What type of engine and transmission? AFAIK, the only cooling for the tiptronic transmissions is the main radiator of the car. There are 2 oil lines from the trans that flow through the radiator to provide cooling. That is for V6 and 1.8t engines. W8 and/or ROW engines may be different.

They had issues with the torque converter lock up seals. I had to replace my TC around 109K. It's more common on the 4Mo and TDI cars. You can add an extra cooler, but I don't think it will help much.

Found the problem. All that I did was disconnect the battery and discharged the power. Reconnected to reset the computer so it would re-look at things. Now it’s fine.
Did find the trans cooler line. Right in front of radiator. A small plastic loop of tubing to/fro the trans. Kind of cheap looking.
