Factory Oil Filter Relocation Hose Leak

One of the 2 hoses behind the bumper of my truck is covered in oil. I usually add a quart of oil every 1200 miles. I have the relocation from the factory for the oil filter. Does anyone else have this problem or have had this problem and resolved it? Suggestions are also welcome.

Mine has it and from what I understand it's fairly common. I've thought about replacing it, but haven't done anything yet.

I can't really see enough of it to hypothesize what to do. I guess it's not as easy as cutting the leaky part off and hose clamping the rest?

If it was mine, Id replace it. a hose is cheaper than an engine. and alot less work too.

Mine leaked for years, now that I replaced the engine I replaced the hoses as well. They are routed behind the PS pump and are a PITA to get off on both ends, rockauto has the whole setup, the hoses actually are joined at one end with a block so you buy the whole thing but I can't remember the price off hand, seems like it wasn't too bad though between $50 and $100.

Yeah, I remember it was hard to find now. They call it an oil cooler hose, part# 625202
Cost is $58 with no tap for pressure sender $77 with.

Thanks that's what I thought it was but wasn't sure. How do I know which one I need?

I was hoping there was an easy, "rule of thumb" way of knowing which one but if crawling under there and looking is what it takes that's what I'll do.

It's not really that hard of a project. Mine leaked for a while, then got bad enough that oil was running down the skid plate, so I replaced the cooler hose. It would have been an hour project had one of the top bolts not broken...It took me an additional hour to get the rusted, large, allen bolt out to remove the cooler, then had to get the broken bolt out, re-install everything, and fill it with coolant again. The whole project ended up taking about 4 hours, but that shouldn't happen normally.

***Note: If replacing the hose, make sure all 4 rubber sealing rings come out with the old hose, and that the new hose has new rings installed.

I wish I had found the hose on Rockauto before I popped close to $200 at the dealer for a new hose set.

I checked Rockauto but initially didn't find anything because it's listed as an oil cooler hose, and it's only listed as fitting the 5.4 on Rock's site.

The same hose fits the 4.6 as well.
Maybe that;s the reason for the with/without sender end. On my 4.6 (97 Romeo) the sender is on the block end of the line set.

I saved my old line set and had my brother check it out. The factory line set uses what looks line Aeroquip crimp fittings. You might be able to take yours off and get it rehosed at a hydraulic shop.

If mine starts leaking again, that's my plan...get the old line set rehosed and swap it out.

I'm gonna have to make my truck last now since we are waiting for Ford to tell us that my wife's Windstar is terminal and will probably be bought back in the cradle recall.

changed mine years ago. the aftermarket lines didnt fit right and cracked the adapter on the block. when i went to ford for a new adapter they dont make the style with cooler lines so now my oil filter is right on the block. alot nicer to have the filter away from the fender but i wish i didnt spend $150 on new lines that ended up being worthless.

On my 4.6 there would be no putting the filter "back" on the block.

There's barely any room up there and I'd have to remove the front skid plate at every oil change.
I worry a little about it getting damaged behind the bumper, but if I take a hit on the bumper that bad I'll have bigger problems than the oil filter....
