If you have access to something like a NAPA auto parts store, I was
successful in replacing a leaking factory hose with 1/2 inch (~13mm) I.D.
hose rated for oil service, using hose clamps for the seal. In fact some
have reported success in taking your old hose assembly to a NAPA store and
having them make a new hose. Also in the US, CarQuest will make hoses.
Lastly I recall that GM had released a newer hose assembly less prone to
Don't plug them. The flow through the oil filter would be shut off.
To quote the service manager, " GM oil cooler lines always go on you,
if you look at the new ones they are quite different, GM must have
found a problem with them"
Nice to hear this, I drive a GM for a company truck, (it had the bad
lines) but also drive a GMC Safari at home. Maybe at $220.00 for the
parts alone, I'll be heading to my local hydraulic outfitter.
