Before you do this check, and buy if needed, the trans oil cooler hard lines that run along the radiator support.

I live where they salt heavily in the winter and mine are quite rusted and on the verge of splitting.

Rockauto has them for around $30

3/8" inside diameter. Lowe's has this in clear tubing for cheap, really helps watch the discharge so you can tell quickly when the old fluid is gone and clean fluid is pumping out.

I second this, mine were so rusty they just started leaking this week. I went with the Dorman, didnt think Rockauto would have them. Oh well!

Finally got around to this, Iíve had the WS in the garage for a week or two. Super easy.

This is what came out the first 3 quart run.... not terrible surprisingly at 145k

Then the second 3 quart run

Then the first two quart run, looking much better

And the second 2 quart run. At this point I figured the last 2 quarts to make 12 were unnecessary, but I was in it so I figured why not.

The last bit came out looking like what I was putting in, which is awesome.

Only recommendation is make sure you get the right size fitting for the hose connection. I got a 1/4 inch inner diameter brass fitting and it worked, but barely. I couldnít find a fitting that was 3/8 outer diameter at Home Depot, they must have been out. I got a few drips at the connection but nothing a towel didnít soak up.

Canít stress how easy this was, took less than 2 hours total. Thanks OP!

Iím planning on doing this one of these weekends this fall.

I think I know the answer to this, but want to see what others think.

I added an auxiliary trans cooler to mine. So the tubing currently goes:
-Trans to top inlet on radiator
-Bottom outlet of radiator to one side of the trans cooler
- other side of the trans cooler back to the return line that normally would be hooked up to the bottom outlet on the radiator.

So, what Iím thinking is that I will have to disconnect in two spots; the top inlet of the radiator for the old fluid, and then the tube that used to be on the bottom outlet of the radiator. This way Iíll basically be bypassing the internal trans cooler thatís in the radiator and my aux trans cooler.

The reason I think Iíll have to do this, is in the way the OP did it, youíre relying on gravity to refill the trans on the return line.
On my setup, that return line will be leading to the aux trans cooler, which is a decent amount more tubing and mounted in the middle of the radiator, so gravity will be working against me to get that new fluid into the aux trans cooler and through, and back to the actual trans. Iím thinking the best bet will be to just bypass the radiator and trans cooler altogether and disconnect in two spots.

Am I overthinking this, or what do others think?

This makes perfect sense to me, no reason this shouldnít work.
