In Reply to: HOW CAN I TELL IF THE OIL COOLER IS BAD OR CLOGE?? posted by ADAMK on September 04, 2001 at 16:13:16:

You can use a infer-red temp reader to verify your gauge's reading. It will not be 100% dead nuts, but if your gauge shows 225 and your oil filter reads 175 this hints at a problem with either the sender (more likly) or the gauge itself.

RE: oil coolers
All FAA licensed plains need to have their oil coolers cleaned and tested every 100 flight hours. Go to your local (small) airport and find the folks who do the testinf/cleaning for single/dual engine propeller airplanes. they can clean yours.
