transmission cooler

I have a leak on the front end where the lines meet the radiator. And the leak looks like from the radiator its self. I was thinking of just installing a cooler and running the fluid into the cooler and back to the transmission. Anyone think I can do it or do I need to repair the leak

Like putting in an aftermarket oil cooler and bypassing your stock one?

I had the exact thing happen. Except I thlried to tighten it to fix the leak and it snapped in half. I just went to autozone bought the biggest cooler they had (half as big as my radiator) and fastened rubber hoses to the metal ones that went to my radiator. Make sure u get the right rubber hose though cuz the guy at autozone said trans fluid will slowly eat at some hoses.

No I don't have n e pics. I mounted it to my radiator between my rad and condensor so u can't even see it. I think it was 9" X 16" but I could be wrong. The cooler comes with instruction if u need em.

I wish I could have bought a better on too, but like I said the line snapped and I had to work the next day.
