Is the oil cooler or transmission fluid cooler in the radiator? So how does the oil get cooled from the outside air?
And why does oil need to be cooled? What is the benifite of it being cooler than hotter?
Thanks people

No, the oil and transmission coolers are outside of the radiator, and function in the same basic function as a radiator.

Its not so much that people want the oil to be cooler for performance gains, but just to keep the engine safe. Mostly they are only needed in high heat applications(like the Viper) or in race cars.
