Bought a replacement radiator and according to my VIN (9 in 8th position not Y) I had to get the one with the oil cooler. Upon replacement I was told this was the right radiator but there are no lines coming from the oil pump...... What am I missing here? It doesn't make sense that the car requires an oil cooler with no lines that run to it.......

Any insight?

Some had oil coolers, some didnt, you're likely not missing anything.

FWIW, I think you can add an oil cooler pretty easy as most of the oil filter adapters have the hook-ups, but they may not be connected to the radiator. Mine has plugs.... I've thought about adding one, but I have no issues.... Why fix what aint broke?

Sorry Ranger ~ I knew the lines had to come from something that had to do with the oil and being car illiterate I guessed.....

I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't going to hurt the car without any lines running to the oil cooler on the radiator...........

You guys are great! I really appreciate it.
