I wouldn't install a used trans cooler under ANY circumstances. Any car that has potentially had a trans failure in it'* past life could be a clogged unit.

Coolers are inexpensive. Go NEW only.

Pdad put one in at WCBF '05. PM him and he can give some pointers on the 2k+ cars. It'* a bit more involved than on the 92-99.

I thought the transmissions we have don't have a problem with heat.

Almost every transmission can benefit from a cooler. The engine and radiator on a stock car are regulated between 195 and 228. Transmission is meant to run best around 165 degrees give or take a little. The more it runs in that range versus the possible 228 that is gets from cooling through the radiator the better.
