Re: trans/converter oil flow

I can't recall which way the oil flows as I've never really throught about anything but keeping the fluid cool and clean.

I'd be checking that fluid again within a short period of time.

You are correct.It goes from pump to convertor to cooler out the front line and then returns in the rear line for the lube circuit.
