    Default Started Stripping To Replace Oil Cooler Today : O

    Well like I said I started to strip down the engine today on my 3.2 to get at the oil cooler , which went on me last week, just glad it was the cooler as I originally suspected the head(s) gasket lol : ).
    Anyway wat a twastard of a job ,after about an hour n half I eventually got to the ****** and it was indeed leaking .
    I should be fitting the replacement one night this week , and maybe I will get the digicam out and post an how 2 for this procedure.
    Although it is a 5h1t of a job u can manage it at home , and the new parts are'nt that bad to be honest , about £100 for the cooler , then a gallon of oil , and some antifreeze , and of course it's gonna need a good flushin out as the entire contents of my sump were in my cooling system , but never mind hay ho lol

    Well at least it seams to be the only problem with the Z32SE, otherwise bulletproof.

    Ye to b honest m8 , i drove for about a mile with the oil light on and the temp thru the roof ( I know I know naughty naughty , just wanted to get home lol)
    So did a sniff test on the header tank and it's clear as a whistle , so this does stand testimony that these engines are indeed bombproof , many other donkeys that had been driven like this would prob have ended up with warped heads lol .
