After the oil cooler the oil goes to the crank and transmission. It will actually take less time to pressurize the system than when you replace an oil filter.

    Thanks, crash. Changed the o ring yesterday, and it seems fine now. Had a bit of oil come out, as you explained. Havent topped up as not sure what the previous owner put in - he only changed the filter/oil via the mechanics for the RWC 2 months back.

    Damn! The very mild leak has returned. Not sure if it was the right thickness of o-ring. Will try source the exact piece of rubber and try again?

    Yes, get the OE part. I spec o-rings by the millions at work and there are MANY variables. A generic o-ring is never acceptable for a vehicle application.
