Video Transcript for Derale Transmission Cooler D13611 Review

Today we are going to show you Derale Series 9000 plate-fin transmission cooler, part number D13611. In addition to the transmission cooler, you will also receiver the hose, the mounting kit and the line connection kit. This particular cooler uses NPT thread fittings on the top to help you with your connections. Transmission coolers are universal fit items. They are not vehicle specific. You need to measure your vehicle to see how much room you have to mount the cooler. The cooler should be mounted in front of the radiator and, if possible, in front of the AC condenser. This cooler measures about 10-1/2 inches wide by about 4 inches tall and it is right at 1-1/4 inches thick. Derale covers this cooler with a one-year warranty. That does it for the Series 9000 plate-fin transmission cooler kit, part number D13611.

Review from a similar Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit


Thanks for shipping so fast. the response time was impressive! Below is a picture of the install of my Derale trans cooler (13503) installed in my 2010 Jeep Liberty. I did not install with the inlet/outlet on the bottom due to thinking that with a plate and fin type cooler air might get trapped in other end. I mounted it horizontal and put the inlet flow on the bottom to assure that any air gets purged. Odd thing about this trans is that there is a bypass valve on the lines that is thermally operated. The flow to the coolers is bypassed until a specific oil temp is reached. Then flow is allowed to go to the cooler(s). This is done because the trans cooler is completely independent of the radiator. There is no thermal exchange between the trans fluid and the engine coolant. With the transmission fluid bypass valve in operation it is not possible to reduce trans temp below a preset level (or nearer ambient temp) because the thermostat valve simply turns off flow to the cooler(s). In a conventional setup the coolant flows all the time and there is no by-pass. Trans fluid is kept from dropping in temp by the engine coolant which will actually put heat into the trans coolant if the engine coolant is warmer. Chrysler has no thermal exchange with the engine coolant so they thermostatically control flow to keep the trans from operation at a too low temp. In short, in my vehicle I can’t reduce the trans temp below the thermostat setting, But I can assure that the temp of the trans can never be too hot. I also mounted the trans cooler on brackets I made. I was uncomfortable pushing the rods thru the radiator and the air conditioning and factory trans cooler. The added mass of the Derale trans cooler may have been a little too much clamped onto the radiator. I tapped into the original hose with a 3/8 double barb fitting and double clamped all connections. Also below is a exploded parts view showing the by pass valve on the trans lines which directs trans fluid back to the trans and by passes the cooler(s) until the trans gets to a specific temp. It is item #3. 97702

Nice discussion John, thx. Did you have over heating problems prior to cooler install. I have a 2011 Liberty that overheats any time I use it off road on hills in the summer....the Jeep dealer told me that they all do this...I wonder if its actually the bypass thermostat?

Hi Don, My Jeep has never overheated either engine or trans. I have never heard of them being prone to overheating either. If you suspect the inline thermostat on the coolant line I think that would be easy to check simply by feeling the lines and seeing if the line is returning hot trans fluid without going up front to shed some heat. I added the cooler because I put a trailer hitch on and just wanted to make sure that the trans would stay in the proper operating temp range. Are there a lot of bugsdebris in the trans or engine radiators? Is the thermostat cycling properly? Any pinched hoses? If the engine coolant is too hot it may be a pinched hose. Check the temp of the inlet hose versus outlet hose while the engine is running. If the return line is at the same temp as the outlet hose the radiator is not shedding the heat adequately. Cooling problems can be a little tricky but a little detective work can usually solve it.

Review from a similar Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit


2003 dodge caravan sport 3.3l. 110kmiles Where to start... Well it's okay. Fwiw, it's small and made of metal. I didn't know it but there was a trans cooler already installed in my vehicle, and it is aluminum much much better at dissipating heat. I read every review from here to there, watched all the videos. The common theme (sales pitch) is you can't cool your trans fluid enough. I will agree with that statement, but I also believe too much of a good thing is no good. When mounted the way recommended this unit sits directly in front of the air condenser/oem trans cooler/ radiator. It blocks some of the air that is passing through. **I did a before and after check using a infrared heat gun on the lines. It was a few degrees cooler under normal operating conditions, idle for a few minutes. I don't know what the difference is under heavy loads but imagine the difference may grow to as much as 10-15 degrees or so. Somebody in the laboratory (engineers) has this info, but they won't post it for obvious reasons. Not much of a difference at all, but if you are concerned about protecting your transmission, then this may help you to sleep a little better. I'm giving this three stars because while it will help me to sleep a little better it is fairly cheap in materials. The fasteners are plastic zip ties, (PLASTIC). If you've ever used zip ties you know they don't last long. I didn't have to use much hose and only used it on one side, the other end (existing line) was long enough so that worked out fine. I think if you have a newer vehicle this is the route to go as far as bolt on and go there's nothing i found easier than this. However, at over 100k miles, it was not fun at all. My fasteners were stubborn and I could not get behind the a/c condensor to secure the fasteners behind without disconnecting the a/c lines. I didn't have a problem with removing the a/c lines because after over 10 years the a/c was weak and needed to be serviced. This totally bit me in the rear. After assembly, I thought I could simply head over to the a/c shop for a recharge at a fair price. They got half way through and during the recharge mode their machine failed and it could not be completed. After doing extensive research (many many hours) into a/c service, repair and TMI (too much information) overload. My options were either to nickle and dime repair my a/c system or buy a complete a/c kit, spend an entire back breaking weekend installing it, then paying the shop to charge it, looking at upwards of 5 benjamins or more if I did it myself. I settled on an over the counter a/c recharge kit. It worked fine, but that took many hours of research to determine whether or not it was working correctly. In short, if you have a newer vehicle with less than 100k miles or so I'd recommend it only if you are occasionally towing upward of 75% of your vehicle tow capacity. If your towing weight is less, and you are not towing very often then your vehicle already has a cooler in it that should be more than sufficient. If you are towing beyond 75% of your vehicle capacity and doing it frequently, IMO I believe your best option is to get a tow vehicle with a higher rated tow capacity to begin with. For vehicles over 100K miles, it's your call. I did it, but I did it because over the course of 10+years my vehicle rarely carried much weight in it at all and it was always serviced regularly except -as mentioned - the a/c. I still think my transmission has a lot of life in it, and for what I paid on this D13503 in addition to suspension upgrades, I least I know that I did what I could as far as preventive maintenance. One final note, do not remove any more parts/grilles, nuts and bolts, wires, lines on your vehicle than absolutely necessary. Make it as simple on yourself as you can. Some of these videos have you cutting lines, adding compression fittings, ( I didn't need any) removing wiring harnesses, etc, etc,,. Look at the big picture. Every install is a little bit different. And if you decide to go with this transmission cooler it should drop right in and you can carry on with whatever else is more important, family, friends, life, etc.. Thank you very much for reading my review, and may you have a wonderful day. Olajoe 93170

Review from a similar Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit


I recently had the chance to use the Derale 8000 series transmission cooler during my last camping trip and was very impressed. I have a 2001 7.3 Powerstroke with 4" exhaust, S&B intake, gauges and a DP Tuner (60hp tow). I pull a 10,000 pound 5th wheel around Colorado. It seems like every where I pull in Colorado is up hill. It was common to see my transmission temp easily and quickly reaching 210-220 when towing mountain passes. Just before my last trip I installed the Derale cooler and the highest trans temp I saw was 190 at the top of Wilkerson Pass. What is more impressive was how quickly the temp dropped as I came out of the pass. For most of my trip my trans temp stayed around 180. While pulling in the city I saw temps around 200 which I assume was due to stop and go driving and not having the constant airflow through the cooler. I installed the cooler right behind the stock front grill to the vertical post with self tapping screws (the grill still fits perfectly). I then used two thin strips of metal that I got from the hardware store and secured them to the cooler and to the second vertical post. I wanted the cooler in the front of my truck to get maximum airflow. I then spray painted the metal strips black just for looks. I did have to buy an additional 4' of hose due to the location where I mounted the cooler. The optional instal kit was simple. The adaptors screwed in my radiator with no problem at all. Once I decided to mount the cooler the entire project was quick and simple. 143154

Review from a similar Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit


This cooler was easy to install. I did not use the insta-dapter fitting that comes with the cooler. I used a 5/16 barbed coupler instead. One thing I should note is: the instructions state, "warm the vehicle and locate the cooler line and that one will be the return". In my case the radiator made the return line hotter after warming the vehicle for several minutes. I had factory Honda cooler instructions available at install. So return line location was a no brainer. Derale instructions had me second guessing my connections after install was compete. It's installed on a 2002 Honda Odyssey with a newly installed transmission at 70K. I had to remove the headlamp assembly in order to tip the condenser coil far enough to get my hand behind it. 29861

I installed the cooler last weekend in my 2008 Silverado. I've included some pictures. I made a strap to support the upper portion of the cooler and thru bolted the lower to the existing bracket. The hood bracket lower bolts had to be cut down to 1/4" length so they would not contact the cooler. The lower mount bolts had to be spaced to give the hood mount weld nuts clearance. Now to see how it does with a trailer and the Pacific Northwest hills. 81391

Review from a similar Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit


Just installed this on my 2005 Avalanche (since I'll be towing a larger travel trailer now), after seeing the how-to video on this site (relating to the same product). Overall the installation went very well, and I highly recommend this product. While my Avalanche had the factory-installed towing option, it did not provide an external transmission cooler and instead utilized a cooler built into the radiator tank (better than nothing, but an external cooler is best). If you're installing on a 2005-era Chevy 1/2 ton, do yourself a favor and order the D13002 Mounting Kit and the D13035 Radiator Adapter fitting; and while you're at it I recommend getting another 3' or so of 5/16" transmission cooler hose. The first two items make it a no-brainer to install the cooler, and while the cooler hose supplied with this cooler is decent, it's just not long enough to supply the hose lengths required to connect to the radiator and the existing line going back to the trans. Of course, I mounted my cooler in the center of the rad on the factory "A" frame (in front of the rad), if you somehow mount the cooler more to the passenger side then the supplied hose might be long enough. I ended up using two of the supplied self-tapping screws, but needed to obtain four bolt/washer/locknut combos to mount the brackets to the cooler's mounting holes. The cooler comes with four pads and plastic straps to mount it against the radiator, but no one I talked to likes those as they tend to break over time. Better off mounting it properly :-) Since I don't have a transmission temp gauge I can't tell exactly how much cooler it's operating, but a trans cooler like this is pretty much a requirement for any substantial trailer weight. 153766

I put this on my 2013 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner as I wanted to have the added protection for my transmission, should I tow anything upwards of the max limit. The Tacoma with the tranny cooler and a class IV hitch can reach 6,500 pounds towing capacity, but I doubt I will test that limit. Had the Toyota mechanics install, as the truck was still under warranty and I did not want to take a chance in voiding it if it were put in wrong. I located it in the upper left front corner of the radiator, and using an infrared scanner, the fluid temp shows a noticeable drop from input to output. Bottom line is that was easy to install and does the job it was designed to do. 94413

Review from a similar Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit


I have a 2007 Silverado Classic w/ 4.8L and was somewhat nervous about buying the tranny cooler because I have never done this before, but honestly, it's pretty self-explanatory. I bought the 8000 series I also used GM adapter D13035 and it fit easily in the "out" position of the radiator. I placed the cooler in the very front of the oil cooler so that it would get 100% air. However, because I did not want the ties to go through the oil cooler and then the radiator, there is a bottom bracket that goes across <--------------> the oil cooler and I cut slits into it and made holding bracket for the trans. cooler so now it is about an inch in front of the oil cooler. This will allow maximum cooling because air can circulate all the way around the cooler. I'll post some pics when I can. -Art P.s. Had to buy about 3 more feet of hose, but not too bad of an install for someone who hasn't done this before. 31532


Comments

I am installing this on a 2007 Silverado, new body style, V6, 4.3L . I assume the trnasmission return metal line will have to be cut and the rubber line coming from the cooler will fasten to it? Is there an adapter for this or just a standard hose crimp?

comment by: Derek - 02/10/2014

You will connect the new cooler input to the OEM cooler output using an adapter, part D13035. From there output hose on the new cooler will fit over the barb on the metal OEM return line and use a hose clap to secure. We have a video of this kit being installed on a 2011 Suburban, the install will be very similar on your Silverado.

Most passenger cars do not have factory installed transmission coolers, including the Vision in all likelihood. On that car you will find a radiator for cooling the engine block and an A/C compressor condensor. If the Vision did have one, it would be integrated into the radiator at one of th corners.

Review from a similar Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit


AWESOME Product!! I own a 1993 Bronco 5.0ltr. E4OD. Monster Trans. had built me a transmission(2nd one) I installed it along with a Derale remote filter/temp unit to help monitor trans temp, Well 220+ degrees on the I-95 was WAY too hot. I was running a 6-tube/fin cooler in line w/ radiator cooler. It just wasn't doing the job. I received my cooler yesterday and installed it right away. This morning I thought my temp guage was broke, it took longer to reach 140, finallly in town OD canceled I was at 165. This evening after work I performed the Highway test. With the ac on, cruise set at 72mph, I drove 50 miles, temp never went above 190-195. Even at the stop light at the exit ramp the temp climbed to 200 then dropped quickly once I got on the highway again. I do think I have my problem under control. I did order the Derale Cooler pan as well, haven't installed yet. SO I am hoping to acheive at least 180-185 highway temp. No more burnt transmissions. At this time I am running Mercron V, but am thinking of a full synthetic trans fluid later. 92991

I have a 2010 Silverado 4x4 with a 6speed auto trans. I load it with a 3000 bl. cab over camper and take on the Sierra Nevadas a lot. Trans temp is very important to me as a former GM certified automatic transmission technician. For two week prion to installing this cooler I documented my trans temp reading under different driving conditions and ambient temperatures. Trans ran consistently between 180 to 210 degrees with no load in the bed. After installing this cooler and driving it under the same conditions as before, I have a clear in temp by 40 degrees. I also notice that if temp goes up from climbing a large grade, it s back down MUCH faster. A lot of these reviews talk about how easy it was to install the cooler... I would like to stress how well it works!!

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.

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

Review from a similar Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit


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

Installed the product today. My installation is pretty unique on the Jeep Liberty CRD. This vehicle has a pusher fan in front of the stack of heat exchangers (Condenser/Trans cooler, intercooler, radiator), so the "zip tie" installation is not an option. Also, the stock trans cooler, which is the bottom 1/4 of the A/C condenser, has a different type of fitting on it. Product seems to work as intended. Hoses were a bit hard to get onto the barbs, even with a little transmission fluid as a lubricant. 47086

I found etrailer.com on random search in the internet after we bought our CRV and started researching hitches. U-Haul, whom I use often I use often and like very much, wanted $400 for the hitch, harness and transmission cooler. I found all three on etrailer for $200, and they delivered it quickly (and I mean quickly) and it wasl well packaged, etc. I figured I was a handy person, and thought how hard could it be? Well not only where the products high quality, the instructions clear and easy, they videos are a life savers for people who do better "seeing" a process, rather than "read" about a process. The hitch took me 20 minutes, the harness 20, and the Transmission Cooler about 45. Thank you etrailer for the pleasent experience, I am already going to order a few accessories for ouu CRV, and guess where I will be buying them!

Review from a similar Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit


Product was as described on the website. Installation took a few hours - no where near as easy as shown on the installation video - to install on my 2004 Alero. The challenge is that the upper line transmission cooler line is the line you have to route the cooler hoses to and mounting the cooler and getting the lines routed up to the top of the radiotr houseing required removal of the front bumper, loosening the radiator mount (from below the car - there are two wing nuts) and then CAREFULLY drilling a 11/2" hole in the plastic molding that completely covers the front upper portion of the radiator. Then you can route the hoses through the hole. I bought the optional GM fittings and that made connecting the hoses very easy. 17938

Installed this in a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder. Fit is excellent. I wanted to remove the factory radiator connection as this is a common point of failure allowing coolent to enter the ATF. This is plumbed from the transmission to the factory cooler, then to this new cooler, then back to the transmission. The only thing extra I had to buy was a 3/8 double barb to connect to an existing hose. This cooler adds about half a quart of ATF to the system. I can't speak for any temp drops as I don't have a temp gauge installed yet. 101344

This is a good addition to the radiator cooler that came with the Yukon. Haven't tried it with our trailer yet but the temps are already around 20 to 30 degrees lower around town. Easy installation except for two long drives to the auto supply before I could get it hooked up. The 4 feet of hose was in the box was about 3 feet too short. Since this is a universal fit, it would be nice not to have to try and find more of the correct size and spend gas and another two hours tracking some down. The plastic mounting kit would not work with the center placement I chose and I had to get some steel straps at the hardware store. Other than those two problems, I really like this cooler. 114518

Review from a similar Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit


nice size cooler but not enough hose to do the installation. I bought another 3' of hose so I could mount the tranny cooler in the center of the a/c evaporater for the best possible cooling. I'm hauling a 14' tandem enclosed trailer with a 1/2 ton 01 Ram. the other problem I had was the adapter fittings they reccomend were too small for my stock lines. I do belive I had 5/8 fittings instead of the 9/16 they reccomend you buy. I ended up taking my bottom line off at the radiator and brought it to napa to fit the right ones. all in all nice cooler. The folks at etrailer had no problems taking back the fittings and crediting my account as well as apoligizing for my hassel. 49729

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

My tranny fluid was running hot on my 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP. The transmission on these cars is known to not be able to handle the power of the engine too well so I wanted to do anything to help it out. I had this cooler installed to supplement the factory cooler. I am not towing anything so a large cooler isn't a necessity. So far, this cooler is working as I expected, keeping the fluid below 200 degrees with the temperature outside above 100! Though a larger cooler would probably get the temp closer to where I'd like it, there is not much room in the engine compartment for something much bigger on my car. 19828

Review from a similar Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit


Product arrived as described. I have not installed yet because i see that i will need some additional hose, and the vehicle specific adapter for the radiator trans cooler. I bought this unit for my 2001 dodge ram 1500 in preparation for a cross country drive that i would be pulling a trailer. My truck was a gift but it has 151,000 miles on it and everything is original equipment. It still runs strong I want to keep it running as long as possible. I'm sure I will have to replace the transmission at some point, but if this small investment can keep me going for a few thousand extra miles I'm going to be happy. 122357

Review from a similar Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit


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

2006 GMC 1500 This product is solidly designed and the installation kit well thought out. The connection hose was heavier and better quality than what the auto parts store could provide. I will be adding additional clamps to the connections so there are two on each just as a precaution against leakage. The single clamps are working well for my test period. I fabricated brackets for mine but using the plastic pins would work just as well. It is a huge improvement over the factory cooler. I would recommend it to anyone that is towing near or at truck capacity. 153950

Installed quickly (once I figured out which line was the input and outlet from the radiator - tip: open line, then have someone start the engine, as soon as you see fluid squirting, stop engine. You now know which line is input/output). Towed boat with it just fine, towing trailer 5K this summer. All the websites say "be sure to install transmission fluid cooler if you are going to tow with your Odyssey."

Installed the transmission cooler into a 2005 Honda Pilot. The existing hose is not long enough so had to get a hose splice kit from local automotive supply - not a big deal, but would have been great to have this as part of the kit. The Pilot has two fans behind the radiator which is behind the A/C so I couldn't use the tie down straps, but the holes lined up well with the brace for the power steer cooler and I used stainless steel ties for the top. Overall the quality seems good and the product was delivered on time with no issues. 41261

Installation was done by my local Subaru dealer and at a reasonable cost. I did not want to do it myself since it was a new 2013 Outback and the front bumper had to be removed. They made a couple of brackets and mounted it with bolts instead of using the included plastic ties. We will be towing a Camplite model CL13QBB with a dry weight of 2100 lbs with our 4 cylinder CVT transmission and read the reviews on this cooler and went with it. The fit was perfect.

This cooler was delivered promptly and as advertized and will fit in front of the radiator and behind the grill. The 4 foot length of cooler hose is not long enough to install this cooler on a 2006 Dodge 5.9 diesel.

Product is great. Instalation however was a bit more difficult on a 2008 jeep grand cherokee. I was not told when I purchased tne cooler that I would need to buy another adapter. Also I would suggest customers be aware that certain cars like my jeep cannot be serviced at home. When cutting the tranny line you lose some fluid.. I had to take my jeep to the dealership after instalation because the tranny is factory sealed and only the dealership can check or add fluid. 136793

Fabulous. For a 2002 Odyssey don't remove factory fittings from RADIATOR. Remove hoses from steel tubes that come off the radiator and use a double male fitting from the hardware store for the return hose. To make life really easy, download a copy of Honda's installation for Factory Cooler to figure exactly where the return lines are. Rip off the bumper. Get er done. 1 hr.

  • Which Transmission Cooler is Recommended for a 2005 Honda Pilot
  • Mounting a trans cooler in front of everything else, radiator and AC condenser, will yield the most cooling ability.

The best way to select a cooler is by considering the load you will be towing and the area you will be towing in. The cooler needed to aid in towing a single jet ski in a cool or moderate climate would not be nearly as big as the cooler...
