Kia Optima: ATF Warmer Description and Operation - Hydraulic System - Automatic Transaxle SystemKia Optima: ATF Warmer Description and Operation

Description
The ATF warmer is mounted on the valve body cover to reduce oil viscosity friction by increasing oil temperature under cold condition, which in turn improves fuel efficiency. It is serial mounted on the entry of the Electronic Throttle Controller (ETC), as shown in the diagram, and minimizes the effects of cabin heating system.
Engine coolant is used for circulating heat in order to heat and cool the transaxle oil.
Rapidly elevates the transaxle oil temperature during the initial cold start of the engine.
Prevents over heating of the transaxle oil while the vehicle is moving.
Transaxle oil warm-up and cooling can be done with a single system.
The water coolant and oil are separate in order to exchange heat.
