which way does it flow?

pulled my tranny pan off before I checked the flow of the fluid... does it flow from the bottom to the top of the radiator or the other way around?

dang I'm feeling stupid right now... putting a tranny cooler on and forget to check...

by the way, it's on a chevy 700r4

my guess: it prolly doesnt matter as there prolly isnt a check valve inline anywhere. just my guess though, wait for a real world response.

heh... thanks

actually, the only reason that it does matter is that one line leads from the tranny to the radiator, and the other leads to the radiator from the tranny... so, you want to put your tranny cooler on the line that directly feeds into the tranny so that the coolest fluid gets returned...

I've seen a lot of posts talking about running a totally separate cooler and bypassing the radiator, and kinda figured I'd just put the cooler right up front and get a "double cooling" effect...

I just gotta wait till tomorrow and get the tranny hooked up and test it then... kinda disappointing, but I found out from a couple other sources that there really is no perfect way as to which direction it should flow... all depends on how the lines are hooked up at the tranny

In my opinion and experiences, it doesn't really matter. The only real way to test it would be to check temps with a gauge and run it both ways, then compare the readings. I can't imagine that you would get much variance though.
