Re: oil leak after cold weather start, then stop
Probably from the external oil cooler. I had the o-rings replaced, there are o-rings that seal the oil from the outside and also seal from the coolant. Mine were brittle and cracked, leaked to the outside. The inside were also hard and brittle, no leak. Hate to think of coolant in the oil or oil in the coolant. Peace of mind is worth a little $$$.
