Should You be Running an Auxiliary Oil Cooler?

oil cooler on a vehicle

If you’re running a truck (or trucks) without an auxiliary oil cooler, it may be something you want to consider. Here’s some information on auxiliary oil coolers, what they are, and why they’re a great upgrade, from Community Car Care in Alexandria, KY.

Towing - If your truck is used for towing or other heavy-duty work, an auxiliary oil cooler is something you want to think about. Oil coolers dramatically reduce the temperature of the oil in your engine, preventing it from overheating when you need it most. If your engine is working overtime, make sure it’s well prepared. One of our technicians can help you decide what size and type of cooler to go with.

Engine Wear - Coolers reduce engine wear, which will keep your engine running smoothly for years to come. Cooler oil not only prevents the engine from overheating, but it keeps the oil in better condition as well. Oil degrades more rapidly when it gets too hot; a cooler will make sure it’s still in good shape by the time you’re ready for an oil change.

How it Works - An oil cooler works essentially like a radiator - as oil circulates, it is pushed through lines and through the cooler to significantly reduce oil temperature. Rather than allowing the oil to build and contain heat, the oil cooler creates more circulation over a longer path and diffuses heat away from the engine.

Installation is straightforward but needs to be done correctly by a professional to ensure there’s no risk of damage or leakage. No matter your repair or maintenance needs, we’ve got you covered.
