Im about to send this &%$#@ car to the *&^% junkyard. I disassembled the turbo side of the motor and pulled the oil return line off of the oil pan. I went to remove the nipple that it connects to so I can install a 90* and I cant get the F!#@$ thing off. I cant get a socket or even boxed end of a wrench on it because it'* so close to the trans. Now I'm starting to strip it. It looks like my only option is to pull the motor or send the whole f!#@$ car to the junkyard.

Whos idea was it to put the return line on the backside of the motor anyway!


oh... right...

Hey, what about just cutting the line and putting a pressure fitting on it?

I got started on pulling the engine out again last night. If I work hard tonight, I may get the problem fixed and motor reinstalled tonight. We'll see.

I wish you the best of luck! You've come too far to get stuck on a nipple. I agree with Dan - pictures are necessary. No extravagant posing needed

I've got the motor out, again....

I cannot for the life of me get this fitting off. Its 7/8ths and I don't have a deep well boxed end socket. The shallow grabs about half of it and its just stripping. I don't know what the F to do to get this B off.
