    Default Additinal Cooling of Auto Gearbox

    On my 2005 (55) plate Vectra CDTi 150, is additional cooling required on the auto gearbox due to the fact that I tow a Caravan with a maximum weight of 1,150kg?




    Cheers in advance

    I don't know if you need one or not, but you could fit a cooler, small rad type jobby to the front of the car in direct airflow, very easy to do and could be thermostatically controlled if need be, I had one on my Supra TT auto, worked a treat! I didn't have mine on a thermostat either, was just to aid cooling on a track day.
    Would imagine you'd need to find out the working temps of the autobox fluid and try and keep within those tolerances.

    simple answer to a simple question:- no, you do not need additional cooling, what have you missed?
