So, yesterday I'm getting the car ready for tonight's road trip to Dallas when I noticed a potential problem.
You might remember that I had installed a tranny cooler and temp gauge back in the summertime.
For the sensor, I had installed a temperature manifold inline.
Well, one of the trans fluid hoses attached to this manifold was rubbing on a bolt head on the engine and had almost chaffed completely through the line.
It's a good thing I caught it, or this might have turned out to be the most miserable road trip ever.
A new length of hose and some additional tie wraps solved the problem.
Whew!

Yikes, good thing you checked...

What kind of tranny cooler did you install? I'm thinking about going that route soon too.

I've got the stock Subaru cooler from Australia (made in Canada).
You can do just as good with the smallest B&M.

The temp manifold can be seen in the second photo (the blue thing).
I ended up scrapping the mechanical gauge and went with the electric.
