Unhappy XT coolant leak, by oil filter?

Changed the oil and filter today, now I have a coolant leak dripping from the small hose next to the filter.

On an 04 XT auto I am assuming this is the oil cooler?
The "clamp" attaching it was just floating around the metal pipe, so I tried to reattach it, but the way it was oriented there was no way to get any type of plier on it. So I removerd it and replaced it with a regular worm type clamp. Now there is coolant running down the hose from somewhere above it. By any chance does someone have a diagram posted that might point me in the right direction to find it?

I tried searching, leak, coolant, cooler, but to no avail.

Why does this always happen on a Sunday night

Thanks
Greg

I had the same problem when I changed my Oil filter and useing a removale tool. I must in the procces damaged the that small hose. I am sure if you check out this hose it has a hole or cut it. I now have purchased a special subaru tool to remove the filter so this will not happen again.

Those pics and info are for the SF Forester's oil cooler so it might not be a bad idea to verify the PN's are the same for the SG.

Check with Subie Gal (Jamie) my guess is she can help. In a pinch my guess is you can use some 3/8" fuel line till you get the right part. You may need to loop it into a pigtail to prevent kinking. Hold the loop together with some wire ties. Just a thought.

Thanks all,

Peaty you saved my butt.

Go figure, I got that part number from my local Subi store, Subaru of Morristown.

Managed to bandaid it with a PVC 90 elbow, the hole was right on the 90. Tough spot to work on in the snow on your back..


Jamie, will email you, have a few other things I need.

Thanks
Greg
