ok heres my problem there isn't enough room in front of condenser for cooler it would hit grill and hood latch mechanism is it possible then that water temp could be raising trans temp I pulled out the thermostat completely thinking that would run coolest correct??
don't worry ill give you the 29 bucks but ive got a few more questions as far as I can tell you have not mentioned mounting the trans cooler anywhere else on truck so I guess that wouldn't be an option for me and also by running the alum. deep pan wont that help it run cooler also and could you explain that part about running it with no thermostat also I am not running it with original clutch fan ive got electric fans hooked up to it also can the pressure side of trans fluis hose be put on with a couple of hose clamps cause I don't have that tool to take apart the hose so I was just gonna cut it and double clamp it for temporary
Hi,Ok, the cooler has to have air drawn thru it cool the fluid. This means in front of a fan. Technically you can mount it just about anywhere in the front, even just behind the front bumper, but to be most effective, it needs to be in front of a fan as close as possible. The additional fluid capacity with a deep pan will help, but by itself without a separate cooler, would not be enough for the Arizona heat. Both together should be sufficient.Ok, when the engine is cold, the computer increases fuel in fuel to air ratio so it starts easier. and then as it warms up, it decreases the ratio. With no thermostat, it can read colder which increases fuel too much and can cause hard starts, and then because the coolant is not heating up enough as it is running thru the cooling system without a chance to heat up from engine block temp, the fuel ratio stays increased, which can cause stumbling or hesitation and a rich condition.On the closed loop/open loop mode:
ok last one I wont take up anymore of your time can I use hose clamps on both hoses (pressure side ??) to hold them sufficiently double clamped even and two more things does it matter which hose is mounted to top of trans cooler and I wasn't sure if coolant helps vehicle run cooler as opposed to straight water or is coolant just to keep it from freezing in cold weather something I obviously don't have to worry about and if I run into any problems can I ask you more questions thanks oh yeah I almost forgot how do I send the 29 bucks to you ive already gave card info
