Surrounding the engine is a maze of pipes that maintains an oil supply at a consistent, optimal temperature and provides a cooling effect on the engine. It maintains engine velocity, for when the vehicle is heated the velocity decreases and the oil cannot reach the components.

Here the engine oil travels from a heat exchanger element. It is made functional by adding heat to the cold oil or reducing the heat from the excess oil.


The radiator enables engine oil to cool through the cooling fans. The cooling process works through a thermostat that is controlled through a bypass valve. It stops the engine oil from passing through the cooler. It waits for the desired temperature to be reached.
