Some 2.7L engines may be equipped with an engine oil cooler (2) that is mounted to the rear transmission mount bracket. Oil lines route oil from the engine block to the cooler, which is connected to the engine cooling system.


WARNING: If the engine is at or near normal operating temperature, the coolant is hot enough to cause severe burns. Always allow the engine to cool down before removing any cooling system hoses.
