11-06-2006, 09:28 PM
OK i reveiwed all the threads but they seem to apply to the 3.6 engine. Has anybody replaced the gasket or removed the oil filter assembly to replace a gasket . The oil filter/ cooler looks like it has a allen head/hex nut which holds the cooler to the block. Are there any other bolts to remove? Where can i get a gasket? Has anybody changed this on an 8 cylinder? to stop a bad oil leak? thx

Do you just unscrew the big hex nut? Can i slip a new gasket in in underneath. do i need to disconnect the oil pressure sending unit wire?
