Thought this was helping keep the trans fluid clean; I guess not.

30 days/580 miles as trans. cooler line filter:



(unsure which sub-forum best applied since this is an engine oil filter used as a trans. filter)

Not cool. At least you found it.

What prompted you to pull the filter and cut it open after only 580 miles/30 days?

The trans only has a screen type "filter". Just curious to see what it might have filtered out.

Based on the appearance of the glue, I don't think the joint was ever together.

As an aside to the OP-I use the Baldwin B2-HPG as a transmission filter, as long as you have room it makes a great ATF filter, plus it's rated to be used on ATF.

Thanks, it wouldn't be impossible to fit a larger filter, but space is lacking.

Would the detergents in ATF be strong enough to separate glue on a pleated filter?

My Saturn uses a spin on filter. I doubt the media adhesive for the spin on transmission filter is any special formula different than oil filter' s adhesive.

I just cut this Purolator made Bosch oil filter, what a beauty!
