Never do you bypass a transmission cooler. Your transmission will overheat if you do. It doesn't matter weather you tow something or not.

YESSSSS FOR SURE YOU CAN AND IT"S BETTER TO DO IT IF YOU LIVE IN A HOT CLIMATE (FROM 10 DEGREES CELCIUS )

THE MOST IMPORTANT IS TO INSTALL THE BIGGER TRANS COOLER OR 2 MEDIUM SIZE IN FRONT OF THE CAR JUST BEHIND THE GRILL

DON'T PUT HEAT FIRST PASSING TROUGHT THE STOCK RADIATOR

I HAVE INSTALLED 2 MED SIZE ON A GRAND CHEROKEE AND A BIG ONE ON MY 86 F150 FOR BOTH I BYPASS THE STOCK RAD

NO MORE TRANS HEAT PROBLEMS SINCE 3 YEARS

SMOOTH COOL RIDE AND ATF KEEPS HIS COLOUR AND FUNCTIONS LONGER

TRANS GAUGE HAVE BEEN INSTALLED TOO AND I READ 170-175°F EVEN IN STOP AND GO TRAFFIC WITH A/C IN MAX POSITION

DO NOT BELIEVE ANYBODY EXCEPT YOUR TRANS GAUGE BECAUSE IT WILL NEVER LIE

NEXT I WILL INSTALL A DEEP PAN

BEAT THE HEAT IN ALL SITUATIONS

Some do and some don't. Crawl under the vehicle, follow the transmission lines to the radiator, and see if there is an secondary cooler anywhere. If it came with the factory towing package it does.


Why does my 1999 dodge ram transmission get hot?

Is the transmission cooler fins clean and free of debris. Are you towing a heavy load? If so, I recommend you install a aftermarket transmission cooler. If it is getting hot and you are not towing, you need to seek out a professional to find out why it is getting hot. Do not continue to drive this vehicle or you will be spending big bucks for a new transmission. Heat is the biggest enemy of a transmission.

What is the towing capacity of a 2001 Honda Odyssey?

Normally towing should not induce any extra wear on your vehicle, in some cases a transmission cooler is recommended to keep the transmission fluid at an appropriate temperature. However, the Honda Odyssey has many recorded problems with the transmission failing early. Some are fortunate enough to have it fail withing warranty, I have a friend who is on his third transmission in under 120k miles. So I would not recomend towing with your Odyssey. Adding extra weight for your van to tow will shorten the life of your transmission even further on this particular vehicle. A quick search on the problems of the transmission on this vehicle, including a class action lawsuit for certain years that extended the warranty.

Does a dodge ram 1500 5.7 need a transmission cooler for towing a travel trailer?

If your 1500 ram hemi came with a tow package you already have a transmission cooler. I would compare with others to make sure you have the correct cooler for towing. You can always upgrade to larger coolers but may not be necessary. Some use the 1 ton cooler but that would be seems overkill to me.

If your transmission was damaged during the towing of your repossessed vehicle which you recovered can you get the towing company or lender to pay for the damages?

Probably not. The risk was yours since towing was the logical next step for failing to meet the requirements of the loan. It was your failure to meet the requirements of the loan which led to the vehicle being repossessed which subsequently caused the vehicle to be towed. All the towing company needs to do is to prove that they used standard towing practices.

No, not unless it has the optional towing package and the trailer is equipped with trailer brakes. Even then this is a stretch for this vehicle. I would not attempt to tow this much weight with this vehicle unless you are towing a very short distance. You need a transmission cooler for sure.


What causes transmission to over heat on a 2004 gm pickup?

What do I need to know in order to get my 1992 Toyota corolla wagon to pull a small utility trailer?

First and foremost you need to know the towing capacity of this vehicle. Then you need to purchase a good receiver hitch such as this one. http://performance.thepartsbin.com/basket.php?makeid=25&modelid=316&year=1992&partid=200&brandid=2608 Then you need to wire that car so that you can connect the trailer lights to the car. This is not a good car to tow with, so make sure you are towing a very small trailer with a small load. And remember that you have to stop this vehicle with the extra weight behind it. On a wet road when towing a trailer with no trailer brakes, you can get in big trouble trying to stop. If you plan on towing very often or in hills, then I highly recommend you install a transmission cooler. It is very easy to ruin a transmission when towing with a small car with a small engine. Heat is the enemy of any A/T and towing creates heat. A $100 trans cooler is a great investment when towing.
