Tranny cooler question

Well my tranny is getting 90-110 over ambient when I get stuck in traffic so the stock cooler is not working. It does have a rebuilt tranny in it if that matters. I found a cooler at a auto part store in town and was wondering if it will work (hope so cause I already bought it) my question is do I remove the stock one completely or do I run it inline? It says its rated for 10000 lbs ill post a picture of it when I get home

My advice, for what it's worth...take it back and get a 6.0 cooler.

That's probably about the same size as the stock one. You need to check the size of fittings, if they are any smaller than stock don't run it. Otherwise, run it in series as the last cooler in the loop.

Have some experience with this, if you get a used 6.0 cooler your tranny guy will likely not cover your tranny anymore most will only cover it if its installed new. Just a word of caution.

the fittings are 3/8". How do you tell which one is the feed and which one is the return going into the stock one?

10k lbs is a little more than your truck weighs. Waste of money.
tru cool max 47391 would be a decent upgrade.

I know a 6.0L cooler is pricey, but it's a upgrade that is a MUST!!! if you are towing anything. My trans temp. hasn't gone over 150* and thats pulling my 8,000lb Keystone Laredo camper, the swap out is fairly easy, you need some 1/2" transmission line, the fittings to go from 3/8"-1/2" and about 2-3 hours too do the job. When you see the size of the 6.0L cooler is almost the same size as the a/c condensor thats how much larger it is compared too the stock cooler thats about the size of a computer keyboard.
