Derale Dyno-Cool Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit - Class I - Economy - Acura TL, 2004

13" Wide x 5" tall x 3/4" deep, reliable, all-aluminum tube-and-fin cooler extends the life and improves overall functioning of your Acura TL's transmission.


  • Improves functioning and overall performance of transmission
  • Extends life of transmission and prolongs period between necessary fluid changes
  • Cuts down on heat-related failures
  • Agitates fluid with built-in, embossed turbulators for more efficient cooling
  • Constructed of durable, lightweight aluminum
    • Thermal-conductive metal provides excellent transfer of heat
  • Includes:
    • High-temperature, OEM spec hose with stainless steel clamps
    • Nylon mounting rods
    • Insta-dapt radiator adapter
  • Recommended for subcompact cars
  • Imported


  • Inlets: 11/32" hose barb
  • Overall dimensions: 13" wide x 5" tall x 3/4" deep
  • Core width: 10-1/8"
  • Distance between inlets: 3-3/4"
  • 1-Year warranty

Note: The Derale Insta-dapt radiator adapter fits most Acura TLs 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.

Perhaps the simplest type of heat exchanger, the tube-fin effectively cools a variety of automotive systems. The concept is simple: Fluid cools as it travels through the core by transferring heat out to the fins. The fins then provide the surface area necessary for sufficient heat exchange to take place, allowing the heat pulled from the fluid to dissipate into the surrounding air. Quick, easy and effective.

  • Optimal Mounting Location for Transmission Cooler on 2006 Buick Rendezvous
  • The best spot to install the transmission cooler is in front of the radiator, where it will get maximum air flow. If necessary it can be mounted behind the radiator, if there is sufficient clearance for installation. Installing the cooler in front of your radiator would almost certainly involve removing the grille and possibly the front fascia under the bumper to improve access. We have an installation video showing a cooler being installed on a different vehicle, watching the video might

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2008 Chevy Uplander
  • Transmission coolers are not vehicle specific so you can use any one that will fit in the space you have available in the engine compartment. There are 3 locations you could mount the cooler: in front the A/C condenser, behind the condenser and in front of the radiator, or behind the radiator which is not very efficient. Check these areas for how much space you have to make sure a cooler fits. The most popular cooler is # D13503. It measures 11 inches across, 8-3/4 inches tall, and 7/8 inches

  • Does the Derale Transmission Cooler for a 2001 Honda Odyssey Come with Installation Instructions
  • The transmission cooler # D12901 does come with installation instructions. Since transmission coolers are not vehicle specific, the instructions will not cover any individual vehicles. The output from the transmission will first run to the factory cooler which is mounted inside the radiator. The return line will then go to the supplemental cooler, and from there back to the transmission. A cooler can be mounted in basic locations depending on the space available. The most efficient place is i

  • Transmission Cooler and Suspension Enhancement for a 1995 Plymouth Voyager
  • A transmission cooler would definitely be a good call for your 1995 Plymouth Voyager since the factory cooler by itself is adequate at best for non-towing situations. The best way to pick out a transmission cooler is to measure the amount of space you have in front of your radiator and pick out the largest cooler that would fit there. If you have room for it I would recommend you go with a Derale Transmision Cooler part # D13502. This cooler measures 11 inches wide by 7-1/4 inches tall by 7/8
