Fitting a new cooler to my r32 gtr when its all plumbed in im wondering how will the rad fill with oil? I cant understand how the oil stat is going to open with the car idling?-which is how ive read that it fills up. My understanding is this stat will only open around 90 degrees or so which would be got by hard driving only? Confused

It will fill when you hit the temp required to open the thermostat. Mine is 70. Once you've driven it the cooler will be filled. After that check the level and top up if required. You can feel the cooler if ness and it will be very hot to the touch so you know its working!

Ya ok so your saying it wont fill if I just leave the car idle? Its a mocal sandwich plate and i dont know wot temp it opens at. So if I leave the car idle and the rad doesnt heat up the rad then is empty your saying its ok to drive the car? and keep an eye on the rad and top up when the rad is full? Thanks for reply will
