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.
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.
Transmission Coolers extend the life of your transmission.

A transmission cooler is usually mounted just in front of the radiator.
These are cooler lines, the fluid flows in them from the transmission to the cooler in the radiator or auxiliary cooler then back on most vehicles to help in keeping the transmission from overheating ASE certified tech / L1
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 *
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

If this vehicle has a transmission cooler then it will have one line to the cooler then another for the return line to the transmission.
If it is a manual transmission you do not have transmission cooler lines. If its an automatic they will be on one side of the radiator and you can follow them to the tranny from there.
There are a few things that can cause this. First, plugged cooler lines from the transmission to the cooler, which usually is built into the radiator, or mounted in front of it. Second, plugged transmission cooler. Third, plugged filter in the transmission. Fourth, overloading the transmission. Fifth, if the cooler is in the radiator tank, and the engine is running too hot, it will also prevent it from cooling the transmission.
yes you can
Yes thay all have a transmission cooler built into the radiator, If you follow the 2 transmission lines that come from the side of the transmission up towards the front of the truck, you will see were thay hook to the cooler. Some had a second transmission cooler in front of the radiator if the truck came with a heavy duty tow package
Front of transmission, just below where the cooler hoses attach.Front of transmission, just below where the cooler hoses attach.
the cooler is part of the radiator.
The towing capacity of a 1991 Chevrolet Cheyenne 2500 is 7500 pounds. The manufacturer recommends having a transmission cooler installed before towing.
transmission cooler lines runs from transmission to the radiator
Never had a problem up to 3,000 lbs. Make sure o/drive is off, and transmission cooler installed.
The heated transmission oil flows through the cooler, and that heat is exchanged to the ambient air which flows through the fins of the cooler. The rapidly cooled fluid returns to the transmission.
The towing capacity is 1,000 lbs unless it is equipped with trailer brakes, and transmission cooler. With that equipment you can then tow up to 3,5000 lbs.
