Hello
I recently bought a 2008 Frontier with approx 155000 km on it. Its in excellent condition so I jumped at it without knowing much about the truck . This forum has been a wealth of information for me and after I read a few posts I crawled under the truck to see if the rad bypass had been done... and it had (Phew). After about 3 months of driving I noticed the radiator started leaking so I replaced it with a TYC brand radiator
So here are my questions.. Can I assume the new Rad does not have the defect and I can reverse the bypass or should I play it safe and leave it as is and get an additional trans cooler/ temp gauge if needed.... from what Ive read, OBD readers can't read trans temp on these trucks and I will need to install a gauge

I plan on doing a little bit of hauling in the summer (small camper, 3 hours travel time...eastern Canada, which can mean hot muggy summers but no mountains) and I don't like the idea of reducing the OEM cooling without at least some way of monitoring whats going on

Thanks in advance. Love the Truck


TB

Welcome to the forum. My advice for towing: hook up the transmission cooler on the new rad and consider getting airbags for the rear leaves as our springs go flat rather quickly.

Thanks for the info
I will probably take you advice and hook the Trans cooler up before I do any towing. The rear springs just had extra leaves added (according to the previous owner) so it may not be an issue. I guess time will tell.


Thanks again
