The heat that the engine produces can produce a lot of damage in the right situation. Making sure that all of the systems on a car that reduce the heat of the engine are working properly is important. The engine oil cooler helps to take the oil that circulated through the engine and cool it off. Having oil at high temperatures can lead to damage on the internal parts of the engine. Oil that is too hot will also be at the wrong viscosity, which means that it will be harder for the internal portions of your engine to use it. The oil cooler will have to work every time that you run your engine.

Typically, the oil cooler is supposed to last for the lifespan of the car. There are certain repair situations that can compromise the overall functionality of this part and make it very hard for you to get the proper cooling for your engine oil. Keeping an eye out for damage can help you to reduce the amount of damage that this type of repair issue can cause. Neglecting to act when issues are detected can make the damage to the vehicle worse and will cost you more money to get everything fixed.

Changing out an oil cooler is not an easy job and can be nearly impossible for a car owner will little experience. Attempting to do this type of repair will usually lead to the car owner making matters much worse and complicating matters. Hiring a knowledgeable professional is the best way to make sure that the oil cooler is replaced the right way. The professionals will also be able to troubleshoot the issues you are experiencing to make sure that the oil cooler is the problem.

Steve had an appt cancel and called me so he took care of my car before my scheduled appt. He called to say he was on his way and he was right on time. The work was finished in a timely manner. I will definitely recommend Your Mechanic and also recommend Steve as the mechanic to do any work someone might need done on their vehicle.
