You're an idiotI have eliminated the stock in radiator cooler because of exactly what had happened to you . Now you have trans fluid all through your coolant passages . After you get it rebuilt install the biggest cooler you can find and bypass the stock radiator trans cooler and run straight to the aftermarket Trans cooler . I also eliminated the stock oil cooler aswell and so have many ppl that I know and not a single one has had issues with oil temps being to high in fact it helped the coolant system out because it doesn’t have to deal with the trans and oil anymore.
Yea well both those guys must be idiots aswell lol jk . Yea I have spoken with Lonnie about it and was told to just use the biggest cooler and it would be fine which it has beendank GN i agree with you i have been using aftermarket cooler for years and i do mean years with NO issues, from stock, built 200r from Extreme Auto, turbo 400's and zero issues. I was told by Art Carr back in the late 80's and early 90's to do so.when Duttweiler was building my engines and the trans was always the weak point.
Here's the deal dude,you can believe me or not I'm actually trying to help you out its coolant or water and coolant mix but let me just say this Air does not contain any color so why would your fluid turn pink take some transmission fluid that you have in your garage or go down and buy some and add some water or coolant to it see what happens if your transmission is smoked the fluid will turn black not pink I actually do hope this help you regardless of all the other BS that's going on in this thread by the way no matter what the transmission is smoked once you get water or coolant in it it's done as is the converternew advance auto v8 rad ,heads are off waiting on a cam ,no trans oil in the coolant its an 84 gn so no oil cooler, it was supposed to have been rebuilt so i dont even know if its a gn trans, i think it looks like air but im in northern indiana so its sat for the last 5 months shouldnt the air have came out by now
