    make sure you get a radiator for auto. theres transmission fluid lines that run to the radiatior as well. sort of like a rad. inside a rad. it just cools the fluid.

    Yah I noticed those hoses, would I need to flush my trans or top it off when I change the radiator?

    another thing to see is if you have the tow package, as the radiator is angled like 2 degrees different. dont know if this makes a difference though to the radiator itself.

    flush no, but refill yes. any lines you open you would have to reflow the system with fresh fluid. its a great opportunity though to change fluids.
