I noticed some tranny fluid on the ground and found on inspection that a rock or something had put a hole in the tranny cooler in the radiator. I have an aux cooler i've been meaning to throw on just havent gottoen around to it. Can the aux cooler run in place of the radiator one? Bypassing the rad all together?

The stock tranny cooler is inside the right side tank of the radiator, if a rock hit that you should be loosing massive amounts of antifreeze. Do you have any pics you post here?

In colder climates it's usually ok to replace the factory tranny cooler with an oversized air cooler "some will disagree with me on this". Most people have it run through the factory cooler 1st then through the aftermarket cooler 2nd.  I live in Northern Illinois and I have my trans only using a aftermarket air cooled trans cooler but it is oversized, I installed it at 40,000 miles and the truck has 209,000 now with no issues.

Yeah antifreeze was almost gone and trans fluid was leaking where the bottom line connects to the radiator. Looks like it cracked the rad and the line.  I have a new radiator and trans line on order. I live in Colorado wher e it can get pretty hot. So I think i'll probably run through the rad and aftermarket cooler. Thanks for the help

I'm running the trans fluid through the radiator and into the auxiliary cooler myself.

me too, I use both,  never had any luck with just an aux cooler.  though at work,  I have seen some '00s and '01s that only run an external cooler from the factory.
