Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9954604A1] An exhaust-driven cooling system (13) for an internal combustion engine system (10) permits cooling system components (20, 22-25, 30) to be located at locations (152) that do not interfere with the aerodynamics of a vehicle (150) and do not endanger the reliability of engine operation and also permits the engine lubricating fluid, preferably synthetic oil, to be used as the engine coolant, eliminating a separate coolant, such as the water-antifreeze mixture most commonly in use. In the invention, the cooling system components, such as a turbocooling assembly (110) of the invention, are not mechanically connected to the internal combustion engine (11) and can more reliably and effectively cool an internal combustion engine (11).
