What happens if your transmission lines are backwards?
If you had it reversed, the pump would be trying topush fluid through the bottom of the cooler, up through the cooler, out the top into the bottom of the rad, and up through the rad to the top. More weight to push.
Can you hook up transmission lines backwards?
Re: tranny cooler lines backwards
If the lines go in either the top or the bottom, they can be hooked up any way. If one goes in the top and one in the bottom, make sure the cooler fills from the bottom.
Does it matter which transmission line goes where on radiator?
The top hose from the transmission cooler goes to the top pass through nipple to the transmission and the bottom hose from the transmission cooler goes to the bottom pass through nipple into the bottom of the radiator.
What happens if you bypass a transmission cooler?
If the transmission cooler is part of the radiator, it means it uses the coolant temperature to regulate the temperature of the transmission fluid. If you were to put a separate bypass “air” cooler, you may be inhibiting the quick warm up provided by the coolant on cold starts.
Can you use rubber hose for transmission line?
You can use rubber hose, but make sure it’s transmission cooler line rated. The pressure is quite low (12-15 psi). Double clamp it or use FI type clamps instead of the worm-drive style.
Does a transmission cooler really help?
As long as it is properly installed, a transmission cooler will not affect a factory transmission. It is a flow-through device and does not affect any internal components of the transmission. A transmission cooler will just help to prolong the life of the transmission by keeping the fluid cooler.
Which line is the return line on a C4 transmission?
The rear line is the return line on a C4 transmission like what you have in your 1983 Ford Mustang.
Which line is the return line on a 4l60e transmission?
The 4l60e top port is the return line, the bottom port is the pressure line. The bottom pressure port on the tranny should be hooked to the top port on your radiator. The bottom port on your radiator is the return and should be hooked to the top port on your tranny.
How do transmission cooling lines work?
To overcome this issue, transmissions are designed with cooling lines. These lines pull transmission fluid from the transmission and take it to the radiator, where it cools down. They then circulate it back to the transmission where it keeps doing its job.
Why do transmission lines leak?
What causes a transmission leak? A transmission fluid leak can be caused by a gap in your transmission lines, or a space in the pan gasket, torque converter, fluid lines, the transmission pan, or any of the seals that holds these parts together.
Can you bypass transmission oil cooler?
Yes. The bypass works very well with other coolers, such as the Tru Cool™ 49211 cooler. So if you already have a cooler you like, adding the bypass on is definitely okay.
Can you install 2 transmission coolers?
Because the Atomic-Cool unit had done so well, another one was ordered up, and the plan was to run both concurrently. The crew at Peformance Transmission in Lawndale, California, were ready to take on the install. This is a relatively simple process; a second transmission cooler can be piggybacked on a primary unit.
