external trans cooler leak !
i have noticed in the last few weeks a couple of drops of transmission fluid coming from my external trans cooler. the cooler is the original to my truck, has 102,000miles on it. trans mission was flushed at 70kmiles and both trans filter replaced then. so far the level of the trans fluid is normal, fluid color still looks new. the leak appears to run down lower cooler bracket on the drivers side. the cooler is 14inches tall.
i am at a loss as to WHY ? the cooler is leaking?
could one of these filters be clogging? causing a restriction, causing the leak?
I also had the Bullet Proof Diesel all aluminum radiator installed in my truck around 5k miles ago, i know there is a internal trans cooler in the radiator, but there does not appear to be any fluid leaking from the trans cooler radiator lines.
