6 liter cooler in a 2000 7.3

Is this a easy change? There is a good one in a junk yard near me and if I can get it for a good price I might change this while I am changing the tranny fluid.

Not sure how easy but it will be well worth it.

It aint too difficult. Just bolts in for the most part. The only advice I can give you is, when you install it, do not run the lines into the radiator. Just run them straight into the tranny cooler then to the tranny. Also, install your lines on to the tranny cooler before you drop it in!!

I disagree. The best way to do it is keep the cooler in the radiator and the 6.0L cooler. The radiator cooler is a very effective cooler, there is no reason to bypass it.

Mark, how would you plumb it, radiator then 6.0 cooler, or 6.0 cooler then radiator?

Re: 6 liter cooler in a 2000 7.3

I wouldn't get a junkyard one. No telling why it was there or what the life it led was. Was the trans destroyed and particles went thru the cooler?

If you are replacing it, there should be no issue. If yo are installing a new one, I would think that there is one line going to the radiator and one coming back to the trans. Take the one going back to the trans and hook it into the new cooler and take the other end and hook it to the line going to the trans

Re: 6 liter cooler in a 2000 7.3

So, is the cooler located in front of the radiator and innercooler? I just looked under my hood for about 2 seconds and didnt see anything resembling a tranny cooler. Or is it inside the radiator?

It is between the radiator and the intercooler, IIRC

The correct way is from the front of the trans to the radiator, then to the 6.0L cooler, then to the rear of the trans.

That is the way John Woods recommened when I was doing the 6.0 cooler.
