Overheating after radiator remove and reinstall.
I had to replace ac clutch. So I took radiator out. Clutch fan. Shrouds etc.
I chopped up the rear fan shroud and tossed it since it is a nightmare and kept upper section to hold fan harness.
Now after everything is back together transmission overheats big time. I have external gauges and Edge CTS before people get pissy with stock gauge accuracy.
I thought it was my external trans filter clogged because housing was hot as hell but cooler lines werent. So replaced the nasty filter and no joy trans still over heats.
Disconnected cooler lines one at a time to check flow. They both flow. input and output of tranny cooler.
Now I am at a loss. I have noticed while draining some fluid, fluid is pretty damn dark. Not black but pretty dark.
I don't thing a quick drain and refill of trans fluid will keep me from overheating
