depending what you are hearing, it can also be the pump seals and converter issue. at any rate you would end up cleaning out the passages during a Rbld. the service bulletins and recalls can be performed at that time if you read and verify they apply to your VIN.
The cooler issue can be addressed during the Rbld. too.
