So I just installed an aux transmission cooler. I test drove it around the block and the transmission lines seem to be in tact.

The problem is: When I got out and opened the hood. There was a little bit of steam venting from the cap. Not a lot, but enough to be visible.

Background: To install a new transmission line into the radiator, I had to remove the bottom radiator hose to get access to the bottom line. When I took it out, obviously, lots of coolant came out. Anyways, I put the coolant hose back on and filled the radiator with coolant. I only drove the Jeep less than a quarter of a mile while accelerating lightly. And when I opened the hood, a felt a HUGE wave of heat blow out.

Why might the engine get so soon?

Any help would be appreciated.

Did u re-check the coolant level after driving? May have been a air bubble in the system and the rad wasn't as full as u thought it was when u refilled it.:dunno:
