Research on Oil Cooler for BMW M5
The oil cooler in your BMW M5 is an integral part of your car's cooling system. As an engine runs it will build up the heat and that heat needs to be released. The radiator at the front of the engine compartment is responsible for cooling off the liquid coolant before it passes through the engine and takes away the extra heat. The oil cooler has a similar function by pulling the heat out of the engine oil. The oil cooler is fed the hot oil from a piece on your car that is located between the engine block and the engine oil filter.
How It Works
Inside the oil cooler is a series of tubes. When the hot oil is distributed through the tubes the coolant of the car flows around the tubes and pulls the heat out of the oil. There is a transfer of heat from the oil to the coolant through the walls of the tubes called a water to oil type of heat exchange. The hot coolant then flows to the radiator of your car and is cooled by the air that passes through the radiator. This process is continuous while you drive the car.
On a BMW e60 M5 oil cooler, there is an adapter that connects the oil lines to the cooler. There is one that sends the oil to the cooler and another that sends the cooled oil back to the oil pan. Inside the adapter, there is a rubber gasket. Over time the rubber gasket can begin to fail. If this happens, there will be evidence of some oil leaking beneath the engine. Depending on the extent of the leak determines how quickly you should make the necessary repair. You don't want to drive your M% without the proper amount of engine oil in it.
In the same way that an RPI oil cooler can eventually have an oil leak it can also have a coolant leak. If the coolant begins to leak because of a problem with the oil cooler or an adapter, then soon there will not be sufficient coolant passing around the tubes to cool the engine oil. The leak often starts small and gets larger over time. It is important to do an e60 M5 oil cooler DIY replacement soon before your M5 engine overheats.
Another circumstance that can point to a problem with your oil cooler is that the oil and coolant are mixing. Either there may be engine oil in your cooling system or you may notice coolant in the oil pan. Both situations are not good and need to be addressed quickly. If you bring your M5 to a local repair shop or the dealer you will spend hundreds of dollars to do the replacement. If you need some help to do the job on your own, you can watch some online videos that can detail the replacement step by step. The videos can walk you through replacing the whole oil cooler or just a damaged adapter. To get the best parts at the best price visit PartsGeek.com.
