    Default Auto Gearbox - Can you prevent Water Contamination?

    Hi

    Can you prevent water contamination getting into the Auto gearbox? Can you change the seals before they perish?

    I see a previous post mentions they re-designed the radiator so water contamination is not possible is this correct and if so from what year did this take place?

    Thanks

    I agree! An aftermarket cooler gives you 100% peace of mind, and much more efficient cooling of the ATF, which should make the box last the lifetime of the car (as long as you change the fluid every 3 years or so)
