Install a Transmission Cooler.

I saw the posts about people asking where\how to install these, so tada!
here it is..

make a pit stop at the local auto parts store for some Hi-Temp Transmission hose before ya get started. You'll also need a pack of the 'zip tie' clamps that they carry in their Radiator Supply area. They're used to hold electric fans & after market coolers onto the radiator.





You feed the ties through the radiator and into the mounting bracket of the cooler like so:





Next you have to cut the OEM Steel lines that come off the radiator, Or you have have the tools you can "T" it but this wasn't for a performance car, so they got cut =) the best way to cut them is with a brake line tube cutter as shown in the picture, anything else will smash the thin line closed.

Be aware you might loose some fluid, and do wait for the car to cool since the fluid can be over 150 degs.



Like mentioned before IF you have the tools, you can also flair the end of the tube to help hold the rubber hose on. Although 2 hose clamps work as well, when you put the hoses on the metal lines it will not matter what hose is clamped to what line, but i install the cooler and lines so the fluid can flow in a down-words flow. IE cooler is "sideways" and the pressure line is on the top port. best way to tell what line is what is before cutting the lines, start the car and put it in drive for about 45 secs. and feel what line is warmer, this will be the pressure line.


When routing the hoses do not bend the hoses to tight, ( no less that a 3" radius bend ) and stay far away from anything sharp.

The other cooler is the AC condenser, and every automatic has a cooler built into the radiator, by adding a cooler in line with the system it will help lower the temps below your radiator coolant temp =)

What makes you think you need one?

Manual cars don't really see the overheating transmission issues that automatics do. But in theory, you could put on a cooling jacket, and a pump, and put a second rad in, and run a secondary cooling system.

Probably going to waste your time and see no actual results from it though.
