Exclamation would a cooler have prevented this?

Ok i found out that my tranny failed cause the rear planetary gear bearing failed. Would a cooler have prevented this situation? Would a shift kit have made it worse?

My 97 lx is stock except:
Silencer=RIP, Autolite Copper Cores, K&N Panel, Jet 180 t-stat, J-Mod, Derale 22500 GVM Tranny Cooler
Third Cat delete, LMS Mufflers (thanks to 91hellcat)
Custom Bullitt Style Gauge Faces from Scott
Kenwood 600 Watt amp, Volfenhag 12in Sub (sub and amp for sale, just PM me), JVC 7000 Head Unit
Uniden 68XL Classic CB/PA, Wilson 2000 Trucker 6 ft. antenna w/coil

I am selling my sub and amp! PM me if you are interested!
My tranny is now Jerryific!

Well the shift kit would have probably prevented this from happening in the first place. When I say shift kit, I am refering to the technical article here, not a kit that cheats by raising line pressure across the board or in the wrong areas.

A cooler also would have prevented this, by keeping the fluid cooler, resulting in more viscosity, meaning you have less metal to metal contact and friction, resulting in longer life.

Cooler is better, but if debris from the TC or cooler got to that bearing, it was gonna frag sooner or later no matter what else you did. Good argument for the cooler filter Ford sells. Can't see shift kits making any difference except in clutch and band wear,and a shift kit won't stop the PCM slipping the TCC.

Since you mention this is your second one did you replace the radiator or at least install a filter in your return line? When a trans goes south it sends a lot of debris into the cooler and if it makes it back into your new trans guess what......

Not to hijack the thread... When I did my Transmission swap, I installed a B&M aux cooler in the line before my B&M plate cooler. *IF* the transmission that I put in where to go south, the aux filter I installed *SHOULD* stop any debris from getting into my cooler, right?
