Default 92 SSEi Oil Cooler Lines

im looking at buying a 92 SSEi, and the owner is around 700 miles from me. he says it needs the oil cooler lines replaced... how hard of a job is it??

Thanks,
Devon

im guessin hes talkin about the transmission lines that go to the radiator, i need to replace one of mine too on the 95. though i havent checked into it, but its probably gonna have to come from the dealer or gmpartsdirect.com

SSEi'* also have OIL cooling lines going to the oil cooler. We have a 3-core radiator and an external trans cooler for Series 1.

Get confirmation on WHICH lines they are for certain. It'* a driveway job on jackstands. Less than an hour.

Do it to be safe. Buy oil and trans lines, do them both. I know trans are only $60 or so from the dealer.

I'll run prices for all 4 lines for you shortly.

The trans line recall has expired. There'* no way to know if it'* been done without running the VIN through a dealer.

List price is what to expect from a dealer. Plan ahead. They'll probably have to source the parts locally from a distant dealer for you.

Working on it wise..only thing I'd suggest is a nice set of line wrenches. In case the fittings decide to be stubborn, but usually they are easy.
