Re: Transmission Cooler
Posted by Stevo78 - Moved from another thread
First off i would like to say how great this site is, without it i dont think i would of just purchased our xtrail, she is an 06 STS Extreme with 47,000Ks.
My question is reguarding automatic transmission coolers, i have spoken to some auto specialists some say fit it, other say dont need it, one of them said he wont do it because some transmissions require the oil to be hot to change gears and having a cooler and not towing will cause problems.
Then i rang nissan serviced and asked, i will be towing a boat 1200-1400kg
They said if its under 1500kg its not required, now i dont know who to beleive as the service guy also said my gearbox wont handle anything over 1500kg towing, when it rated for 2000kg?
So now im confused and i dont know which way to go. How many of you tow regularly without a cooler?
Most of my trips will be within 30km from home to the ramp with the occasional long trip.
