Mishimoto Oil Cooler Kit – Nissan 370Z 09+/ Infiniti G37 Coupe 08+

Please note that the installation process for the Mishimoto Oil Cooler Kit may vary based on the specific model year of your Nissan 370Z or Infiniti G37 Coupe. It is essential to follow the manufacturer’s instructions provided with the kit and consult with a professional if needed. However, I can provide you with a general overview of the installation steps:

Tools and Materials Needed:

  • Mishimoto Oil Cooler Kit
  • Jack and jack stands (for lifting the vehicle)
  • Socket set and wrenches
  • Screwdrivers
  • Pliers
  • Gasket sealant (if required)
  • Cooling system coolant (if required)

Installation Steps:

  1. Prepare the Vehicle:. Park your Nissan 370Z or Infiniti G37 Coupe on a level surface and engage the parking brake. Allow the vehicle to cool down if it was recently driven.
  2. Lift the Vehicle:. Use a jack to lift the front of the vehicle off the ground and support it securely with jack stands. Ensure the vehicle is stable and safe to work under.
  3. Drain the Cooling System (If Required):. If your vehicle’s model year requires coolant system disassembly, drain the cooling system following the manufacturer’s instructions. This step may involve removing the radiator cap or drain plug.
  4. Remove the Bumper:. Depending on the specific kit and vehicle model year, you may need to remove the front bumper to access the oil cooler installation points. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for bumper removal.

  5. Install the Oil Cooler:. Mount the Mishimoto Oil Cooler in the designated location using the provided brackets and hardware. Ensure the cooler is securely attached and aligned properly.
  6. Attach the Oil Lines:. Connect the oil lines from the oil cooler to the engine using the provided fittings and clamps. Double-check the connections to ensure they are tight and leak-free.
  7. Install the Thermostatic Sandwich Plate:. If your kit includes a thermostatic sandwich plate, follow the instructions to install it in the oil filter’s location. This plate helps regulate oil flow to the cooler based on temperature.

  8. Reassemble the Bumper:. If you removed the front bumper earlier, reattach it following the manufacturer’s instructions.
  9. Refill the Cooling System (If Required):. If you drained the cooling system earlier, refill it with the appropriate coolant according to the vehicle’s specifications.
  10. Check for Leaks and Clearance:. After installation, start the engine and check for any oil or coolant leaks. Verify that the oil cooler has sufficient clearance from other components to avoid interference during operation.
  11. Lower the Vehicle: Carefully lower the vehicle from the jack stands.
  12. Final Inspection: Conduct a final inspection of the installed Mishimoto Oil Cooler Kit to ensure all connections are secure and properly aligned.

It is crucial to exercise caution and wear appropriate safety gear when working under the vehicle. If you are uncertain about any step or encounter difficulties during the installation, it is highly recommended to seek assistance from a professional automotive technician or a reputable mechanic to ensure a safe and proper installation.
