I checked mine this evening and I do not have the engine oil cooler. The adapter is bolted to the engine block and the oil filter screws into the adapter. If there was a cooler, as has been said, it would be attached to the adapter and the filter to the cooler. I thought I read somewhere that the 2003 Expy did have the oil cooler, and then again, maybe it was the Explore. I don't tow and I use synthetic oil after 5,000 miles so it really doesn't concern me that I don't have the engine oil cooler.
