Default Smoother Shifting Trans

I noticed since I rigged my cooling fans to be on all the time that my trans seems to shift slightly smoother. I dont have an add on cooler, just stock through the radiator. Anyone else had this happen??

Stands to reason. If you cool the engine, you'll cool the trans to some extent. Now imagine the lifetime you could by in your trans if you added a tranny cooler? The 94 SSE and SSEi got them from the factory. Only the SE didn't in that year.

The SE will only get a trans cooler if it'* ordered by the buyer. I haven't seen one yet. The SSE, SLE, and SSEi got trans coolers up to 96 I think. Not sure, but I can look it up at home. You'll know if you have one. Sits in front of the radiator on the passenger side.

You have my personal gaurantee

Look on the front passenger side of the radiator. You'll see it there. About 10x18", mounted vertically.
