    Does the holden 6 speed auto have any issues like the ford 6 speeder/trans cooler/milkshakes etc?
    Do they need a standalone trans cooler fitted for insurance?

    They do run the coolant through the radiator so could happen, although not reported often. I fitted a trans cooler to mine and noted the average trans temp dropped from about 90 degrees (in QLD) to about 75. So oil and seals should last better. If doing so make sure it sits low down where it can get direct airflow, not up behind the front bumper.

    LE Holden's and HSV's have big trans coolers factory fitted.

    Just the standard version built in to the radiator.
