        You can use a radiator for an automatic transmission. You just would not have any trans cooler lines to go to it.
        If the in and out are the same your good. just leave any caps or plugs in where the trans cooler lines would have went.C8-)

          i was wondering about the amount of pressure in the radiator after it gets hot, would it possibly cause the caps or plugs for trans cooler lines to get pushed off?

            the built in trans cooler and coolant are separated internally. so no the caps or
            plugs won’t blow off.

              +1. You should be fine with the automatic radiator as suggested.

                It’s quite common for those radiators to leak at the seals under the top tank. A Denso radiator would be ideal because as you say they are the OE supplier. Don’t worry they only sell the automatic as pointed out you just don’t hook anything up to the trans cooler lines.

                  Eric,

                  What seals are you talking about on the top tank? Do you mean where plastic on the top part of the radiator seals to the aluminum part of the radiator?

                  Does this still mean that the radiator will need to be replaced?

                    Yes and yes.

                      Got a quick question about the trans cooler if I may. I have a 2006 and I noticed where the tran cooler lines come out of the radiator the nuts are pretty rusted and some of the hose clamps are also. Is this normal and should I be concerned? I don’t see any leaks.

                        They will be rusted they live in a harsh environment. Concern would be if trying to remove
                        the lines. May not come off or could break.

                          So I sent a pic of the trans cooler connection all rusted to the dealer…..I just got the car the other day. And they responded saying They ordered the parts and they will call me when they are in…..What a stand up dealer! Got a question will they have to replace the radiator? Or can they just get the fittings? Sorry I’m am new to this….

                            If the radiator is good and nothing breaks fitting wise, The radiator can be reused.
