Mine has a little lean to it so I dont think angle has alot to do with it. P.S. to a earlier post paint tends to do that if your in area where salt is used in the winter.

The cooler I think has a leak this is about the third time I cleaned it, And the top fins are oily looking again. Does anybody know if there is a warranty for the cooler?

Salt, dirt and moisture will cause the fins to plug up and you loose cooling due to it. If he has a leak it makes it worse as the oil film will allow it to hold more dirt in it. If it's leaking the only one who can tell you if there is any warranty is Mike.

Hey Mike. I purchased it a few years ago. Im not sure the exact date or year. Seems like the top sides are leaking. I clean them off with brake clean and after a day they are wet looking again. I cleaned this yesterday and this is what it looked like after driving today. The left and right top sides are very wet with oil. I tried to get a good pic but my camera cant zoom in very fine. What you think?

............from the pics posted it looks like the installer exerted un necessary force on the cooler when he tightened it down thereby crimping the metal and causing a leak on the cooler ! , ckfan
