Question Trans overheating - 2011 JK

I have the old issue of the transmission overhead light coming on after uphill travel. When either in 4x4 or two wheel.. So I was thinking of mounting a fan to the flywheel to push more air though the radiator and oil cooler. Not a big fan of those electric fans, had issues on a previous jeep GC and saw where someone had mounted a hard fan to replace the electric fan. Has anyone done this before?

If its just trans temp that bothers you it would simple to install a aux trans cooler. If you have overall heat condition then you have a cooling system problem that you need to address. I live in the desert west of Phoenix AZ and have never had a problem with heat even when running low range in sand on a 100+ day 2001 TJ, 2007 JK and currently 2010 JKR all with stock cooling system's.

I agree, a trans cooler would most likely solve the problem. Also, use 4L unless going over 25-30 or so, and turn O/D off. You can turn on your AC to force the cooling fan to come on as well. Hope this helps.

We have a nice Mishimoto Transmission Cooler Kit that includes everything you need to install it. The kit is really well put together and people seem to get great results from them. Let me know if you'd like a quote or if you have any questions!
