Default Need help with radiator replacement

Working on 2008 PT Cruiser, new radiator has 2 inlets on bottom tank that old radiator didnt have. Part number is right for non turbo. The old radiator has ac condensor and transmission cooler bolted to the radiator. Are the two inlets at bottom for a built in transmission cooler? Not sure. Filled radiator and did not cover those two inlets and no water leeks out?

Wild guess: Yours is a 5 speed. Right?

Power steering cooler. Trans cooler is external.
Direction determined by hose routing only.

I thought that was on a bore hog? lol If nothing was connected before don't have to now. Just plug them to keep junk out. Plastic , metal or whatever.

Suggestion:
Buy a small cooler, plumb it to the PS , These little 4 bangers put out a lot of heat right next to the PS rack, wouldn't hurt
