    Nice right up. I'd like to make a suggestion as to replace your spark plugs if you do this job your self. As to do plugs you need to remove the upper intake again to replace your plugs.

    Thanks for the write up. It really helped today when I replaced mine.

Other then that, I don't think there are anymore OR less leaks between the design. I have read a lot of 14 and new 3.6L having the dreaded oil cooler leak. The 2014-newer model Oil cooler adaptor part number is #68105583-AE. I will update my write up.

    Below is a 2011-2013 engine oil filter.

    This is what broke on mine replacing the filter on a ‘13. Lesson learned. Not for sure if it was broke installing or taking the old filter out. Had to replace the oil cooler, no fix for just the retainer and spring, only option is replacement. My eyelids are thicker than the plastic used for the retainer spring. Any way, so far no leaks🤞

    Also,great write up man

    I believe you can replace it with a later JK oil cooler, as they changed the filter design because of that problem.

    Yes, you can replace it with a newer oil cooler design. I replaced the cooler on my ‘12 with one that uses the newer filter design and so far no issues.

    I should have done that but didn’t figure that out until it was too late. Oh well.

    If the spring and retainer breaks again, you can get just the spring and retainer. Here’s a link to the parts.

    Son of A ! I don’t think this was available when mine broke, I want to say it happened in late 2014 or so. Or at least, I’m telling myself it wasn’t available. Damn it, that would have made it so much easier! Good to know man

    So identified that i'm leaking coolant from oil cooler or rear hose, or both, and am set to replace the cooler, hoses and spark plugs on my 2012 JKUR this weekend. I ordered an oil cooler on amazon and it arrived yesterday. It's part # 68105583AF, which is for the 2014-2016 JKs. But this thread seems to indicate that it will work on mine as long as I use the 2014+ oil filters. Is that correct?

    Thanks,
    Mike

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
