    My oil cooler is leaking at the fittings (both). Anybody else having this problem. Now the bad part, not all of the parts are available. I had this problem with my 05 SRT-10 and used after market lines to fix the problem.

    . Same issue look Familiar?
    What was your reaolution to this?
    Dealer said the same thing that all the parts already have a driving the car seems to be running OK haven't really been pushing it
    Seems like it's leaking at the fitting as well
    Dealer tech called it a seep not a leak
    Apparently better
    I have 1000 miles on the car at about 600 miles I noticed the issue when I went to go do it oil change at Valvoline the guys let me know there was an issue. Did not change oil yet.
    I didn't want to mess sitting for the oil filter and listen anything up
    Oil pressure was around 37 psi at 600
    Miles Now it goes in between 34-35 at idle when in Drive at a standstill.
    No leaking on the floor at all or in the pan
    wondering if the decrease in oil pressure is also because there's less oil in the car now as overtime oil percentage is now 85 %
    Seems logical
    Though
    Thanks

    Rob,

    When the Tech. fixed mine he replaced both the lines and the Cooler itself. It seems to me that the Shity Fittings are the problem. Run your HC hard like at the Track and I'll bet you will find enough "seeping" to cause a drip.

    No sweat
    By the way I went back to Valvoline today to have my guys there to check and see if the oil filter area still see thing and it wasn't it all looks like the tech at Dodge cleaned it up the other day, must have tightened something because I put 400 miles on the car since Friday and there's no oil leaking
    they still have the parts on order so obviously they thought there was an issue but car is running great so were all good here
    Thanks
