    Power Steering Oil Cooler Replacement - Factory or Aftermarket?

    Hello Everyone!

    My power steering oil cooler has a leak in it! Factory replacement is $154, and an aftermarket air cooler costs $30 (rough estimate)

    Should I purchase the stock cooler, or should I go with the cheaper aftermarket cooler? Has anyone had to do either before? All suggestion & comments welcome!

    Here is the symptoms: I'm getting power steering fluid in my radiator overflow tank, Yuck! The original owner did not have the overflow tank (paint can cracked it), and I just replaced the water pump. The owner always had to put power steering fluid in, and couldn't tell where it was going...now I know.. lol

    Thanks Everyone!!!

    I would pick up an aftermarket cooler but on the same token you will need too have your system flushed too clean out all the ps fluid.
