Question From greenframmer on 2006 nissian pathfinder

What can I do to prevent the transmission fluid from mixing with the radiator fluid.

Response From Discretesignals

I understand your concern. You don't want your transmission destroyed and Pathfinders had problems with that. Two options. Replace the radiator or install an external transmission cooler.

Response From nickwarner

Of those two options I recommend the radiator change. For one thing, heat transfer is many times higher with liquid than air. Thats why you succumb to hypothermia in water much faster than air of the same temp. Also, the heat exchanger being in the radiator aids in getting your fluids up to the right temp when cold. The engine warming up warms the fluid in the trans. This is why even vehicles that come factory with auxiliary air to air coolers still route through the heat exchanger in the radiator first.

Response From Hammer Time

What's wrong with doing both and get twice the cooling?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Yes - ones seen (havent' added one for myself) use extra up front of all AND use radiator as well. As said it's both cooler and a warmer keeping fluid to a dull roar without the extremes that kill transmissions.


Cold weather packaged vehicles would put radiator so called coolers on the incoming hot tank of a radiator not the cooler side as super cold isn't good either for oil flow in general,

Response From Discretesignals

That's interesting because I did an AC job on a 2005 Chrysler 300. Guess where they put the transmission cooler?


Response From Hammer Time

Yes, I've done a few of those DS.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Hmmm? And FIAT owns them now - any questions?


T

Response From Tom Greenleaf

I'll second that - go for the new radiator - best you can find.


The name "trans cooler" can be misleading but is the only word we use. I'd rather call it what Nick just mentioned it really moderates the temp of trans fluid not just make it as cold as it can get which you don't want,

Fiat Punto 1.2 R reg 1997, Help

Question From David McCarnoob on Fiat Punto 1.2 R reg 1997, Help

Hello, a few months ago, like the moron I am, I ran my car out of oil. since then its needed more water and im sure its going through a bit more oil, in the last few days its gotten worse, not holding water but no leak, the temp goes sky high and the heaters blow cold air, the thermostat has been changed, worked for 10 mins then stopped, its a fiat punto r reg 1997, should i replace gaskets ie rocket, head or could it be something worse?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

I strongly suggest a full diagnosis before spending too much on an engine that you know was run out of oil. Get that done before you decide on what to do as gaskets alone may not solve all the problems,

Question From Guest on fiat punto mk1 rev counter

hi i have a 1.2i r reg mk1 fiat punto and it doesnt have a rev counter and i was wondering if i am able to install one into the car as i would like to have one in there and am i able to take the clock out as i dont need it if not i will install it out of the dash

Response From Loren Champlain Sr Top Rated Answer

rev counter? Must be an 'English' term for tachometer? LOL. Most parts stores sell 'add on' tachometers. Sun is a very good brand. Will come with installation instructions. I've got one I'd give you, but sounds like we may be a few miles apart.

Heating Issues Fiat Punto 2002

Question From Troy.smith on Heating Issues Fiat Punto 2002

Hello.

I have a problem with my heating system on my Fiat punto Elx.

Yesterday evening I accidently left my interior light on in my car for about an hour and a half. When i returned to my car I found that my heating system would not work, No cold air nor hot air would come through the vents. Also when i turned my lights on i noticed that backlights on the symbols on the heating controls no longer worked.

Could this be a fuse problem?

I'm not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to cars, so excuse me for my non technical terms.

Thank you in advance.

Troy.

Response From Jeff Norfolk

First thing to do is check all the fuses.

Response From Troy.smith

Hi Jeff

Checked all fuses they are all fine. Battery is measuring 12v so that seems ok. Other forum responses think it might be the heater fan resistor?

Thanks

Troy

Response From Jeff Norfolk Top Rated Answer

Don't see many Fiats in my neck of the woods but a resistor is possible. I don't have any wiring diagram information available so I wonder what a bad resistor would have to do with the back lights on the control head. Just a thought. May or may not be related to your problem.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Quote:>>Battery is measuring 12v"

If that's with engine running it's not enough.

To add to Jeff's post - check fuses with a test light and bulbs might have overheated. Dunno but would check,
