I just developed a huge oil leak (up from an occasional drip) - which _looks_ like it originates between the oil cooler and the oil filter mount/bracket.
For anyone who has had this issue, how common is it for the O-ring to disintegrate? The service manual says to use the AMV 188 100 02 sealing stuff (which is expensive). Any suitable alternative?
I have not noticed any oil in the coolant, or vice versa. Yet.
Thanks in advance for any help.
