My 2003 Cobra recently developed an engine oil leak that I haven't been able
to track down. It is leaking from the front of the engine near the power
steering pump, but it is engine oil, not power steering fluid. It only
seems to leak when it is cold outside (30-40 degrees F. or colder) and only
a few tablespoons for the first 30 seconds or so after startup, then it
stops and doesn't leak again until the car completely cools down
(overnight). Any ideas where the oil might be coming from?
The problem was that thestud holding the cooler onto the adapter was not
properly torqued. Without proper torque, the o-ring between the cooler and
the adapter was not compressed, thus a leak. Thanks for the help.
