11" Wide x 7-1/4" tall x 7/8" deep, efficient heat exchanger will prolong the life of your transmission and improve its overall performance. Specifically designed for Dodge Caravans with late-model, electronic overdrive transmissions.
Note: The Derale Insta-dapt radiator adapter fits most Dodge Caravans with 5/16" transmission lines, but not all. In some cases, additional fittings or alteration of the OEM lines or hoses may be required for installation.
One of the more popular cooling systems available, the radiator-style, plate-and-fin heat exchanger provides increased surface area so that fluids can spread out along the finned chambers to cool faster. In addition to the increased surface area, this cooler also features turbulator technology, whereby fluids are agitated continuously, not only to facilitate heat transfer, but also to prevent any undesirable drop in pressure.

The cooler is a great add-on to help guarantee the life of my transmission in my 2007 Chevy Trailblazer. The size was perfect for mounting just behind my grill and well in front of the stock radiator with barely any modification/trimming of the surrounding plastic. I have no real world temperatures but I am happy knowing the the temps in my transmission are at least a little bit cooler. The only mist-step is the included mounting pieces. While handy to get things in place after forgetting to pick-up bolts, washers and nuts, the plastic ties really didn't hold up well for the 2 weeks until I removed them. They also don't play well with the bendable mounting kit unless you have something to eat up the space when the ties are tightened as far as they can go. Again, it's minor and had I remembered to purchase the hardware I eventually used prior to the actual install, I probably wouldn't even be writing this. Also, the hose is certainly not long enough for my application. 141336

I received my cooler for my 1989 Olds 88 in record time (e.g. 2 days)! After reading the instructions, I saw that the manufacturer recommends the cooler be installed in series with the cooler integral to the cars radiator. This requied addtional hose (about 3ft.). The local auto parts store carried 5/16" hose (same hose ID but a different mfr than that supplied) but found the auto parts store hose next to impossilbe to place over the cooler header fitting. I was able to install a clamp before the tubing walked itself off. I would recommend taking the cooler to the parts store and fit it up with a hose that fits properly if you need to get extra for installation. I appreciated the video that was available on your website to familiarize myself with the installation before I attempted the project. I have yet to put it to the test with a trailer in tow. Seems to be quality product. The instructions were well written. Thanks! 23813

Trailer hitch / light kit / transmission cooler Shipping and product description were awesome! Price was better than i found anywhere else. The only problem i had was with my particular model of vehicle (2005 Saturn Vue). Fishing the carriage bolt would not have been possible with out removal of the rear bumper fascia ..... period. Also one of the side mounting bolts completely broke off when i was torquing it down to instruction spec. The instructions said 62 ft lbs. of torque, my wrench was set at exactly that and the bolt broke off right at the head. Im not upset sometimes you just get a bad bolt. Bottom line i would recommend etrailer to anyone. 5216

The cooler arrived intact on my doorstep with all the parts and pieces present, and it took about two hours to install the unit. I needed to fabricate some mounting brackets as I didn't want to use the plastic ties that go through the radiator. I have a 2011 Subaru Outback with a 3.6 motor and a 5 speed automatic. I frequently tow a boat and need to keep the tranny cool, specially during the summer months. The installation is pretty straight forward as per instructions that are included. Each vehicle will be a bit different but a home mechanic should be able to install this cooler fairly easily. 6830

Cooler came just in time. I installed it in my 2010 Subaru Forester so that I can safely pull my trailer without boiling my transmission. Glad to say I needed no special fittings to get the job done. The cooler looks well made and the size is just right...anything bigger would be a tough fit. 36817

I wish I would have done this sooner. The cooler was way simpler to install than I ever thought it would be. The only difficult part was romoving the front clip of my 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche. I feel much more secure knowing my transmission is cooler while towing my camper. 137861
Very nice cooler. I really like it. I would recommend it, worked great on my 2003 Silverado. 84769
by: James P.07/22/2011
Very helpful video, install on 2007 Nissan Quest went great. I wouldn't have done it without the video (or pictures), but seeing the job done gave me confidence. 1K mile trip so far since the install and all is well. Thanks. 20010
by: Al H.09/14/2011
Item was as promised, good quality, installation was a B..... on the Toyota but that is not the fault of etrailer. Would and will buy again from them. 23942
by: Georg H.05/23/2013
So far so good. Just installed the cooler a couple days ago getting ready for a move trailing a full load for 1000mi. Install guide and descriptions are very generic and therefore require a bit forethought and pre-work. Will see how the product will hold up in the long run. Shipping and transactions with etrailer have been excellent once again. 81679

I just want to thank the customer service team at etrailer.com. I got very quick responses with very helpful and educated professional answers within minutes through email. The product selection and prices are great and so is the service team. I didn't get to install my new transmission cooler yet but I can say the kit has every single thing I need including awesome instructions with clear diagrams and everything and the staff was very helpful helping me choose what fittings I needed to avoid having to cut my stock transmission lines. They seem to have all their bases covered. I'll provide pictures after the install. Thanks etrailer staff I appreciate all the info and great products. Keep it up. Neil Borne 231817

Just installed this today on 2007 Honda Odyssey. JUST enough hose. Enough hose clamps if you reuse the factory ones on the trans connections. Did not need to take the bumper or bumper cover off, just the grill, and top and bottom covers. However, this makes it very difficult to get those zip rods attached. It was possible, but I had to get my tiny wife to fit her hands down there for the bottom ones. Now, lets see if it will save my tranny when I start towing 3500 lbs for 2 months and 4000 miles... will have to report back then and give a real rating then. 251259

worked very well thanks 90967

Product was just as expcted but I did not care for the mounting so I made my own mount, two bars across the bracket that holds the hood release.This centered the unit near the bottom, for the connections the new hose reached a hose between two steel lines from the outlet of the factory cooler. I bought two 3/8 barbed couplings and 4 more hose clamps I cut the factory hose and series the unit to these hoses a few tyraps to stop chafing and i was done. 73520
Great product. Super easy to install on my 2009 V6 4Runner. Keeps my transmission nice and cool. I did buy a little bit of extra hosing to mount it further on the other side of the car. But otherwise a complete kit for mounting it. 254361

Wow! Massive reduction in temperature with this bad boy. Driving the same exact route, my van trans temp would be in the 160-175 degree range. With this cooler, I am running at 120-130 degrees. It is quite obvious that it is doing its job. This is a good quality kit for an excellent price. 165593
by: Johnny B.07/14/2014
Awesome! This is the 1st time that I've ever installed a Derale series 8000. Let me tell you, it's a great investment. Great, especially living in a sub tropical climate. It helped with my transmission tremendously in towing, & regular everyday use. A great buy & a great price. 141189
by: alan c05/30/2011
I ORDERED THE FITTINGS THEY SUGGESTED WITH THE COOLER .THAT didnt work so i had to cut and flair the steel lines any way. d13018 was not the right fitting for my s10. what i needed was shown on the box it came in but not sent. good luck 15677
install was easy with a little bit of mechanical knowledge and i was surprised at how quickly i recieved it in the mail. just 2 days with standard shipping. ive only had it on my truck a few days but it seems to work just fine. 57309
by: Jeff B.05/24/2015
Good kit- again, very tight hose to cooler body fit, but it has to be tight to stay free of leaks, and the videos TELL you it will be tight so you are forewarned.All the other necessary parts seem to be there. 196421
Received the product in no time and was exactly what I ordered. I had never ordered from etrailer before and found my part via a Google search. I would order from them again and do recommend them. 60047
by: Andrew F.01/24/2014
I like this product it fit up very good and it was easy to install the adapter was good but the zip ties weren't very good at all they actually broke but overall it was good product 114678
A fairly simple install, just as advertised. My boat trailer weight is max-capacity for my 2014 FJ Cruiser, this little cooler brought my trans temps down about 30-40 degrees. 252207

Arrived in a timely manner, still waiting on my Jeep coolant radiator to install the transmission cooler. It came with everything in the box and I cant wait to install it. 29223

Haven't tried pulling my trailer up a long hill yet, but the cooler looks good. The instructions were very helpful, even though I couldn't mount it exactly as suggested. 196916
by: Scot T.08/10/2012
The product looks like a quality cooler. Installation was not to difficult. I needed to purchase more hose but overall I'm happy with my purchase from etrailer. 51261
Nice kit, relatively easy to install. Like some other reviews, I had to get extra hose, but overall a good addition for smaller vehicles that are towing. 43031
by: David S.06/28/2011
Easily installed item. Front bumper was a bear to pull off but this item was no issue. Took car on 2,300 mile trip just after, no issues or leaks. 18132
Took a minute to get it in the adapter made it alot easier to install no leaks and running cooler well worth the time and money to put it in 259857

A Nice Trans Cooler, Works Great, Perfect Size and Easy to Install.Quick Shipping, A Great Company to do Business with. Thanks!!!! 227646
Easy to install. Had to take the grille out of my 04 Forester. Put the hose on one side before you mount the cooler. Works great. 31065
Great product! Would buy again! Easy installation! Makes my car run smoother and hopefully prolonging the transmissions life. 137162
I use etrailer regularly and I can say from my experiences that they are the best and I will continue with these folks!!!!! 220874
This item is awesome. After installing and trying it, my trans temp dropped by 40 degree when pulling a trailer 86907
by: Richard K01/20/2011
Havent installed yet. But I have reviewed the car and this product. I have no doubt it will work as designed. 5799
The only problem was the hose was not long enough. Had to order another hose to complete the installation. 33970

I would have enjoyed a larger cooler to bypass my radiator with, but will make this work. 144213
