    I want to add a cooler to my 08 4 cylinder, can anyone tell me which one of the lines is the "hot" or "cooled" so I can know where to put my cooler.

    PS any suggestion as to whether I should put it "before" of "after" the fluid passes through the rad?

    Thanks,
    Gerry

    The whole reason the trans oil passes through the radiator is because the radiator is cooling the oil. Its called a water cooled oil cooler. If you really want to add another oil cooler I guess you would just add an air cooled oil cooler after the oil exits the radiator.
