    Does anyone have an idea on how to clean oil out of a radiator? My oil cooler sprung a small leak and has coated the outside of it. I don't have a power washer. I've tried carb cleaner and engine cleaner but it thins it out a little but won't get in between the fins. Any body else had this problem?
    Thanks,
    Paul

    Well I've thried the car wash however I can't get enough pressure to got thru the cooler Back to front I have the 4 core radiator then a full size cooling condenser in front of that.The oil is built up on the front of the condenser. My only option may be to take the center support out and pull the condenser.
    Thanks
