My 97 2.3L Ranger developed a hole in the trans cooler into the radiator. Pretty sure I bought this
exact radiator off that exact seller off eBay. Swapped it in and everything was golden. Been about 8 months I guess and I noticed my trans would sometimes take a few seconds to actually enter into gear. I check the trans fluid while at operating temp and on level ground. Nothing even on the stick. Now, I watch my driveway like a hawk and I park in the exact same parking spot every day at work. There's no leak. Well, only other place it could be.....yep.... trans fluid in the radiator again. WTF!
