I was thinking about all this nonsense we have going on with faulty radiators, and bypassed trans coolers and got to wondering:
How would the trans cooler bypass affect the ability of the TC to lock up? As stated in other posts, many doubt that the cooler in the rad actually cools the trans fluid, and in most cases probably heats it up.
Would this action of heating up the trans fluid (or cooling if the fluid is hotter than 180-200) help keep the trans at the right temperature for proper torque converter lockup?
Not being a transmission expert, wondering if anyone out there knows what the criteria are for the Pathy auto trans to reach TC lockup?
