Trans Heat Exchanger, wheres the truth?
Hello, a recent thread about this sparked some new interest about the transmission heat exchanger on the trucks with Auto trans. Who has bypassed or deleted them? I read up a lot on it a while back and ended up bypassing mine when I changed the trans lines to rubber hose. However all the info on them is years old and from other lame forums.
So, thoughts? Delete? Not delete? real function? mixing fluids risk?
Myself, so far I have had zero issues with it removed. Even towing my temps are fine. I do get hot fast in town when towing in town stop and go, but I can control it with lockup and the secondary aux fan cooler I installed. But maybe it was helping the fast rise in 1-2 gears towing in traffic. IDK...
