1999 ford 7.3l auto suggestions cooler/ upgrades please
Hello, I just got a 1999 2wd 7.3L short box, extra cab. It is auto and I assume the 4r100. I wanted some suggestions, upgrades to prevent transmission failure. I was told this tranny is the weak link in the drivetrain due to cooling issues.
I was thinking
1. The tru cool extra heavy duty mounted with the stock tranny with no bypass (I live in AZ) I figure about $150 new
2. The 6.0 transmission cooler: cost is $294 at the ford dealership for a 26 row. plus fittings$$
also a larger transmission pan? and maybe a pusher fan mounted on the front of the tranny cooler if I mount the tru cool in front of the radiator?
Please give me some suggestions on this? Is the 6.0 tranny cooler really worth double the cost plus fittings??
thanks everyone, I want to do this the same time I change my transmission filter and fluid. ( Mobil 1 full syn transmission fluid or amsoil?)
