It may be a Heavy Duty cooling radiator... Will the transmission lines fit the radiator?... If you don't have the Engine Oil Cooler, then you do not need to worry about hooking it up... The Trans cooler is a diffrent story...

The contour of cooling of oil of the engine can be not used? Also there will be all ОК?

As long as the radiator fits into the space properly and the coolant hoses and transmission cooler lines connect properly, extra cooling sections of the radiator designed for cooling the engine oil can be left disconnected with no problems.

I ran into this problem on my Eclipse. I just left them unplugged and used the radiator with no problems.

I currently have a radiator like you describe. My car is not setup to cool oil and I have left the holes open without any worries.

I might suggest maybe filling that section in with oil or something and capping it off to prevent rust from forming within IMO.
