Re: Trans Cooler for 89 Lebaron Vert 2.5 Turbo

I have a 3 Shadows with the same engine and I put a trans cooler in each of them.
This is a must in order to increase the tranny's life because high oil temperature is the trans killer.
I used Mopar trans cooler but you can use any generic cooler if it can fit in front of the car

Re: Trans Cooler for 89 Lebaron Vert 2.5 Turbo

Do you use just the transmission cooler OR hook it up parallel with the trans cooler in the radiator ?

Re: Trans Cooler for 89 Lebaron Vert 2.5 Turbo

Only the trans cooler which is far bigger than the integrated cooler, which also decreases thermal load on the radiator

Okay, searching for that part number...when I do a fluid and filter change, what else makes sense to do while I have her open.

Thanks in advance,
