Talking tranny cooler

Have read in other post that rodding the tranny cooler is not a good idea.

I have already given mine to the radiator shop and they are rodding it. If the above is true, is there any thing I can do??

It looks to be 80 to 90% blocked up.

Suggestions as to a correction to the problem?

Are new ones available??

What choice do you have? If it can't be rodded it will need to be rebuilt or replaced I would think

even though i'm having it rodded, I plan on replacing it....

I cannot trust a rodded tranny cooler from what I have read on WOG. Therefore the conclusion is simple. REPLACE IT.

Thanks for the input!!!

Jeff - after hearing the price of a new cooler (over $1000!) I decided to have the radiator shop flush mine out. There are threads on the forum about the cooler and possible replacements. Here is one such thread, read all the way thru it and you will see some info on replacements:
