Transmission cooler

Postby audioman » Sat Mar 13, 2010 3:21 pm

This has probably been covered before, but I just got this 05 Pathfinder and have seen issues with the cooler leaking in the radiator. I see the trans cooler goes from the radiator to the extra cooler in front of the radiator. Has anyone
bypassed the radiator cooler and just used the cooler in the front, or added another one?

Also has anyone had luck with a shift kit. They shift so soft and sloppy.

Probably won't find anyone on this board, including me, who agrees with that statement. :?

Shift quality

No problem. I like a crisp shift. All the Pathfinders I have driven are a bit
to soft and have to much overlap for my taste. But if you like the way it shifts that is great.

I have found a shift kit for these if anyone is interested.
