Refurbished cooler lines - guaranteed fitment, cheap, leak-free alternative solution. 3 options - as low as $35!
What this is about: High Temp, correct oil-cooler line hose with three options below:
IMPORTANT: If not DIY, ask your mechanic if he's willing to install refurbed lines before ordering.
Option #1 - $35 EXTREME SAVINGS: $35 shipped/ppl/conus for a set of cut to length high-temp 'flexi' oil cooler hose. Remove the old flexi-lines and replace with these hoses. Includes 8 Oetiker clamps for superior, leakless install - not recommended for everybody but for those who have means/tools and skills to open-up crimped hose connectors because if you fubar your metal lines, you'll end up with no running car and will be forced to buy a new/set cooler lines ($100+ each online, $150+ each at your friendly Volvo dealer).
Option #2 - $69 ZERO DOWNTIME: $99 shipped/ppl/conus with core charges if you don't want down-time, assembled already using 8 oetiker clamps - will include new o-rings for each end. (Will NOT include compression o-ring or the external quick-release clamps on the radiator end, I was able to reuse mine so I guess you could try the same first?). You get back $30 after shipping your leaky ones back to me so another person can use it.
Option #3 - $99 $AVE TIME: $129 shipped/ppl/conus with $30 core charges for assembled set that includes all o-rings and the quick release clips with securing clamps, and the rectangular o-ring (part #1366791) to save you the trip to the dealership.. You get back $30 after shipping your leaky ones back to me so another person can use it.
DISCLAIMER: I used this myself in my previous car, a modified 17psi 98T5M, and I drove it hard with no leak issues.
Currently have a set installed on my V70 GLT'ed - an NA with swapped GLT LPT turbo motor.
