Oil Cooler Elimination:


This is a critical step when installing a new, remanufactured or rebuilt engine.

T
he successful installation of a remanufactured engine has a great deal to do with the cleanliness of the job. 

Thoroughly cleaning the oil pump screen, oil pan, valve cover(s), manifolds and related parts is an absolute must. 

Some vehicles came from the factory with external engine oil coolers.  There's a few different styles of oil coolers out there,  but regardless of  the design, they do a great job of trapping grit, bearing material and other particles from the worn out engine that's being replaced. 

For this reason all oil coolers must be replaced or eliminated when installing a remanufactured engine. 

The question is often raised as to why this is, and the answer is simple.  The new engine with higher oil pressure, on start up will dislodge trapped debris in the oil cooler and force it into the bearings of the new engine.  This will cause premature wear in most cases, or sometimes an instant failure. 

Replacing an engine oil cooler can sometimes be very costly but on some models it's possible to eliminate the cooler instead.
