    i pulled the radiator off this morning to go get it patched. there was to metal lines going into it. i pulled them and it looked like tranny fluid. does this paticular radiator have a built in tranny cooler? its a 19in..if it does have one built in, is it a stock rad. or after market?

    Yes all factory auto tranny equipped vehicles will have the tranny lines hooked into the radiator for cooling, unless there is an external cooler.

    So, yes, your rad is normal!

    thanks guys. i know nothing about radiators, but learn something new every day. so is this stock tranny cooler as good as a outside (sits in front of the radiator) tranny cooler, or would the out side be better?

    I have the ouside one as well. tranny-oil go there first and then through the radiator. I think all autotranny's originaly have one oilcooler in the radiator.
    It is considered best to have one on the outside aswell..

    What's the spec on the rad? I put in a triple-core several years ago. The temp gauge hasn't moved past the first tic-mark. This puppy runs cooool!
