The oil cooler is an integral part of the oil and coolant circuit. It is required to lower the oil temperature. Therefore, it is an engine oil-refrigerant heat exchanger. The oil cooler is required in each car, because the oil works best as a lubricant. If we are speaking of cooling, it is merely a relative effect. When the engine is running at operating temperature, the water is hot. At the same time, the oil is hotter than the water. Due to a heat exchange, relative cooling happens inside.
For efficient operation of heat transfer, oil heaters are designed so that the oil provides the largest possible area for the coolant. Stainless steel or aluminum is used as a material usually. In general, all materials are suitable, which have a high thermal conductivity. The location of the oil cooler is not hard to find, because only the coolant circuit are investigated. The most common defect is a leak. In many cases it is sufficient to replace the two seals. If this will not change anything, you need to replace oil cooler completely.
During dismantling the oil cooler you need to lower the oil for environmental reasons. After installation of oil cooler, the coolant and the oil must be added. Generally, it makes sense to connect the replacement of the oil cooler with an oil change. An oil cooler can be quite expensive, so it is worthwhile to compare prices before buying.
