coring

A phenomenon that occurs in some oil coolers at low atmospheric temperatures when the oil congeals and restricts the flow through the cooler. If this happens, a rise in oil temperature will take place without a corresponding rise in coolant or cylinder head temperature. In this case, the RPM should be increased and/or the shutters closed.
