High-Pressure Cooler Repair

The Team to Trust for High-Pressure Oil Cooler Repair

Most large trucks, equipment, and stationary power units are equipped with high-pressure oil coolers to prevent engine overheating. Problems that start in the oil cooler can lead to much more substantial complications, later on, so you should be sure to address these issues as quickly as possible. Turn to the team at Southpointe Radiator to make sure your high-pressure oil cooler is in good working order.

Identifying and fixing oil cooler problems

Solid metal lines run from the oil cooler to your engine, a design that allows for the cooling of oil before it runs through the engine’s parts. This works in conjunction with your machine’s radiator to control the heat the engine produces. If your machine is experiencing oil cooler issues, you will likely notice one of the following issues:

  • Reduction in engine power
  • Burnt oil consumption
  • The rapid increase in engine temperature

One of the most common problems is that the oil cooler’s tubes are clogged with debris, which can contaminate the oil. In many situations, the oil cooler can be cleaned. Here’s how we get that done:

  1. The cooler is high-pressure washed to remove external contamination
  2. The caustic citrus chemical is reverse-flushed through the entire cooling passage
  3. Cooler is flushed
  4. The cooler is then tested at 200 psi to test the integrity
  5. Painted at customers’ request

Through regular maintenance, you can avoid having to replace the oil cooler on your heavy-duty equipment before you absolutely need to do so. Identifying potential problems early on is key to ensuring that your machine’s engine stays running smoothly and safely. If your machine’s oil is contaminated or not running through the engine properly, it could damage multiple pieces of equipment—leading to expensive repairs.
