  • Oil cooler problems

    Has a oil cooler been giving problems for anyone? The reason I ask, is I went to the stream a couple of weeks ago and the port engine (7.4 gas) used 2.5 qts of oil. Stb engine was fine. At the dock I see a shine on the water not like fuel, but maybe oil. Boat is a 95 and I believe had sat for a period of time without being used. Any suggestions?

    where does the oil seem to be emanating from, have you checked your engine oil, or is it coming from your exhaust. keep in mind the reversion/intrusion problems with those motors.

      oil cooler

      We had to replace an oil cooler about 3 mounths ago.
      We noticed our oil was getting milky and we had a slick behind the boat.
      Check your oil to see if it is milky if so the water is getting in, inside the oil cooler.
      You can call greens marine in wilmington and they will get one for you.

        Maybe both?

        It seems that it's the oil cooler. I am thinking about replacing both. What are your thoughts?

          coolers

          Oil coolers are an easy item to replace if you are skinny. One side is easier than the other. I had similar problem, slightly different though. Water shooting out of jacket not oil. Replaced cooler. Gave old cooler to shop welder and he rebuilt it like new. Keep it as a spare for the future. They are not cheap. Aftermarket slighly less expensive.The adage of replacing both is great for people with deep pockets. Good luck.
