Oil coolers play a crucial role in maintaining the optimal temperature of a vehicle’s engine oil.When something goes wrong with the oil cooler, this will need repairing or resolving as soon as possible, and your oil cooler may even need to be remanufactured. This is what we excel at here at MRS Heat Transfer Ltd. But what are the benefits of professional repair or remanufacture for oil coolers?
What is an oil cooler?
Oil coolers are typically found in vehicles with liquid-cooled engines, such as cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Their primary purpose is to prevent the engine oil from overheating, which can lead to accelerated wear and damage to critical engine components. As the engine oil circulates through the cooler, it comes into contact with a series of small fins or tubes. These fins or tubes provide a large surface area for heat exchange, allowing excess heat to be transferred to the surrounding air or coolant.
Efficient heat dissipation is crucial for maintaining the viscosity and lubrication properties of the engine oil. If the oil becomes too hot, its viscosity may decrease, compromising its ability to provide adequate lubrication. Additionally, high oil temperatures can accelerate the breakdown of additives and cause the oil to oxidize, leading to increased engine wear and decreased overall performance.
Why is professional repair or remanufacture for oil coolers important?
Considering the vital role oil coolers play in engine health, it is crucial to choose a professional service for their repair or remanufacture. There are a number of reasons why, including:
- Expertise and experience: Professional repair or remanufacture service providers in the UK have the knowledge, expertise, and experience required to effectively diagnose and resolve issues with oil coolers. They understand the intricacies of these components and can accurately assess whether a repair or remanufacture is the most suitable course of action.
- Quality assurance: Reputable professionals use high-quality replacement parts and follow industry-standard repair procedures. This ensures that your oil cooler is restored to its original specifications and performance. Choosing professionals also often comes with warranties, offering you peace of mind and protection against any potential issues that may arise.
- Safety and reliability: Oil coolers are intricate components that are integrated into the engine’s cooling system. Mishandling or improper repair can lead to leaks, loss of coolant, or even engine damage. By opting for professional repair or remanufacture, you can be confident that the work will be carried out safely and reliably, minimizing the risk of further problems down the line.
- Cost-Effectiveness: While it may be tempting to opt for a DIY repair or an unqualified service to save money, it can end up costing you more in the long run. Poorly executed repairs or the use of subpar replacement parts can lead to recurring issues and premature failure. Professional repair or remanufacture may involve a higher upfront cost, but it ensures that the job is done right the first time, potentially saving you from expensive repairs or replacements later on.
