the photo, I was referring to the rectangular cover that the yellow arrow points to.

Got it. What's the engine and what year is it?

My car is an '03 C2. The engine photoed is not my engine but the part in question is the same as mine. The part has part # 996 101 216 52 printed on it.

Thanks, Loren! Any idea what's behind the part? I don't want to have oil or coolant gushing out when I remove it...

Coolant is the answer.

Thanks, RFM! Yikes. I was hoping to relpace the seal myself. I don't have a vacuum coolant changer so probably I'll just take it to the shop.

I don't think much will come out. Just catch what comes out (in a clean container) and put it back in.

Then drive around with the bleed valve open for a couple of days.

Thanks again, Loren! Will give it a try.
