    IIRC all the auto's have a line running through the radiator to cool the tranny fluid...not a tranny cooler; that would be an extra little radiator, not piggy backing off the existing radiator.

    The difference is in the water pump. Take a look at your water pump. Does it have the extra outlet?

    According to Rock Auto's menu system, if your shifter is on the floor, order "with oil cooler", also known as "Outlet Tube At Thermostat" or "Bypass Tube".

And foud the service manual and I do have an oil cooler, what was throwin me off was the mini radiator in front of my existing radiator, thanks for the help u guys, and if u look uner your engine parallel to the oil filter their is a cylinder type thing with hoses comin out that is the oil cooler

    Cool. Looks like the 1st Gen. oil cooler is similar to those on 2nd Gens. with tow package.
