    The automatic transmissions were the only ones with oil coolers.

    The oil cooler is on the driver's side of the lower engine block towards the rear from the oil filter. Most USDM engines have them. The oil cooler is a round "can" with a two coolant hoses attached to it. Unfortunately it has little correlation with whether or not you have an automatic or standard transmission. It's for cooling the engine oil.

    If you haven't ordered any parts, this will save you money:

    A lot of guys on here including me have purchased this kit with great results.

    This may save you a lot of time:

    I’ve done this timing belt job before (but with the engine out of the vehicle) and I just watched this 2hr video... for fun... I have issues. Timmy always puts out great vids.

    I got my parts from him too. He has a few bundles too. I decided to order more parts not included from Toyota Dallas. I think a tensioner and a few others.

    Just go to timingbeltkit.com and send them an email with your VIN. They can tell you exactly what kit you need and they ship for free.

    That's actually a good deal as long as all the parts are what they say they are! There is a disclaimer in there saying "Country of origin of individual parts may vary" - not exactly what I want to hear though lol.

    We've bought several kits through them and they are always top quality Japanese parts. Don't know what the 'Country of Origin' thing is about.
