Leaky transmission cooler - need some advice

Hello fellow enthusiasts, my motorhome has yet another problem. The transmission cooler has failed allowing transmission fluid into the radiator and cooling system creating quite a mess.


The shop pulled the cooler and pressure tested it and it leaked at 15psi.


They found a new one for $2800.00 cdn.


That is not really an option for me and this money pit.


Does anyone have a part number for this or know where I may be able to source and aftermarket one.


It is a 2006 MADP 400 ISL Spartan MM chassis MH3000 transmission.


Thanks in advance

Visone Salvage has several of them for about $400.00. They all work the same way, so the configuration doesn't have to be identical as they can reconfigure the coolant hoses and the mount. They just mount under the frame, so a mount is easy to make or change.

Thanks, I called spartan directly and was able to get the part for less than half of what the RV dealer was charging in Canada, just the $310.00 overnight shipping charge hurts. Once again really appreciate your input and assistance

Grab you another cool drink, change your shipping to 3 day and enjoy the savings. Good luck.
