Like the title says, if I just bypass the oil cooler and splice the hoses together so it's water tight and holds the pressure, what is the worst that can happen.

Keep in mind that the car is being driven by a 18yr old that drives around in the burbs or at most 10-20 miles across town at any one time. No four wheeling or towing or major hill climbing or freeway travel.

Tranny or engine?

Engine oil cooler would be no problem. Some later models don't even have one so I'm been told. Transmission I would suggest the option in the previous post.

I bypassed my oil cooler about 40k miles ago, as well as the throttle body heater. I live in the South West, so the weather is pretty temperate (aka: hot)...

Plus, the idea of water+oil, or water+intake, I'm not a big fan of either of those options... LOL

Were giving you a run for the money heat wise here in Kansas City and surrounding areas. We're having our third week of 100+ heat :eek:
