Send it back and get the right one. You will need the fan shroud to fit the stock style radiator to have better cooling and good air flow across the condenser for optimal a/c performance.

SOURCE: I noticed a leak in the seam of my radiator. While

Look on both sides of the radiator left hand and right hand for thin metal lines that go into it some do integrate oil cooler lines as well as trans mission cooler lines and some only integrate one set of lines. If the lines are on the drivers side if it has any those would be the oil cooler lines the ones on the passengers side are transmission lines both will run through the radiator to cool the trans fluid and oil fluid. And yes you can develope an internal leak and get oil or trans fluid in your radiator if thats the case you will need to replace the radiator.

My 2008 Chevy express van 25004.8L has a p code on the tranny that is saying tranny oil running hot and an O2 sensor but tranny place says I need rebuild to fix issue huh wtf?


just add a tranny cooler,if your tranny gives you problems like not shifting etc,then it needs a rebuild,,,,the tranny fluid running hot is normal and can be fixed with a tranny cooler kit, Derale Series 8000 Plate Fin Transmission Cooler Kit Barb Inlets Class III... ,its a van,it is going to get hot,get a kit and hook it up,and see the difference,replace all o2 sensors while you are at it,they are cheap and if 1 goes then the others will go,and then you only have to be under it one time,not a couple times,here is info i found;
Transmission coolers are not vehicle specific, but there are ones that are recommended for certain engine sizes. What I did was look up the recommended coolers for the 4.8 liter engine for the 2008 Silverado to get an idea of what we recommend for that engine size.

The most popular cooler for the 4.8 is the Derale Transmission Cooler, # D13502, and GM fitting, # D13035. The cooler is listed for a load of up to 3,500 pounds. Before deciding on a cooler though it will be a good idea to look at the dimensions, listed on the product page below the description, to determine the best place to mount the cooler in the engine compartment.

I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation and a link to our FAQ article on transmission coolers for you to view.

Engine oil coolers would also be beneficial to extend the life of oil lubricated parts. The kits work well and from the information that I have received from Derale in the past, any restricted flow is so minute that it may not even be able to be detected.

I recommend the Derale Tube-Fin Engine Oil Cooler Kit, # D15501. The adapter has a 2-3/4 inch o-ring diameter which is used on the vast majority of GM applications. It also has multiple threads to ensure proper thread size. Again, you will want to check the dimensions of the cooler and compare that to the space under the hood of your 2008 Chevy Express Van ahead of time.

Both the transmission cooler and oil cooler come with all the necessary hardware and parts for installation. Current pricing information is available on each of the product pages.

Will a auto transmission cooler from a ED falcon fit an EF falcon


If it is in the radiator it should as the fittings are the only problem you are likely to encounter. If you are wondering if the cooling capability is affected consider this . Hot tranny oil has to be cooled in the radiator water and this heat makes the radiaror work hard.Why don"t you consider a external cooler. They keep the oil cooler as they are are running in the outside air. Ie air temp 30 deg C oil temp 150c+ water temp 85degC oil temp 150c. You can see that the tranny oil looses more heat and it will not overload the radiator capability

4L60E for 1997 1500 chevy 4x4 worked fine now nothing


Athough the trannys look the same ,there not.Years 95,96,97 and 98 ,the trannys need to be from the exact year in orded to work correctly.If yours is a 1997 4l60e you will need one from a 97.The 10th digit in your vin determines the year and yours should be a -v-.Be sure when installing a new tranny you flush the trans. cooler lines and radiator cooler for the trans. to prevent any metal from your old trans. going in to your new one.Hope this helps.

2003 Neon SXT Tranny Oil In Radiator


I'm not possitive but there is usually a vent tube on top of the transmission, may be possible that dirt or something is clogging it up. That would cause the tranny to build up pressure. But to blow the seal on a new radiator, I wouldn't imagine that. My opinion would be that the new radiator wasn't put together correctly. But just in case the vent tube did cause it to let go, check the vent. I hope that you find the problem. Best wishes.
