Many times, the coolers are just some steel tubing that runs somewhere near the front of the vehicle in the air flow. In the case of trans coolers, it can be a tube that runs through the coolant in the lower radiator tank.

So yes, vehicles have coolers, installed standard.

However, the stock coolers are inadequate when you begin to use the vehicle to tow something. That's when ADDITIONAL cooling becomes necessary.

The heavier you tow, the more serious you should be about adding aftermarket cooling.

Are you saying that "additional" or "heavy duty" coolers are standard, or just "coolers" are standard?

Yes all have standard tranny and power steering coolers. And yes they are not enough for towing. We are on the same page with that.

All I was saying was that the first version of the Kia Sedona's came with heavy duty coolers for the power steering and tranny.

Whew! let's move on...

I used a 2002 Explorer V6 to tow my pup. It did a good job. But I was getting high in mileage so I traded it.
