Did Auto 85 GL Wagons Come With Them Or is This After Market, OR Is It Even A Tranny Cooler? I Followed The Hose But Couldn't See Where They Led.... :confused:

Defintely not stock. I don't think any subarus have come with auxillary tranny coolers (except the crappy ones in the radiators) or auxillary oil coolers.

It could be either tranny or oil cooler. Follow the lines. If its an oil cooler, it'd end up at the fuel filter. If they travel to up where the stock lines are, its a tranny cooler. BTW, stock radiators for automatics have coolers in the radiator. Check the driver's side of the radiator's end tank. There should be hoses there for the tranny.

My Radiator has no hook ups for Trans Cooler And I Followed It Back And I Found Out It Was A Trans Cooler So Is This The Wrong Radiator For My Car?

Oh Well? I Guess It's Better To Have A Newer Radiator And An After Market Trans Cooler :D

"wrong" radiator if you didn't have an aftermarket tranny cooler. Since you do, that one will do you just fine!

I Wish Mine Would Read That Low Mine Is Usually Always At 3/4 When Warmed Up On A Hot Day. And I Dont Even Have AC :eek: But Never Hits Close To Red So It Works.

3/4 on the gauge is too hot. Flush the cooling system, replace the thermostat and radiator cap. If it still over heats, a change of radiator may be in store.
