    Does anyone know where I can get the hose that goes from the top connection on my oil cooler to right below the oil filter? Mine cracked the other day and squirted oil everywhere. Fortunately I do not believe that I hurt the engine, but I won't know until I get the new hose.

    Thanks,
    Charles

    Good luck, it happened to me.

    try gtcarparts, Phoenix Arizona. Do a search, you'll find the phone number. Ask for Bill. It is about $120.

    Charles, you can take your hose off the car and take it to a place that services big rig trucks, they should be able to make a line just like it unless the fittings are special to a ferrari 308. i have had a local Kenworth shop make lines for me in the past on the other cars, but not on either of the 308's ..... yet :) have fun!

    Somebody else here did this and the hose busted.
    I have never had any luck getting any of this done at my local shops.

    good point, but last time i priced a hose ( when i thought my upper one was leaking .... it was the distributer seal) the hose was $320.. ....... if they are $120 then i would agree to just buy the correct OEM hose and be done with it.
