Mine is a manual so I do not have a transmission fluid cooling element. I just replaced my radiator as well, and it was clean between the condenser and radiator.

I try to avoid mechs most are crooks and fail to do accurate repairs on these cars.
I am using Water Wetter, but it hasn't helped my cooling issue (coolant isn't flowing through the system the way it should). I have a whole other thread regarding that whole debacle.

I think I'll remove the condenser, since winter is coming I won't need it, and it's leaking out all the refrigerant anyway.
