Oil Cooler Lines

Whats the deal with the oil cooler lines on a 300 tdi? Do they spontaneously combust as well? Can they be eliminated? Can the radiator be used to cool trans fluid for a ZF instead?

There is nothing super hot on the right side of any of the LR diesel motors. The V8 oil cooler lines spray the exhaust manifold and the combustion process starts. On a LR diesel you will just have an oily mess and loose oil pressure making a completely different set of problems.

Thanks, So keep the cooler for engine oil intact and add the ZF cooler for trans fluid?

Bill, the Diesel ZF uses a different cooler than the V8 "hairbrush" model.
