TRANNY COOLER

Ok so i put my new tranny in and the first trip to work. It got hot and spit fluid everywhere so the guy I got the tranny from said my cooler was'nt working. I was looking at one from 4wheelparts it measures 10" tall by 20" wide and is 3/4" thick rated for 26000gvw is this big enough. Thanks Shawn

Just put a 6.0 cooler on if your stock one is shot. They work great!

the 6.0L cooler would be the best upgrade....

do you know how hot it got? you running gauges?

if not go with a cooler that is rated for 32k+

GET a 6.0 COOLER... then you are done with it.... Even if you pay 200$+ it is still worth it. Just watch ebay. They come up there all the time.

I worry about a guy that just says that your cooler isn't working. Is it plugged? Did the cooler get hot? The OEM cooler isn't very big at all but for a drive to work it should be just fine. If the plugged cooler is what trashed your last tranny then you really should have replaced it with the new trans.

If your OEM cooler is shot then for sure get the 6.0 cooler but if it is good then you can just get the trucool which is 40k btus to add to your OEM cooler to get a total of slightly more cooling than the 6.0 cooler. Since the trucool sets out in front of all of the radiators I would even propose that the trucool plus OEM is better than the 6.0 cooler.

Also, I haven't found a 6.0 cooler for less than 300$ other than from some guy on ebay. Sell them new from a site like dieselsite or Stealth for 200$ or less and then we'll have something.

well the big 6.0L cooler retails at almost 400 direct from ford...

i sell some for about 200 locally because they are missing the box they came in.. these are new coolers but without a box... but since they are soo large its very hard finding a box for them so i prefer not to ship them...

I put a 40K trucool in mine in line with my stock cooler and it really does an awesome job. I have done some fairly heavy towing in the mountains and in 90 degree+ heat and have not seen my temp go above 185-190. As for having a possible plugged cooler I would ditch the stock one and have the trans flushed, and filter changed.

I got two of them off ebay for cheap. One for 70 and the other right at 100. You just gotta know what to look for in your search...
