is your engine getting hot also?
Remember, the cooling of your transmission is only as good as the cooling system for your engine as the fluid passes through the bottom of the radiator. If the coolant is hot it wont effectively cool the transmission fluid. Also when is the last time it was serviced? The filter may be partially blocked and its a good idea to service the 4 speeder regularly anyway.
Has it just started to happen? as a little heat is normal but it should not be excessive.

how do you test for blockages in the cooler lines?

i would fit an aftermarket cooler anyway, the quickest way to kill an auto is to let it heat up.

you can get factory oil coolers from the wreckers i think, they were fitted to cars that were optioned with the tow pack.

I picked up a small tranny cooler for my 4sp from a wrecker while buying a new head. This one measures about 300mm x 100mm.

Is this roughly the size of the cooler that came with the tow pack?

I've seen some aftermarket ones a LOT bigger.

BTW- Just had my radiator rodded out. The radiator fella said it was half choked with crap. Should make a big difference don;t you think?!

AH YEAH!!! I'd say it will definately help not only your tranny but the risk of blowing a head gasket will now be reduced somewhat.
Just curious, how much do radiator places charge for a full pressure flush? might be a good idea with summer upon us...

Don't know know how much it for a flush but the cleanout job cost me $60 . I just took the radiator down to them.

Taking the radaitor out was easier than i thought...

I've been told that a flush won't clean out the radiator cores if they are blocked.

My local blokes will do a pressure flush for $20. Ask around.

Is a high pressure flush where they hook the radiator up to a pump and then ram water through it a few times?
