Its internal to the radiator, much like the Trans cooler lines... But the oil cooler is on the drivers side of the radiator...
WHOA THERE!!! Are we talk'n the same H-Bodied Crankcase Oil Cooler Here???!!!
Our cars do have an "Oil Cooler" but it is NOT what you are describing. According to my FSM, the "Oil Cooler" sits between the Oil Filter Adapter and the Oil Filter itself. It looks like it is nothing more than a Heat Sink. There are no water lines going to or from this hunk of metal!
A lot of the Bonneville SSE'* and possibly a few of the Bonnevilles with HD cooling had the oil cooler in the radiator... Had lines that resemble tranny cooler lines... Some of the chevy 4.3 V6 had a simmilar set up as well... and that radiator is specific.. Some of the 92-93 Bonneville SSE and SSE'* also had this option... There was an adapter plate for the oil cooler lines... I don't think too many other H bodies used them... Its even stated in the owners manual if you have an SSE 89-91 for sure, you may need to add more oil due to the oil cooler...lol

Nope... You aren't missng anything... I don't have all of the toys on either of my cars... Just more headaches is all it would be to me... But I would still love to have an SSE just for **** & Giggles... lol..

I don't know how much good the oil coolers really did... I know the caddiliacs had them at one point too.. Odd what GM does... And engines without them still go far beyond 200,000-300,000 miles too...
