Oil cooler seal replacement... HELP...

Can some one tell me what tools I will need to use to replace my oil cooler seal. I have a stream of oil pouring out on to my exhaust at the back of the motor. I have read threads and if its not the filter or oil pan screw its probably my oil cooler seal. I just dont know how to remove the oil cooler to get to the seal and the tools required to get the job done. Please help...

I don't know if there's a thread on here about it, but a google searched turned up a thread on Prelude Power. Looks like you need a 30mm socket, and he used a razor blade to pull the o ring out.

Hey thanks. I was just hoping to talk to a few people that have done it. But the site that came up in Google had a step by step write up with pictures. Very helpful.

I have a base 98 lude so its easier than the SH or so Ive heard. It only took me 30 minutes to do it. You need a 30 mm socket, dont disconnect the coolant lines or you will have a huge mess. Once you get the bolt undone from the cooler, lightly tap the cooler to loosen it up from the block, take old o-ring out put new one in, put bolt back in torque to spec, put oil filter back on, refill oil as you will have lost about a 1/2 a quart or so. Clean up and your done.
