200 tdi oil cooler question

do I need to re fill the oil cooler in the radiator and prime the lines when I replace the radiator or does the pump do all the work for me? Also how much oil does the cooler hold, about a quart? I am assuming I can hook everything up and then just add whatever I loose in the old radiator to the engine? Thanks in advance.

Jason:
1 Fill the engine up with oil to the full mark on the dipstick.
2. When you're ready with everything else, start and run the engine for say four or five minutes and then cut it off.
3. After it sits for around 5 minutes, check the oil again and top off if needed.

Don't be concerned about the volume going through the oil cooler.
The oil pump will pump it through and the dipstick mark will allow for the volume (especially after you check it and top up if needed).

Hope this helps.

I'm pretty sure the oil cooler uses a thermostat, so nothing will go through it until it is hot enough. It is just a simple tube and holds very little oil.
