Re: trasmition cooler

i to have been looking for a cooler & have found that Ford dont even offer one as an option just like the AU the BA's dont get a trans cooler

the only option is to go for an aftermarket cooler, i prefer the old snake type cooler but have been told that the radiator type cool better

regards
rod

Re: trasmition cooler

Unless you are towing or have a hi-stall converter I wouldn't bother with an external cooler.

If you need one I recommend a B & M Supercooler. About $100 plus a few bucks for some hose and clamps. They are easy to fit yourself.

Re: trasmition cooler

Aren't the trans coolers inside the radiator?
I'm 99% sure.
I worked in a Ford Dealer last year & replaced a radiator cos the trans cooler was leaking oil into the coolant.
There should be 2 lines from the trans, that go into the top left side of the radiator.

Re: trasmition cooler

What are the real advantages of these? Obviously keeping your transmission cool keeps it safe when pushing it hard, and stalling it up at the lights etc. Will this improve the life of the transmission significantly?

If $200 is all you have to pay it sounds like a good idea
