I will try to get some pics tonight when I lift my car up. Therefore we present the picture gallery below. You currently have 0 posts. Need More Info : This site has some great 700R4 help and information along with areas for information on other transmissions. I'm installing a Hayden 679 myself and need to verify which is the return line takes cooled fluid from the cooler back to the trans. Or if you have done this and have a part of the fitting you used. It is not recommended to mount the cooler with the fittings pointing down as this may create an air pocket in the cooler resulting in reduced cooling efficiency.
When the temperature sender is inserted into the fluid flow, the driver receives immediate feedback of realtime changes in trans temp, which can forewarn of developing transmission trouble. On the hose, it should work and i'd use 6. I went back and corrected the errors. However, care must be taken so as not to install the sender such that it impedes fluid flow.

It is not recommended to mount the cooler with the fittings pointing down as this may create an air pocket in the cooler resulting in reduced cooling efficiency. Is the return line the one at the top of the radiator or the bottom of the radiator? If the hard lines are still there using those into the top of the cooler is fine. According to , automatic transmission life doubles for every 20° F drop in transmission fluid temperature. These lines are easy to route and long enough for most applications. This is gonna make be dig a core out and check the fitting's.
Thanks for catching it and letting me know. Thanks to you and Pete for the info on the sensor mounting. I mean, I'll cut 'em, re-flare them, the whole dang dance but if somebody has some suggestions as to what they did to make their hard lines work, I'd greatly appreciate it. You've hit one of my pet peeves. The pipe that's giving me the most trouble is the one that goes from the top of radiator tank to the bottom fitting on the trans gotta love how the 2004r is different than the other transmissions in that regard. Just like the title says I could use either some pics or a detailed description on where the stock transmission lines run, from the transmission up to the radiator. This image is the best image we collect from the best sources, the image below is the property of their official website, not ours, so if you want the image removed, please contact the website in the image link.
Thanks Proper hose routing is from the transmission - past the temperature gauge sender - into the radiator wet cooler - then onto the supplemental dry cooler and back to the transmission. I changed the fluid and filter then used the typical drain plug kit. Just rubber parts under the hood melted and one fender was damaged. We got the fire out before any major damage was done. Redundant senders aren't really necessary, but satisfy curiosity.
My next question is should I bother getting an inline trans temp gauge or just wait and put one in the pan after my camping trip?? After two days of wrestling with the hard lines made for a T-400 in the +90 degree garage, I am giving up and getting the Bowtie Overdrives Lines Made E-Z. I don't have my fsm with me. The question you're asking is the wrong one. These lines are designed for use with stock transmission coolers. Need to tap into the return line so the fluid goes from the factory radiator cooler to the aftermarket cooler.
I do not want to just clamp the rubber hose on the flared hard line, I really want to do it right and get a flared threaded to hose barb fitting. I connected the the 2 pieces with brass compression unions - were I to do it over I'd use flare unions. I watched my buddies Rustang burn, his trans puked up some fluid on the exhaust. The gauge can then be flipped back-and-forth between the two senders using a toggle. I tend to prefer steel-braid-over-Teflon Aeroquip 2807 rather than steel-braid-over-rubber.
From the sound of it, i want to avoid the hose, but im not sure i like a completely rigid line either. Matthew Not long after I got the car I installed one in the pan. Be sure you enter a valid email address and check your spam folder as well. When it is screwed into the radiator, it wants to hang even with the bottom of my header when the end is in line with the fitting on trans! Note: On a 200R4 the top fitting is the out line to the cooler and the bottom fittings is for the return line from the cooler. So if anyone know the correct thread please let me know.
The gauge sender should be immersed in the fluid flow between the transmission and wet cooler inlet rather than in the transmission case or pan. Im well aware of what material it is constructed from, I just wondered if you could use it for that purpose. Bottom trans fitting is output flow to the bottom of the radiator cooler, top of radiator cooler to the bottom of the aux cooler. These Advance Adapters flexible transmission cooler lines can make that easier. I custom bend all our lines on our projects, see photobucket for pictures. You currently have 0 posts.
Hot fluid travels from the transmission to the in-radiator factory cooler through the upper line top of rad. The sender is the same size as the plug so that was easy. Matthew Yes stock is routed that way. They come pre-built with fittings, make a great seal to the hose, and are deigned to work with some of the most popular transmissions being swapped into vehicles today. I have mine set up so the line from the bottom fitting goes to the top of the radiator cooler. While I was replacing the half-assed brake lines in my truck I discovered that one of the previous owners hacked off the stock transmission lines and ran their own. So anyways enough of my ranting, if anyone could post up pics of how the transmission lines run or give me a detailed description I would be forever grateful to you.
