What Is A Transmission Cooler?
As you can probably infer the transmission cooler plays a role in… cooling. The fluid that is heated by your transmission, engine, or power staring pump gets routed to the transmission cooler. Air then moves over the fins of the cooler and cools the fluid. Eventually that fluid is routed back to the parts of the engine which cause the fluid to heat up in the first place. This is obviously a crucial aspect of a healthy functioning transmission.
The number one downfall of transmissions and engines in general is when overheating occurs. Over heating can cause issues with you entire engine, including the possibility of you, “blowing a gasket”, which is something no vehicle owner wants to hear. A healthy transmission cooler plays a critical role in ensuring that your transmission stays at a temperature that is within a safe operating level.
