Considering how cheap the replacement lines are (under $30) I'm not sure if it's worth replacing the o-rings, as the next place to fail will be the crimps. Personally I'd feel better with all new lines.

Probably, BUT, in my notes I have a different number listed for the 95-97 lines: YF-2371, which is a 6 pack. There are two seals on each end of each hose.


BTW gm95, if you decide to replace your lines as well there is one catch - the Dorman lines do not have the correct fittings on one end for -97s, which use spring locks at the adapter side. The opposite end spring lock can be removed from the adapter leaving you with 1/2" NPT female threads. Your local Napa, or a hydraulic shop can then crimp on 1/2" NPT fittings in place of the Dorman 98+ line pinch bolt/o-ring setup so you can thread them into your adapter (Though I don't know how much they'd charge you)
Make sure they are swivel style so the hoses don't have to rotate to tighten

I have the same problem on my '98. Will I have to drain the pan to change the oil cooler lines? Or are they pretty much dry when the engine's been stopped?

You don't have to drain the pan, but there will be some oil in the lines and cooler.


I'd highly recommend to change the oil and filter at the same time though, in case anything got in (and it's cheap, easy and you're right there)

The old lines tend to harden up with age, so removing them to install new O-rings may cause the hoses to crack and leak. I also have the dorman hoses and I am happy with them too.

Thinks for the all replies. I just bought this car. The oil pressure is low (4 PM ) Then I try pull the oil sender and cannot reach it except taking out the cooler hose. There is some oil on the hose and do not know if it leaks. Thus I thought buy some new oil rings to install after took the hose off. After read post about low oil pressure post, I know the sender is on/off switch and my oil pressure is above 6 psi regardless where is needle. After reading oil cooler hose problem, I decide I do not do anything right now because it is not easy task to do with cooler hose such as new one, U shape bypass or delete the cooler.I think it might be cheap solution to custom made rubber bypass hose made by hydralic shop if I can locate one.
