Oh, the other consideration is that ideally you would plumb the aux. ATF cooler in a manner where you have 2 isolation valves and a cooler bypass valve, so that in cold weather the fluid does NOT go through the aux. cooler. Once a season you would, in this manner, eliminate the aux. ATF cooler, and then once per season you would switch it back in.

Note: you plumb the auxiliary cooler AFTER / Downstream of the in-radiator-tank ATF cooler.

Yes, this switching-in and out of the aux. cooler is a minor PITA -- but that would prevent the ATF from becoming too viscous...

I always read articles like that and find them to be useless. Ofcourse there are some vehicles that will break down faster and require service but as long as one keeps and maintains their vehicle, it should need service.
