    Photos of Z20LET engine out of the car?

    Ive got a hellish oil leak on my astra, its from the back of the engine somewhere, thinking its the oil cooler possibly.

    Has anyone got any good pictures of a complete Z20LET engine removed from a car so I know what im looking for?

    Cheers

    Oil cooler is a large plastic tube type thing bolted at the rear of the block under the inlet manifold

    Have 1 here if you need one, sorry i dont have any pictures of the block though

    just replaced my oil cooler, i doubt oil would leak out, more leak into the coolant system as the oil runs through a spiral tube surrounded by water, if your oil cooler is damaged externally it will more than likely leak water not oil.

    if its coming from that area, chances are one of the hoses has split running to the cooler, not the cooler itself, still a bitch to sort.
