I drove the van 90 miles the previous day with no problems. The next day I started the motor. Oil pressure gauge went right up to maximum and blew the seal on the oil filter. I drained the remaining oil and installed a new oil filter. On start up, same thing happened. Seal on the oil filter blew out and I shut the motor down immediately. Obviously I have a clog in the system which I am going to have to locate. If I had a diagram of the oil circuit, it would help me determine where to start looking. I am hoping it will be external in the cooler or the cooler lines. Obviously the oil pump and pressure gauge are working. I am going to star with seeing if oil will pass through the cooler of the lines. If the cooler and the lines are clear, this is not going to be an easy one to find. Any suggestions on what or where to start looking. I could really use some help and luck on this one.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
