I read the sticky about transmission coolers for the 6. I was wondering if the new 5spd ATX would have the same problems?

Probably not. The problem was with the Jatco transmission (only found on the 2003-2004 6s 6cyl). A tranny cooler won't hurt, but on your car might not help much either

Ok, thats what i was wondering. I knew it was mainly for the 6s, but since the thread on the coolers had instructions for the 6i also, i began to get worried.

yeah, i understand that. But are these new 5spd ATXs getting as hot as the 4spd ones were? I have tried searching and cant really find any information on it.

a cooler will always be benificial to an automatic transmission. just to what degree can be debated. as when fluid get excessive heat in it, it breaks down. and the more heat you can extract from it, the longer it will last. i do not think the newer tranny is prone to the issues that our beloved jatco has, but it would be benificial none the less. ;)

It was a night and day diffrence for my 4 speed atx, and a year later the fluid is still a healthy red. For about $50 what do you have to loose?

I don't think there have been any particular reports of problems in regards to heat, just in regards to using the Manual mode all the time.

Quick question Crossbow, What did you mean about a report of problems w/ using Manual mode w/ the new 5spd ATX?


Thanks
