My bad.. But still only 2 years apart. It was after 2006 that the styles changed enough to make any difference. Between yours and mine, there isn't much. I'll check in the A.M, just got home and it's already dark. Plus dinner and beer are calling..

Judging from my tranny temps while towing my camper the foot square one is a tranny cooler. There may also be one in the radiator and they are plumbed usually in series. Behind that is the air conditioning condenser and then your radiator. Wasn't aware they put a power steering cooler in there.

Reason: I fixed the spelling. "Granny temps" are different than "Tranny temps"! :lol:
