Just bought first gen4 Sable, '05 24v wagon. Duratec motor new to me, so is gen 3 and 4. Where is the transmission cooler? Better yet, how does the transmission keep cool? I only see the lines go into the radiator and back into transmission. Is that good enough? On the older ones had a line that went to the front of car and back, also going into radiator, and even then the transmissions had cooling problems, had to install aftermarket cooler.

The only "cooler" is the tank in the radiator. I always put on aftermarket fluid to air tranny coolers in front of the radiator on all my auto tranny cars.

doesn't seem adequate. But every gen4 like that, so assuming it must be because gen4 doesn't have as many transmission problems as the older ones from back in the day.
