1997 D90 Transmission Oil Cooler

Checked with the big us-based suppliers and both said they had it on backorder for many months now. Wondering if anyone has another source for this - UK based maybe? - or if anyone has found a suitable non-verbal replacement

If you are just looking for the oil cooler lines then go with trailhead4x4.

Not the lines. The cooler itself

The coolers FTC5360 are out of stock everywhere (UK included). We have a bunch on back order.

Best thing to do is have yours repaired. A quality radiator shop that can weld aluminum can do it.

Bought mine from RN, just in time so it seems...(late last year). Repair is the way to go if you have the time! good luck.

The real problem with the '97 trany cooler is it's location.
Though it works while going down the highway at highway speeds, when it really needs to perform it's job, it can't because of the factory location.
That location is not conducive to slow or low speeds because it sits below where the engine fan can pull air through it.

A better solution would be to mount an after market unit in front of the AC condenser.

Also throwing a winch and other off road components and bumpers on doesn't help...
