Hi there,

I wonder if someone can shine some light on Celica ST-162. It is a G-reg, I am the 4th owner and only done 65K!! Unfortunately, due to wear and tear, rust has damaged the Oil Cooler line, just between the connection to the hose pipe. Is there anyone out there who can help me modify it by cutting the rusted pipes and apply a new hose? The dealer does not stock Metal oil line (discontinued).

I am based in Leicester and have been around to many garages etc, but no one is keen to modify it. I can travel a little outside Leicester to get it repaired.

Later on I will attach some pics taken a week ago.

All your comments will be highy appreciated.

I would have thought it may be similar to one on a St182/183, as far as i know they use the same engine and probably the cooler is in a similar place

It wouldn't be that hard to cut it yourself mate. Just use a saw and get a straight cut on both ends, buy a small bit of hose and clip it on.

A second-hand pipe would be better, because you could be sure there was no pressure loss or anything like that, but it would still work fine by doing what I said in the first sentence. :D

Good advice, Kynan. But instead of using a saw, you can get an implement for cutting copper pipe in any hardware.

You just clamp it on, lightly, turning it on the pipe while gently tightening it. With this you don't get distortion & you get a perfectly smooth cut.

If you get 2 "joiners" of the correct size, these will clamp the new piece of pipe between the old bits, perfectly & permanently. You just screw down the nuts at either end & this forces an olive onto the pipe. Quick & easy !
