  • 2019 Prado Transmission Cooler Lines

    Hi,

    I'm about to install a trans cooler in my 2019 prado. On the radiator, is the top or bottom connection the fluid return to the gearbox? I want to make sure I get the connections the right way around so the external cooler is plumbed after the radiator cooler.

    On my 1KD 120 prado, the top hose was the return, just want to confirm the arrangement on the new model.

    Thanks,

    I have a 1GD Prado with the 6-speed auto too. I also tow and plan to install an ATF cooler.

    I don't know the answer to your question but the way I'd work it out would be to start the engine from cold and feel which pipe to/from the transmission gets hot first. (Lucky we have two hands hey?)

      I found the diagram. The outlet from the radiator cooler is the top connection on the radiator.

        Kaon have a video for a transmission cooler installation for a 150 but the motor is not the same as my 1GD motor.

          Yeah I watched that however the instructions that came with the kit suggest connecting to the bottom radiator connection hence my confusion.

            Someone people believe putting the transmission cooler in line before the engine radiator is better, maybe that is why your instructions are written as connecting to the bottom radiator connection.

              The fluid level check temperature is 35-45 degrees on the AC60 transmission.

              The 5 speed in the previous model was checked at 45-55 degrees.
