From a physics perspective, brakes on automobiles are built to convert kinetic energy (your moving vehicle) into heat energy (friction). In a car, for example, the car then stops because of the energy conversion.
Your vehicle’s engines are subjected to extreme heat during use. To prevent your engine from overheating and to mitigate wear and tear, heat exchanger parts like an engine oil cooler can redirect the heat by circulating hot oil. When using quality parts, you can see the improvement in your engine’s reliability as your engine oil cooler is durable enough to take on the extreme heat your engine releases.
