Every Gen 5 Outback has two transmission (i.e. CVT) fluid coolers, plumbed in series. The 3.6 has a rudimentary engine oil cooler sandwiched between the oil filter and its mount. The 2.5 does not have an engine oil cooler.

what he said
cars101.com is a helpful resource and should clarify that. go there, pick your model and "control F" to search it for "cooler" or something like that.

technically you should monitor actual fluid temps and address as necessary. weight is a low grade and mechanically insufficient number to describe the physical quantities at work if you're towing enough to worry about dedicated oil coolers.
