95 Impala ss radiator leak engine oil cooler?

Hey guys sorry if this is a double post. I need to replace my radiator in my 95 Impala ss Iíve seen various options for radiators. My question is does my year Impala come stock with engine oil cooler located internally in the radiator? And what brands would you recommend for an all stock motor Impala, thanks a lot guys!

If I'm not mistaken ALL Impala's came with the engine oil cooler option.

I would try to find an all aluminum Silla brand radiator.

All Impalas came with external oil coolers that are located in front of the radiator. The only Caprice models that did not have the oil cooler are the L99s, and I believe even some of them had external oil coolers.

1991 OCC 461 (.030 over 454) BBC, 3.23 posi, flash to pass, drop spindles & springs, Impala rims, Hydroboost, Recaros, MOMO/wood SW w/QR, custom wood shift knob, Pioneer DEH P77DH
1992 OCC now with 5.7 tbi, DEH P77DH

the stock SS radiator has both oil and tranny cooler

The "external" cooler on the PS (in front of condenser) is also a additional tranny cooler the SS has. IDK if other B-body models also have a external tranny cooler like SS

9C1 SEO option was a "external" oil cooler (usually fleet cop and cab B-body's) that mounts on DS and those radiators did not also include a radiator oil cooler. The DS side tank of those radiators are curved to allow the external oil cooler lines to get around it to the external oil cooler

Some of us have added this "external" oil cooler which also requires different oil cooler lines and the different oil cooler lines do get around a regular radiator

Sorry, not true .

For 94-96 anyway

Impalas had the left rad tank mounted liquid to liquid engine oil cooler

9C1 Caprice had front mounted engine air to oil oil cooler .

Some Caprice LT1s had no engine oil cooler
Those used both rad tanks for transmission cooling
