The risk is huge. You're talking about saving 250$ on a used cooler and risking total destruction of a 3000-5000$ transmission.

Always new. In fact, if I were to install a new tranny I would install new coolers.

They are not any good as far as I am concerned. Because of the very design it is physically impossible to flush them. Get a new one the price of a cooler is much less then the price of a trany!

I have no problem buying a used cooler. They make kits to clean them. If you are worried just plumb in some type of filter on the return line...
