Engine coolant is used to cool the oil. A plate-style external heat exchanger is located on the left side of the engine block. A single O-ring style gaskets seal the oil cooler to the oil cooler adapter. Replace the O-ring style gaskets whenever the oil cooler is removed or replaced. The oil is fed to the oil cooler through the oil filter. After the oil cooler, the oil is fed back to the main oil gallery of the cylinder block. The oil cooler and adapter is located on the left side of the engine block.
The oil cooler is attached to the top of the oil filter housing which is located in the V of the cylinder block. The oil cooler is a plate style coolant-to-oil heat exchanger.
An engine cooler is not available on the 5.7L engines.
The engine oil cooler (2) is engineered for maximum cooling efficiency with no restriction in oil flow. The oil cooler is a stack plate design coolant-to-oil heat exchanger.
The oil cooler (2) is mounted between the oil filter (1) and the engine block. The oil cooler uses the radiator coolant system; coolant is circulated through two coolant hoses to maintain a consistent engine oil temperature.
