John,
here is a great link to enable you to find more about vehicles in general -
http://www.meineke.com/stuff_about_cars/how_work_cooling.asp#text
It takes you to a site related for cooling, read ALL the text on the page - we know you are a skim reader - the diagrams help.
Or print off the text version and get the boys to test that you have understood it all !
THEN - go onto the - RETURN TO HOW THINGS WORK - this takes you to all the major functions of a vehicle.
It is a good starting point.
Now here is a link for engine oil and auto trans coolers - FAQ's cover only the basics.
http://www.permacool.com/faq/coolers.html
The next one is a bit off beat but it should make you smile
http://www.uh.edu/engines/epi1050.htm
Here is another "how do cooling systems....."
http://chevyhiperformance.com/techarticles/148_0504_how/
Finally on Google - simply type in - overcooling engine - and read some articles - the one by Caterpillar, they should know all there is to know, is good and talks about oil contamination.
Gareth.

On the issue of warm up the factory manual doesn't recommend running
the engine at tickover for extended periods and I remember that last
year we debated the subject particularly with reference to warming up
the car on a cold morning.
Well, this morning it is bloody cold and I had 2" of snow on the bonnet
and windscreen and a lot of ice - what I now do is to start the car,
let it run for about a minute or so to get the oil pressure up and then
use the hand throttle/choke lever (down to the right of the steering
column) to bring the revs up to around 2000rpm for a few minutes to
warm up the engine and the cabin.
It works a treat and also warms up a lot quicker with the blind down on
the radiator.
