Default Engine oil cooler and steering fluid cooler or not?

After reading through another post, I see that I don't have the RPO for the engine oil cooler:

KC4 - engine oil cooling system

But... having been under my car 9000 times, I know there are lines that run from the oil filter adapter to the radiator. I would assume that is the oil cooler.

Also, is there a steering fluid cooler? Because I can't find one.

Some cars had a power steering fluid cooler, but not sure what years they were available

Here is a thread with pics.

and the PS cooler is located on the frame as you can see in the pics

Possible it would be elsewhere on a 92? I do not have one there.

Me either.

I find it odd I don't have one.

95 SE has T2V with the Power steering cooler... Both of the 91'* also have the Steering Cooler

And all of the 92-93 SSE SC and SSEi'* should all have HD cooling... V08 I think, this should include the Oil Cooler

I know my 93 SSE SC does not have it, or it is in a different location cause I has no trouble getting the sway bar out.

maybe it'* an NA thing....
