i will need someone to do the work. I have been told that the transmission cooler breaks down putting water into the transmission oil thus destroying the transmission.

Okay so I'm really confused what your question is then? Have you check the transmission fluid to see if there's actually water in it?If you're not going to actually change the cooler what exactly are you asking?

Ok, well any shop capable of this is going to know what to do, but basically I would buy something such as this product I've linked to below, and install that. They will find a suitable place to put it that has suitable ground clearance and good airflow.If I've answered your question to your satisfaction please remember to hit accept next to my name, otherwise the site won't pay me for my time.If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask. You can post follow up questions even after hitting accept.
