My EA came with one standard, it had the tow pack with it also standard. Have a look infront of the radiator, if you see a another small lil radiator type thing you've got one. Trace the pipes back to make sure

Also how effective are the standard coolers? they're not very big and the oil has to travel a fair way to get to the actual cooler

They are effective ehough on a stock motor...how ever the best thing to do is to buy a biggest cooler you can fit or afford & bypass the radiator pipes so that the tranny oil only goes into the new cooler & not the radiator...This will reduce the heat transfer to the radiator water & vice versa & with the bigger cooler you can fit more oil which will help the transmission cooling & prolong it's life

Strange?!

Hey guys, you people are talking about a little radiator thing for the transmission cooler. Ive looked on mine and i dont have one yet i can see the 2 pipes running from the radiator to the tranny!
Ive got the standard radiator on the engine side and the other big radiator thinggo is the A/C condenser isnt it? Or is this the tranny cooler? if so where is the a/c condenser?

It appears you have no trans cooler. The Ford ones while appearing small are good in that they are designed so the fluid only flows through them when it's hot. And you can always buy two from a wrecker and fit them in series,

I looked at the front of my car, there is no small radiator but there are two realy big ones, I'd say this is the Engine one and the A/C one. I have two horns, hehehe how cool.

Did someone say that the tranny cooler goes into the radiator?
