Oh, by the way,The aftermarket has addressed Fords problem. PRO-LOC a division of Sun Coast Converters in Ft,Walton Florida,builds a 13 1\2",.900 thick billet steel cover,twice the TCC clutch surface area,furnaced brazed, with tig welded fins.Oh.....about a $1,500.upgrade that,with other mods makes it the best unit when it leaves the shop!

BODYSHOT1,
Hey,not really.There is a one way check valve in the return cooler line near the radiator that will plug and cause no return oil flow back to the lube curcuit of the transmission causing catostrophic gear failure.Also,there is a spring that holds od clutch that has about 800psi against a thrust bearing that dosn't care,loaded or not.
There is a new cooler fitting replacement that cures the lube concerns but usually you find out too late.the one way valve is there to keep the torque converter from draining back overnight.

Clackster,

so if I asked to have this checked/replaced by the dealer before, would the problem be solved?

Lube problem solved!
The repair kit comes with the entire cooler line,but a very low cost upgrade repair.
