    Angry Oil Leak Help

    well here is the deal. i just picked up a 96 s10 blazer 4x4 for a DD. and before i start to drive it i whanna fix everything thats wrong with it or could be a problem. well i have a nice little oil leak comming from the engine area. i looked to see what it was and it the adapter block (were the oil filter would normaly go) for the oil lines that go to the oil cooler. it seems to be leaking out of the seams. now heres my question. has anyone ever ran into this and have fixed it? is it a real pain in the ass to do it? it seems pretty easy. just 2 bolts and it off. what kinda seal is in there? o-rings, steel seal? and anyone know what the part # for the kit is? i looked on alldata and it didnt even list anything for this. anyhelp would be awsome.

    oh man ive fixed quite a few at work, they seem to always leak, and yes your correct, they are pretty easy to do. There isnt anything else you have to take off. just pay attention to clean mating surfaces and bolt tightness....u know the drill.
