Friday maybe, on the People's Court, a transmission mechanic said that
the customer's car had leaked at the engine thermostat, he'd lost a lot
of antifreeze, and the antifreeze cooled the transmisson fluid, so the
transmission overheated and needed 200 dollars worth of parts (he said
he didnt' charge for labor.)
I don't pay much attention to these parts because afaik every water
cooled car on earth with an automatic transmission works the same way.
That is, the engine cooler and transmission cooler are on the same
brackets, but they are totally unrelated to each other. I've never
seen a supplementary oil cooler, like with a trailer package, but I
figure it's even more! true for that.
IOW, the mechanic was lying. Is my impression of the way all cars are
made correct? Was the mechanic lying?
