You do have one if you have an auto- its sandwiched between the AC condenser and the radiator. If you pull back on that rubber piece between the header support and the grille and look down there you can see it.

Yes;

Most E-99’s do not have the radiator internal cooler like the 99.5-03, which in my opinion is a good thing. The e-99 and 99.5-03 have the same undersized 20K external cooler sandwiched in between all the other coolers and radiator and condensers and crap.

What I did was when I put the reman tranny in I removed the factory 20K cooler and replaced it with a Trucool 40K cooler like the factory V-10 cooler for around $130. I had to replace the old cooler for the new tranny warranty to be good so why not upsize while at it.

Here are you some pics of the coolers on my truck;

ALL FORD SUPERDUTY TRUCKS HAVE TRANS COOLERS OF SOME SORT!

The photos posted above are just like every early 99 I've seen... including my own. Alabama Frog, Strokin Early 99, and myself are experts with the early 99.


Now, who is everyone?

No, don't T, if you T the fluid will take the path of least resistance, you need to run them in series, run into first cooler, out of it then into second cooler then out of it back to tranny. That way the fluid is forced to flow through both coolers. Also try to mount the cooler so the fittings are on top. When I bought my aux Trucool 40K it came with a piece of hose and the fittings and clamps, everything I needed to install it for $120.

I opted to mount the second cooler on the backside of the front bumper and ran the hot line into the first cooler and then into the bumper cooler then back to the tranny. Made one heck of a difference in temps.

Just get a factory 6.0 cooler- a few hours in the driveway, super easy install. You spend more time moving crap out of the way than actually installing the cooler. I bought one for $40... deals are out there you just gotta hunt.
