I have just purchased a 2002 4.5 lit Petrol Landcruiser GXL auto, & a 16 ft Jayco offroad pop top ( approx 2000kg - loaded ) to do a complete tour of Australia.

Do I need to have a transmission oil cooler fitted.

Regards

Tac,

I think if you check you already have a transmission oil cooler

Have a good one

Old Johno is correct. There is a large oil cooler in front of the radiator LHS. On mine, not satisfied, I fitted a temperature sensor in the auto sump and a guage on the dash. Towing a 2.2 tonne 6m full size van, the temp guage shows almost no movement. Just on one occasion on the Moomby range north of Tamworth, on a 42degree day, the temp climed to 100 degrees going north up the range and then cooled rapidly on the downhill run. Also, if you read the owners' manual, you will note that there is a warning light on dash for high trans oil temp. I think it lights up at about 120degrees. My advice is that another oil cooler is a waste of money.

Oops...sorry, my info was not quite correct. The trans fluid temp warning light is activated when the fluid reaches 150 degrees and goes out when the temp drops to 120 degrees. And the owners manual doesn't mention these temps so I must have contacted Toyata to get them.
