Default Oil feed line

I purchased a steel braided Bosch oil feed line from rsd. I got it installed last night. And now I have oil dripping from the lower banjo screw. I have did some research and seen that some people have had washer problems. I have both washers on top and bottom going to go get some new ones see if it helps. (Old ones weren't beat)

Wondering if anyone has any tips on how to get the oil from stop leaking or had this problem.

You probably should have put new ones on anyway. They do get crimped when you tighten them down. RE-using the same ones results in what you have doing on. You should probably use some sort of copper washer I would think. Also, look up the torque specs and follow them to a "T" with new OEM washers.


Just my 2 cents. We have some pro mechanics in here, who may have other thoughts.

Every tech manual says to always replace crush washers with new, even the oil drain plugs copper washer should be replaced with new every oil change. Continental has the ones you need in stock. I think their about $2.50 a peice.

Did you end up installing the new washers... is it still leaking or did it fix the problem?

How long has it been smoking, depending on how much you've been driving in these temps it could take a bit to burn off.
