WK2 Transmission cooling questions?

Are the V6 and the V8 use the same transmission radiateur cooler? If not should I get a big one on my V6 or a second one? Tks

I would check your transmission temp in the EVIC on a hot summer day after being in a lot of stop and go traffic. Regardless of if it's the same as the one in the V8 or not, if it's running cool that's all that matters.

Why didnt you buy a V8 if you knew you were going to be towing that much and that often?

Re: WK2 Transmission cooling questions?

I haven't seen a red line on my EVIC and I haven't seen the acceptable temperatures in my manual so how do I know what is too hot?

TKS for the reply...

First, I had a Turbo diesel 2008 GC 3.0L ( Sold after 36/month and 151 000KM) w 215 bhp and +/- 390 lbs/torque.... Since, I can't order one anymore... I look at the V6, It could be good at +/- 300 bhp and +/- 280 lbs/torque....

Second, Price of gaz in Quebec is REG (87): 1,30$/liter and Super (91) 1,50$/liter +
we have to pay 1500,00$ option on the Hemi + 1000,00$ green taxe on +4 liters engine.... + 100,00$ more on the plate/years on top of that.....and the Hemi run on Super..... and I make +/- 50 000Km/Y...
So no Hemi for me!

Re: WK2 Transmission cooling questions?

unless you have a towing package I doubt you have a trans cooler. On the V8's its the top few rows of the radiator. You could hook up an aux cooler though, if towing I would suggest it.
