Factory oil cooler for Zetec

I'm trying to get something definitive. Reading threads on the factory oil coolers has left me with two questions.

1 What Coolers can we use other than the escape one. I have heard things about one off of a ranger?

2 if i order the assembly for a Zetec escape YL8Z6A642AA will it come with the center screw in adapter.

3. Our temps here hit 115 on a summer day. Will this cooler help much?

Have you experienced overheating or know what your current oil temps are? It is usually recommended NOT to add an oil cooler due to the extended dry start up that can occur. Unless its a dedicated track car, likely not recommended.

The SVT I think came with one as part of its motor and has spacer plates. you can buy a kit from FSwrks also that has an option for a thermostat which may help with the cold start/drain back.

remember that Ford tested these cars in death valley. unless if you know what your current temps are and if they are on the edge of overheating you likely better off with a better / larger radiator with a better coolant mixture.

You need to get your tune finished first , make sure how your fans are set , make sure you have a 180 thermostat and your oil temps will be fine with all that in check

I would also be using a synthetic oil

The stock coolant moves coolant over the oil filter area. Tom, I have the fans turned down and the 180 degree thermostat. It cools like a mother when I stop. However the steady highway temps are getting hugher.

so at idle your fine, but at speed your over heating? any thing you do is going to be band aid to a problem. check to make sure the radiator fins are clear, might want to do a coolant flush and put new coolant in.

I actually found a slight leak at the thermostat. Ordered a new houseing also removed and cleaned radiator inside and out. However I was wanting to add the coolant based oil cooler. I wanted to know if the came with the screw onto Piece for the center.

coolant based oil cooler? This is not a coolant based oil cooler, its an air cooler.

Most all the pictures for YL8Z6A642AA show it coming with the screw, so I would guess it would come with it. Call up a dealership and see if they have one in stock and can check the bag for you.

Quick searching shows that YL8Z6L626AA is the insert... might have to order both. and perhaps YL8Z6890 (the block side threaded insert)?

If your cooling system if up to par you shouldnt be running but in the 208-218 range at cruise , I would look at the timing in your tune and a few other things , tune has a big impact on the engine temp at cruise and wot , was the car running hot at cruise before the turbo ? If no then it shouldnt be now because at cruise the turbo on your engine has no impact

The head temp is calculated into you water temp , the sensor actually doesent go into any water but its very accurate
