Truck is a '94 fzj-80 U.S spec. So I was doing a little inspecting around my truck and figuring out routing of hoses and such just to get more familiar with things...Take a look at the below photos: Both lines from the trans cooler look like they've been cut!? Return and sending line...? (The oil you see in the second photo is liquid wrench I sprayed on the bumper bolts for removal.) I have checked transmission fluid level periodically and here and there when I fill up, or do an oil change etc, it has always been full and I do not get any transmission fluid leaks on the ground either so I am perplexed...I thought I read on here when researching this that the fluid gets sent through the cooler and back into the transmission am I right? Is it possible some PO bypassed the cooler and just routed the sending/return line together? I tried tracing back from the radiator the oil cooler lines (I have looked through a lot of threads before posting for info) and am I correct that in the below photo is the hard lines from transmission that goes to the trans cooler? In the above photo, where you see the clip to the right, and the rubber hose, is about as far as I can see until it disappears underneath the stock skid plate/engine plate part. I assume I have to remove that skid plate to find out whats going on past that arrow... But again, no trans fluid leaking... Trans fluid level is full...Shifts fine. What gives?
