Information - Oil Cooler

Today there is a possibility to cool the vehicle`s engine more effectively, using oil radiators. They are necessary in order to distribute the heat from the engine with oil, which is located directly in the motor, and performs an important part of this work. Recently, the use of the oil cooler is getting gradually popular among motorists.

The oil cooler consists of specific cooling plates and tubes that cool circulating hot oil. This item is integrated into the crankcase system, without affecting its functioning. The efficiency of the oil cooler primarily depends on the materials, used in its manufacture: their thermal conductivity, shape and design. There are two oil radiator systems: with natural and artificial cooling systems. Artificial cooling systems are provided with an additional fan, which increases the air flow to the cooling device and cools the oil a lot more efficient. Oil coolers have a construction that excludes obstructions (blockage).

Piping systems provide smooth, unhindered oil circulation through the system and completely remove remaining oil when it is replaced. You must remember, that if you use an additional oil cooler, your vehicle is going to require more oil than usual, because if the cooler is included into the engine cooling system, you will have to fill with oil the whole pipeline system. The use of oil coolers increases significantly the cooling efficiency of the engine, as well as the oil protection of the engine. Working in the operating temperature range, the engine oil is not submitted to negative factors and, therefore, serves much longer.

What you need to know about oil cooler replacement: lifetime limits, common defects and their signs, tips and recommendations

The engine oil cooler has no specified lifetime limit as well as the automatic transmission oil cooler, which in most cases is built in it. Replacement of these components is necessary in cases of their clogging or body pressurization fault.

In most cases, increasing of oil temperature indicates that the engine oil cooler of the car is clogged. And if the part is damaged, then oil pressure will be decreasing. These data are indicated on a special screen on the dashboard. Often, jerks or vibration at gears switching appear when the automatic transmission radiator is broken. Moreover, car dynamics may worsen.

In most cases, it is possible to diagnose breakdown of the automatic transmission radiator by measuring oil level in the engine or gearbox with the help of an oil gage. For detailed diagnostics you need to apply to a service station. Specialists of a service station will demount the components, which hinder access to the part, remove and inspect the radiator itself visually.

It is necessary to replace the engine or the automatic transmission cooling radiator at a service station. Cracks on the hoses, which lead to the components may be found by specialists during demounting of the parts. In this case, the radiator should be replaced together with the hoses.
