Ok, So I have been reading around online lately. It seems that a lot of people have been getting coolant leaking into the transmission and basically having to replace the whole tranny. I still have been fortunate enough to not have this problem occur yet. However, it seems like up until this point I have had every possible problem and rattle that everybody has been talking about, so I've been fearing this coming now. I really don't want to shell out over 5 grand for a new transmission.
I have a few questions to the 05 owners... First, how many people actually have had this problem and at what mileage did it occur? I have heard there is ways of preventing this from happening. The people that had this problem, this sounds like a defective radiator. Would replacing the radiator with a different one prevent this leak from happening?
I have also heard the other option was getting an external cooler to bypass the radiator completely, however this option seems like there would be a lot of extra mod work involved.
Any info on this problem would be greatly appreciated...thanks.
