Transmission & Steering Cooler for 2002?

1825 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  sinbad
I copied the below text from Honda's Accura MDX site. Will the 2002 Odyssey have both a transmission AND a steering fluid cooler as part of the towing package? A new "factory engineered" trailer hitch (no buying direct form Draw-Tite)? Will any of the '01 parts fit the '02 model? Any comments?

***************************
In support of safe towing, MDX's tow hitch and other hardware needed for the job is factory engineered for dealer installation. A standard automatic transmission cooler built into the radiator is adequate for towing up to 2000 pounds. For heavier loads, the addition of a second external transmission cooler and a separate power-steering fluid cooler is required. The dealer-installed trailer hitch is a Class III receiver-type design that bolts on with no drilling, cutting, or bumper-cover modifications. A harness to provide electrical power to trailer lights plugs into a connector provided at the rear of the vehicle.

Speaking of tranny coolers:

Has anyone installed a generic cooler on their Ody? If so, I'd like to see pictures, especially if it's NOT mounted through the radiator and/or condenser.

Instead of the typical square-ish coolers, I was thinking about using one of those designed to mount along a frame rail but mounting it on brackets similar to the Honda accessory. See number 4109 (http://www.flex-a-lite.com/auto/trans.htm) to see what I'm thinking about using.
