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:confused:

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.

Merci... But I will tow a (23 ft. 4000lbs w load) trailer one or two times / weeks in the summer....

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

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.....:eek: and I make +/- 50 000Km/Y...
So no Hemi for me!:rolleyes:

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.
