    2.  

    To install:


    CAUTION
    Prior to the installation of the transmission, the fluid, cooler lines and the cooler bypass valve must be cleaned. Transmission failure can occur if this procedure is not followed.  


    CAUTION
    A new transmission oil-to-air (OTA) cooler must be installed if the transmission was overhauled or exchanged due to a failure of the transmission. Transmission failure can occur if this procedure is not followed.
