hydraulic advisory to Coupe Q owners...
80/90 and Coupe Q owners....
Spent a little time under the hood Saturday, and finally took care
of the Pentosin leak on my Coupe Q. There's a ridged hydraulic tube
that runs in front of the AC condenser on the driver's side, connected
via hose clamps to the tubing from the hydraulic resevoir, and the
Evidently the original, called an "oil cooler?" on the microfiche, had
chaffed against the condenser, eventually causing a minute leak. After
replacing the old cooler, and dumping some Pentosin, I carefully wedged
some foam between the cooler and condenser.
I highly recommend fellow Coupe Q and 90 series owners check their cars.
Why? The replacement "oil cooler" was $116 from Carlsen!
The result? No more waiting for the "brake" idiot light to turn off, after
starting the car. Now I can save my Pentosin dollars for other maintenance.
