    S10 blazer

    My remote oil filter lines have really started leaking and need to replace them. my question is the lines that runs from the block to the oil filter is there a place to get them rebuilt? the only place i could find the line assembly was GM. if i could get the orings on the adapter and some new rubber lines pressed on would i be ahead? GM wants $$ for the stupid line adapter? its a 1991 4x4 4.3L My wife says just to get rid of it but i got 270k on the clock and am kind of attatched

    I've replaced at least 4 sets of them on Blazers and s10's in the last 3 weeks. I don't suggest trying to get new ones pressed in personally just because the probability of another leak is pretty high. There not hard at all to replace. just get you a 10mm (i believe) socket, a universal, and about 12 to 15 inches worth of extensions, a prybar, a ratchet, and a curved pick.

    Not that I can think of off the top of my head. You could try an auto parts store but I don't know.

    If you really want to do it right you caould look up aeroquip for the stuff you need and build your own. Look for an industrial supplier near you and you can the cheaper insudrtial stuff.

    Easy fix to oil cooler line leak

    I had a 1996 Astro / 4.3L V6 / Basically same oil cooler line set up as the Blazer. By the way, I currently have a 1998 Blazer LS w/ 4.3L V6. I sold the Astro. To fix your oil leak, just go to the auto parts store and purchase some rubber hose that will tolerate the oil and fit the aluminum lines coming off the oil filter adapter and the aluminum lines coming off the radiator. Also purchase some hose clamps that will fit over the rubber hose. Use a dremel tool (if you don't have a dremel this may be a problem because I don't think there is room to use a hack saw unless you just hold the bare blade in your hand to do the cutting) to cut off the interface between the rubber hose and the aluminum tubing. Then cut to fit and insert the new hose over the end of the aluminum tubing (don't forget to run the clamps over the tubing first) and secure it with the clamps. I used this fix with my Astro and Wah Lah!!!! Works fine / lasts a long time. No more leak and didn't break the bank either!
