This article provides the means of improving engine oil cooling systems in automobiles. The need for the improvement arises due to the frequent breaking down of automobiles as a result of congestion, temperature and nature of the Nigerian roads. In automobiles, the engine is either cooled by air using oil to air heat exchanger or by water using oil to water systems. For the engine to be cooled by air there must be sufficient air flow obtained at high speed. In order to provide solution to this problem, other method of cooling has to be used. Larger plate heat exchanger, Copper as heat exchanger material, additional radiator (oil to air) and a separate cooling circuit (water to air) were the examined factors adding to the cooling performance of the engine oil. Results from the simulation of this methods using Gamma Technology Suite (GTS) software shows that heat transfer rate above 26kW is achieved using any of the four methods. In the cause of this work, only the cooling system was considered.
