Re: Used Transmission Coolers?
I don't recommend it because you haven't a clue about the cooler. Now if I were to get an F350 and decide to transplant my cooler, sure. I know the history. If you get it from me, all you have is my good word. Was it hit and say the plastic part cracked? What was the reason that trans cooler is for sale? Because Ford made the dealership install a new one as opposed to flushing it and now he has a "slightly used" cooler for sale?
Sure, you can flush and backflush it but the question is whether you are willing to take the risk on your trans or not. How much risk to your expensive trans are you willing to take? Are you sure there are no structural issues? You sure you got everything out of it that is there and there isn't a goober waiting to bite you afterwards? Too many uncertainties which is why I would buy a new one.
I'm cheap myself that is why I like to do it once and do it right. Because almost everytime I took the cheap way, it came back to bite me. A prime example is I skimped on my heads and saved a few hundred bucks. Big Time win. A couple years later, my (96 priced $5000) short block had a piston kiss a valve. So, what did I profit from that?
