Re: Transmission cooler
My 1994 5.7 K1500 Silverado has the tranny cooler mounted in front of
condenser then radiator.This is a factory install.The air hits the Tranny
Cooler first.I tow and have 150,000 miles on my Tranny no
slippage,banging,still nice smooth shifting.
I had a Ford Expeditionwith no Tranny Cooler.I towed the same with this as
the Truck.Tranny was rebuilt at 78,000 miles and again at 134,000. I am sure
if I had a TrannyCooler it would of lasted longer(HEAT KILLS)
P.S. Did not mean to insult using my Chevy as an example.Also have a 1994
Mustang GT.Like new.
