Cool. Anyone else is free to chime in also.I have been using the kit for a couple of weeks now and have had no problems with it.
I think you are fine as is, I have an 05 with 120kmiles I beat the crap out of it. The only reason that I'm using the oil cooler is because mine gave out. I believe the oem oil cooler works a little more efficient then the flexalite, but that is just my .02 cents.
The install was simple all you do is disconnect the two water lines going to the cooler and use a bypass and connect them together. Then you remove the oil filter drain the oil remove the mounting nut set it aside and the oil cooler then comes off. You then grab the new oil cooler gasket and the oil cooler and place the oil ring in the groove that the flexalite sandwich adapter has. You can now use the OEM mounting nut to mount the oil cooler. Then only thing left is running the hoses to the new oil cooler which I ran under the radiator support and use up to the cooler which I sandwich between the lower radiator and fan. I can post some pic later this week when I do my lower grille mod.
I have removed my factory oil cooler.. I didn't think the new universal oil cooler adapter would work.. so after I pulled the 2 hoses off.. everything easy ez.. but my problems are.. 1 I put the 2 hoses on. The added a 5 Gt jug.. my dipstick read no oil.. I started the T up.. then a mixture oil and water came out my radiator and filled up my overflow.. my 08T. Never. Ran hot.. but now I have milkshake every were.. on the ground in my radiator on my dipstick.. does this mean my heads are gone.. are do I need to flush everything.. somebody help..Let me get this right?
You removed the stock oil filter adapter/mount and installed the F-O-L adapter in it's place?
How do I know if the stock cooler has gone bad?
Maybe this is what you're talking about.Does anyone have the drawing of our oil cooler setup/ and or routing of hoses and such. In Texas it does get a bit hot down here and I wouldn't mind looking into that as an addition along with the tranny cooler.
Kind of what I was looking for, as far as I knew we had a routing of coolant hoses right there at the base of the oil filter that ran the coolant through around the oil there, that was my perception of our cooling for oil. As I know it we do not have routing of the oil through the radiator for a cooling loop. I wanted to put an oil cooler on mine but need to get back under there and see if there is a place that I can do that with to route that oil through an external cooler, but not sure if that is possible so I was looking for the oil cooling routing more than the coolant loop, but looking at that doesn't really show a possible external method of doing that unless I can get the oil to route externally rather than through that unit at the base of the oil filter. I would like to lower that oil temp sometimes from running almost 210 out on the highway on hot days to around 180 or so. That's why I posted this, wasn't sure if someone was confusing the trans cooling through the radiator vs the engine oil cooling.Maybe this is what you're talking about.
Problem might be something as simple as this:I can't be of much help but to add a note to say, this is not a good sign nor a good way to begin a new year. You've got a mess on your hands and I don't know if there is good or better way to go forward.
Maybe someone with experience in this matter may have some suggestions. Good luck with it.
