The AC condenser on these has a transmission cooler built into it. If the cooler leaks the entire condenser will have to be replaced and AC recharged. The trans cooler used to be built into the radiator, and a leak there could contaminate trans fluid with coolant, much more damaging to a trans. This is one for a shop, only because you want them to evacuate and capture the refrigerant and then recharge the system afterwards. Not really a DIY job unless you have specialized tools.
