    I think that is why Acura transmissions were failing around that era but I think you would have to have go to a transmission shop and see if they had any ideas.

    called a few transmission shops they said bring it in and they should be able to help. in other words they have never seen one and never added a cooler. i will not be the first customer. i think they gave me some used grass from a bull.

    hello ray, only thing i have found so far is a addative that takes the surface tension away from coolant/water. says engines will run cooler by water/coolant coming in contact with metal and dissipating heat. check napa,o'rileys and parts store.
