    When you say straight flow there are two hoses one enters from the pump and the other goes to the exhaust , is the exhaust hose side the exit?

    Doesn't look easy at all. Be careful of the oil pressure unit next to the filter....it snaps off pretty easy if your tool slips. I'd be inclined to remove the intake manifold to improve access, but I haven't had to get down there yet. Reading the manual, there doesn`t appear to be a thermostatic switch in the cooling system that may be causing your blockage....so best dig it out I guess.

    Good luck, let us know how it goes.

    you have to remove the intake manifold, oil filter, then there is a big piece the oil filter screws into that has to be removed followed by the bolts that hold it down.
