Transmission cooling line attachment

Post by 78elk » Sun Aug 11, 2019 10:53 am

I put in a used 2004r transmission awhile back. The cooling lines where attached to the Radiator. I know 1 line is sending fluid to cool it and the other to return it to the transmission. Where should the return line connect on radiator and transmission?

The bottom cooling line on the 2004r hooks up the the top of the radiator cooling tank

Thank you. Is the bottom line the cooler cooler line?

I'm adding a 2004 Cadillac transmission cooler. It has a thermostat that has to be put in with the flow direction. I want to make sure I put it in correctly.
