I'm thinking of adding a transmission oil cooler to my '03 3.4 stock Impala, 159KM,
to help with the hard shifting when hot issue. Plan B is a shift kit, plan C is to replace the pressure control solenoid, maybe the others also.
I searched for posts which had pictures and info. on adding a cooler to our impalas, but couldn't find any. I thought there were some before.
Also, what is the best way to plumb in an aux. cooler, in series before the radiator cooler, in series after the radiator cooler, or independent of the radiator cooler?
Just changed the transmission oil and filter for the second time.
your trans may be slipping, causing what they call a "Maximum adapt shift", so that the transmission properly shifts. Not to alarm you or anything, but your shifting when hot happened to me. I did not do the shift kit, because when I dropped the trans pan, I had more metal than should have been in the pan.
