    The Jatco JF015E (CVT-7) CVT used in the Mirage has a heat exchanger that is mounted within the transmission housing and is tied in with the engine coolant/antifreeze circuit. Just as an internal-combustion engine is most efficient when it is at it's full operating temperature, so is the CVT.

    I would advise against spending money on a transmission cooler as it's temperature is intended to be maintained with the engine. Instead consider using the money and effort in a transmission fluid replacement and filter change.

    Some Nissan's have an external cooler as well. If you are in a hot or hilly location I'd look into finding an external cooler. Unless the fluid is being cooled to the point that it can't get up to proper operating temp I see no problem.

    But with an extra cooler you have more places for fluid to leak.

    I've drained and filled my fluid twice because I've been having some issues, whining and grinding noise when I foot the accelerator sometimes and at those times it's days where it's over a hundred degrees out, so in theory I imagined the Heat is what's causing the tranny issues.. to just today I spoke with a dealer service advisor and he talked about how the CVT doesn't really generate a lot of heat like the more common Transmissions out there and mentioned if there is a problem then it's probably within the clutches. And so I think I will redirect funds towards getting my coolant serviced. Currently at 91k and Counting
