Can a leaking Original Equipment Charge Air Cooler be repaired?

No. Repairing a leaking Original Equipment style Charge Air Cooler is nothing more than a band-aid and it will end up costing you more in down time when it leaks again. If the original design wouldn’t last, how can a patch repair be expected to? The cost of a new Charge Air Cooler will ultimately be far less than the loss of fuel economy you will experience as the cooler leaks more each day. You also risk a potential turbo charger replacement as the turbo continues to work harder to compensate for a leaking Charge Air Cooler. In addition there is the potential for engine wear, and other issues associated with a leaking Charge Air Cooler.
