I had an external oil cooler for the auto magna and I have just brought a au2 falcon. I tow an average van and would like to transfer the oil cooler to the falcon. I have been told the au does not need one as it is built in. If it is possible I would like to fit an external cooler. Has anyone been down this path before???

Denis, I had one on a much earlier model falcon and was told its built in also, is it. Built into the bottom of the radiator that is, an external one would help a lot I reckon, my problem was cooling the motor and the trans oil cooler helped heaps as I bypassed the radiator completely letting it do its water job better.

Lots of talk about towing with Falcons and keeping their transmisions cool, I would'nt even tow a 6x4 with my EL without a cooler.

The cooler mounted in the radiator is very very small and is far less efficient than a large, qualtiy cooler mounted in front of the radiator. I wouldnt tow anything without an external coolder fitted.

even the auto hj station wagon I bought for $200 had a heat xchanger running through the bottom of the radiator however to call it a built in trans cooler is optamistic as it is for std use only and for towing the xternal 1s are the go
