Transmisson filter?

Ok, is this a transmission filter that came standard on my 1993 jeep? Or did someone add it? The jeep starting leaking trans fluid when I crawled underneath is when I spotted this filter. It's on the front right of the jeep. That's why I think inline trans filter and not power steering filter.

The stock one is a pancake affair inside the pan.

I found one on carpartsdiscount.com for around $8. Should I replace it or remove it?? Does it even help with filtering the trans fluid?

I'm sure it helps. Up to you. More important though stop the leak. And has the internal filter ever been replaced lately??

I've only had the jeep for so I don't know, however I have a feeling it has not been done in a while. It is definitely on my to do list.

I added a filter for a few reasons: Filtering, an extra quart of fluid helps with cooling, the filter housing I got has a sender for a temp gauge.

Jbokty that is great info. A lot of folks with autos need to look into the filter an external cooler and a temp gauge.
