That makes a lot of sense if he indeed does have the automatic transmission.

Is the transmission cooler not located within the radiator? I would think that he would have to replace the radiator if it is as I don't think that it is a separate item that can be removed.

I would also suggest that he have his transmission thoroughly flushed if it is indeed coolant in the tranny fluid as this would have circulated throughout his transmission.

I agree as well (go figure ) with performing a compression check.

Roberto, I think your engineer friend may have hit the nail on the head. It sure makes sense.

Good luck Dawntrader and let us know how it goes.
