Oil Leak From Oil Cooler

When I did the Oil Change I notice Oil close to the filter, I cleaned the area and changed the Oil, recently I decided to take a look and notice oil again...

I read about loose srews on the oil cooler, mine where loose also so I tight them ...Have you had the same problem? It was resolved with that?

Mine's doing it AGAIN! Had it in 2 months ago and they replaced the oil cooler adaptor gasket. I was under the car the other day and noticed that tell tale sign of oil under the adaptor again. It goes in next Monday!

Just picked up the car from the dealer for the oil leak. This time they said it was the oil pan gasket. The oil cooler was o.k. This is the second oil leak on my car, seems a little extreme for a brand new car with only 7000 miles on it.

Can anyone tell me the TSB for the oil cooler leak that requires a new gasket?

I don't think there is a TSB but if you have a leaking gasket I'm sure the dealer will replace it. I'm going in for mine next week......and it looks just like the OP's.

Yes, I have seen this one too. I'm beginning to think there isn't one and everyone is thinking this TSB is the one for the gasket fix. Thanks anyway.
