I have a 2008 Nissan Altima. I went today to have a routine oil change and I was told I have a "bad oil cooler". Someone please enlighten me on this? I am female and unfortunately I have very little knowledge of my cars structure. How much am I looking at for repair? Is it difficult to fix yourself? Thanks in advance.

If you have a friend that is mechanically inclined I would have them look at it. Could simply be a hose or hose clamp. Definitely get a second opinion. If it is bad shouldn't be more than a couple hundred dollars including labor.

It is usually just the gasket behind the cooler.A simple repair.
