It's getting to be that time of year when I usually reroute my transmission
cooling lines from the external cooler back into the radiator. Anybody out
there have any experience with the thermostats that block trans fluid/oil
below X temperature from going into the cooler/radiator? Is a by-pass
needed to complete the pump cycle for blocked flow? Thanks,

George Miller

AFAIK the tranny lines cannot be blocked at all. if a thermostat would be used, there must be a bypass of some type.

why would you reroute them? AFAIK, the tranny can not be too cool, unlike engine oil. unless of course you live in the arctic...

Thanks sleddog. You're correct; I don't need it. A holdover cooling system
fall maintenance item from living in the woods with -40 degree winter temps
that isn't required in the desert.

The web page for the t-shirt contest will be delayed until
later this week. I had some medical problems and was on
bedrest under doctors orders until this evening.
