Transmission cooler is a good start to help it live a better longer life, but it doesn't add tow capacity. I need to know what motor, trans & gear ratio. If its 5.7 (350) with either the 4L60E or 700R4 with 3:42 or 3:73 gears GCW is about 6500 lbs. I gave you very common drivetrain for those vans for a ballpark.
A parole springs from a cooler.
A max of 3,500 lbs with 2 occupants when equipped with a transmission cooler and power steering fluid cooler
Depends if you are only draining the transmission and changing the filter, or purging to remove the fluid in the torque converter and transmission cooler as well.
Transmission Coolers extend the life of your transmission.
If there are lines coming from the transmission to the radiator, it has a cooler in the radiator. If there are lines from the transmission to an external heat exchanger, that would be an auxiliary cooler.
It is on the front of the transmission, next to the cooler hoses.It is on the front of the transmission, next to the cooler hoses.
A transmission cooler is usually mounted just in front of the radiator.
yes you can
An external transmission cooler is normally added in line with a vehicles already existing transmission cooler built into the radiator its function is to cool the transmission only. Adding, replacing and or repairing a transmission cooler would only benefit the transmission by cooling the transmission fluid. The transmission cooler is used mainly for cooling transmissions that pull heavy loads like trailers but is also used a lot in racing to keep the fluid cooler which helps reduce transmission overheat or burnout. , EzForJesus
According to the 1997 Mercury Mountaineer owners manual : Your 4R70W automatic transmission capacity is ( 13.9 quarts ) * that of couse would be for the transmission , torque converter , lines , transmission cooler , etcetera *
transmission cooler lines runs from transmission to the radiator
