Re: Engine Oil Cooler 5.7 engine

Purchase a sandwich adapter with a thermostat that fits the 5.7l V8, a Setrab or similar cooler, some Earl's lines and fittings and build your own cooler. Fab some brackets and mount. Not that difficult. Acouple hours work including beer and BS breaks.

Orrrr......... check the link I posted & buy the OEM Mopar parts from a police package Durango or Ram pickup and install them. Nothing to fab, genuine OEM parts to fit a Chrysler 5.7L hemi, plumbed correctly & guaranteed to bolt right up to your Jeep w/with no issues or problems!

Re: Engine Oil Cooler 5.7 engine

When I go in for service I'll check with my dealer about the engine oil cooler.

I find it interesting that it's listed as part of the items when you "build" a Jeep GC at jeep.com - see copy below.
  • Electro-Hydraulic Power Steering
  • Electronic Stability Control
  • Electronic Vehicle Information Center
  • Engine Oil Cooler
  • Enhanced Accident Response System
  • Exterior Mirrors with Heating Element

Just FYI, I'm the one who originally researched that information, which you reposted in your own thread (no big deal). I just want everyone clear that it's not really a trivial job to make the modification. Yes, all the parts bolt right up (I did it on my 2014) but there's a fair amount of work involved.

This is obviously a vehicle with a 3.6L V6 engine. They come with an engine oil cooler, as does the 6.4L Hemi on the SRTs. The 5.7 Hemi does not come with one from the factory on the GCs.

Never claimed to be the one who discovered that Mopar does make an oil cooler for the 5.7L Hemi, nor have I ever created my own thread on the topic. But I have spread the word on this issue, in threads were excess heat & engine fluid cooling were being discussed. It seems many think they have an engine oil cooler on their 5.7L Hemi equipped Jeeps as many window stickers and built sheets list an engine oil cooler, that apparently never made it into production..... On a 5.7L Hemi Jeep anyway.

Tell us more about your install? Did you replace a perfectly good water pump w/one that has the oil cooler outlet fitting to get the OEM oil cooler setup on your 2014 WK2?
Do you have skid plates installed and would the sandwich type Mopar oil cooler still fit if you did? What actual oil temps are you running now w/ the oil cooler setup? Do you tow a lot? In the summer? Or up steep grades? Please enlighten us! Thanks

Re: Engine Oil Cooler 5.7 engine

I have always preferred air to air heat exchangers for oil, trannie, diff and brake cooling to ones that use coolant and piggyback on a vehicles cooling system. If I had V8 GC and needed additional oil cooling a nice Setrab, Earl's lines and a sandwich adapter w/a thermostat would be my first choice. It wouldnt be that expensive and installation wouldnt be that tough.

Yes an air to oil cooler definitely would be cheaper & an easier install, but those types of coolers may tend to cool to much, especially in the winter months for northern climates, even with a thermostat built in. That type of setup would also have to be pieced together from various aftermarket parts and isn't available as a WK2 specific "kit". The OEM oil to coolant setup linked to above utilizes the computerized temp control parameters of your WK2 OEM radiator that should easily handle the job and keep temp. parameters within factory specs. You would also not have to fab brackets & mount another air cooled fluid cooler in front of your OEM radiator and condenser negatively affecting those OEM coolers ability to cool as designed.

So lets hear about the install...... tell us what you did and how it went!

Re: Engine Oil Cooler 5.7 engine

While I am disappointed that it does not have one (and a bit tweaked that the build sheet and literature say it has one) I'm not too concerned. If it "should" have had one it would have been in there for the 5.7.
