Does the '94 ZJ 5.2 come with an oil cooler, does one even exist? if so where can I get one and how hard is it to install? I noticed that when I was sitting in the never ending construction traffic in PA that it looked like my oil was running a little hot. I noticed that the oil pressure would go down when the oil heated up and got thin. I was told to put 10w-30 oil in.

Also do you think these cherokee A-pillar gauge pods would work in my grand?

Is it possible to run temp. gauges for the trans, oil, and possibly t-case fluid? If it is possible to, where would I get the thermometers and how would I run the wires? I haven't found a place online to buy gauges yet though Crying or Very sad

Not sure if they came with an oil cooler, but you can get them cheap from Summit. You can also run synthetic oil that will stand up better to heat.

Actually, keep looking through the Summit catalog. You'll find temp senders and guages by the dozens. I wouldn't bother with the t-case, but you can find the others. If you've got an auto tranny, there should already be plumbing for the cooler you could tap into. Also, if you install an oil cooler, you could plumb the sending unit into the cooling circuit or near the pressure sender (not sure where it is on your engine but likely near the oil filter (I think.) Oh yeah, you could also do mechanical gauges which would eliminate the need for wiring, but then you'd be plumbing oil lines into the the dash or wherever you decided to mount your gauges.

If you have a towing package on teh grand you already have two tranny coolers.. If not your tranny cools thru the radiator ..YOu can tap into the lines there..

Someone does sell a gauge pod.... UMmmm...Hold on..


LOTEK.. sells gauge pods for Grand...
http://www.gaugepods.com/

And ...Code3 is right... Jegs has oil coolers.. Buy one of the ones that removes the filter and makes it a remote with a cooler.. then you will have easier access to the filter and a little more oil capacity and the cooler you wanted..

When I install the oil cooler, about how much more fluid will I be able to put in? And if I install a trans. cooler, how much more fluid will that be able to hold?

Both depend on the size and style of cooler you use... Average is about a quart or two... Depends on the size of the unit you buy ....

Tranny coolers usually go by weight... (Bigger for heavier vehicles...)
