Transmission cooler?

I can't tell if my 2012 Terrain SLE-2 4 cyl. has a transmission cooler or not. If not, should I have one installed before towing ~ 1,300 pounds?

A TC is a pretty cheap insurance policy - depending on the type of towing (hills or not) that you are planning, and how often.

Re: Transmission cooler?

Does the price sticker show it has a towing option, or just the hitch?


Just checked with edmunds and it doesn't show the towing option for 2012, just the hitch and harness.
That means you don't have a tranny cooler.

Answer depends on how often you are going to tow a trailer. Once in a great while, maybe not. Towing on a regular basis, yes, add one.

I didn't get the tow package or hitch. Im not going to be pulling a lot. Maybe a couple times a month and only about 1,300 pounds.

No harm in getting one installed, as long as it does not void your warranty.
