How do you attach the transmission cooler in front of the radiator or air conditioning condensor?

- Aug 07, 2019-

Several different options for mounting a transmission cooler are available. In the most common installation method, the cooler is attached with narrow plastic rods, pads, and fasteners. The plastic rods are run through the transmission cooler and the radiator or air conditioning condensor and secured with the fastener. Another option is to use a rigid mount kit that includes bendable brackets to mount the cooler. You can use this option if the cooler has mounting points designed for brackets and your vehicle has suitable mounting points. A third option that consists of solid mounting brackets is available for stacked-plate type coolers.

 

The transmission oil cooler is usually a cooling pipe placed in the radiator of the radiator, and the coolant is cooled by the coolant flowing through the cooling pipe.


Principle

 

In a high-performance, high-power, enhanced engine, an oil cooler must be installed due to the large thermal load. The oil cooler is arranged in the lubricating oil circuit and works in the same way as the radiator. Engine oil coolers are classified into air-cooled and water-cooled. A car equipped with an automatic transmission must be equipped with a transmission oil cooler because the oil in the automatic transmission may overheat. Overheating of the oil can degrade the transmission performance and even damage the transmission. The transmission oil cooler is usually a cooling pipe placed in the radiator of the radiator, and the coolant is cooled by the coolant flowing through the cooling pipe. Connect the metal tube or rubber hose between the transmission and the cooler.
