The company who did the fitment said that it is not necessary but I had a bad experience with my Navara. Towing my Explorer to Naxi Pan the gearbox overheated and it was a costly exercise to fix it.

It was fitted by Rex Diff & Gearbox in Boksburg. R1200,00 later for peace of mind- I think it's a good investment.

I'm under the impression that mine has a factory fitted oil cooler - will check.

All auto Y61's have a built-in gearbox oil cooler, which forms part of the radiator.

Question for the clever folks out there...

Would engine oil coolers be suitable as automatic transmission coolers?

I have 2 × aprilia 1000cc motorcycle oil coolers collecting dust on a shelf, they are about 250mm × 150mm ea.

Could they pass as automatic gearbox coolers?
