The 2005-13 Ford Escape and transit van with the 2. That way they still get some of my money and I won't have to wait for the parts to ship. I topped it off, but I've only driven it about 30 miles between 3 trips since Friday so I haven't been able to judge how fast it is leaking yet. I'm not taking this route unless someone else can confirm this works though I don't see why not. They've emailed me once and called me once to ask me if they had the right gasket.
I found this website which had the parts slightly cheaper, but not by much. I would appreciate a picture and I'll try to research as much as I can until then. I promise I try to research as much as possible before asking stupid questions. It had a helpful diagram of the parts too. So far, I haven't read any threads that have said that actually worked, but it's worth a shot right? So far, I haven't read any threads that have said that actually worked, but it's worth a shot right? More performance parts to come once my stock parts quit breaking.
If I understood correctly, which I may not have, I have to do more research of my own Mazda changed the oil cooler in 2008 and the part number is for the oil cooler gasket 2008 and newer. He said he has one with only 10k miles on it and no leaks. Thanks in advanced for any advice you can provide. Here's a good write-up on the re-sealing process. I did have to have one part machined down.
Just to make sure I have this right. The stock oil cooler should be good, it works well enough and mounting a front mounted cooler is a lot more work for no gain. I've been told that Mazda didn't actually make the rubber gasket separately from the oil cooler for the 2006 and 2007 mazdaspeed 6, so if the gasket is leaking, then the whole oil cooler has to be replaced. The standard kit didn't fit exactly. A few friends have informed me that part number may not be the correct gasket for my vehicle. I'll still need this seal if i do the spin on conversion, correct? We'll do our best to help you find top-quality oil coolers at the best prices possible.
A friend just sent me this link. I have never seen the two coolers side by side so I honestly have no idea if they physically changed the cooler or if it is something that will change the gasket. The best part is, our Mazda 5 Engine Oil Cooler - O. Don't know when mine started leaking, but it would have run out of oil pretty quickly at the rate it was going. I don't know if what I'm looking for isn't there or if I am just stupid. Part numbers can be found in my part numbers thread.
Bottom Line recommended Put in 67 Firebird with 400 ci engine that had been running hot. The gasket is on the bottom of the cooler my cooler is upside down in the pic. Car looked great on the lot. I bought a used 2009 Mazda5 from a small car lot as an upgrade from my 2006. I'm still searching for cheaper sites, but I think this is probably the lowest I'll find. From what I've read, the gasket in the oil cooler Gen 1 is a tight fit and snaps into place.
If the car blows up, then i won't be able to work, which will make me not be able to pay any bills at all, lol. I've been checking the oil level about 3 times a week. I wanted to seamfoam as well before changing the oil, but I don't know if that'll be a good idea with the oil cooler and valve cover gasket needing to be replaced. In any case, if the gasket is not the right part, then I will need to cancel my order. For those that choose to keep the Gen 1 cooler, the above videos show how to remove it, clean the plastic gasket assembly, then reseal. I haven't been lucky enough to come across a speed. I'd probably try and get it done all in one day or within two days.
Is this the part from the parts thread that you're talking about to block the gasket? Thanks for the very helpful information. Took a while to get the cooler in the proper spot on top of the filter housing. After getting the car up on the ramps it looked like the oil was coming from the top of the oil filter housing. I have a not so painful solution now. Several models of Fords and Mazdas use that cooler, its more common than you think. Shop online, find the best price on the right product, and have it shipped right to your door. Was this with the cartridge oil filter, and, if so - do you know if it is specific to the cartridge filter design? You'll get a bit of a surprise if you don't.
