I changed the oil on the Titan today at 2,000 miles and while I was under the hood I thought I would trace the cooling lines for the tranny and the small angled cooler on the front of the radiator/condensor to see where both went. I've heard a lot of speculation on some towing forums that the small cooler on the Titan was for the tranny and it was just too small to effectively cool the transmission. Well, after tracing both I noticed that the small cooling unit is actually for the power steering and the tranny cooling lines actually go to the radiator/condensor. Is this a common method for cooling the transmission? How does this work since the tranny fluid and engine coolant or two different types of fluid (or are they)?

Inside the Radiator is a cooler that is sealed from the engine coolant. They have been using these types of cooler for years.

I guess that's why it has the fan on the front then huh.
