  • Installation Of Supplemental Transmission Cooler For 1992 Ford F-150

  • Installation of Oil and Transmission Coolers on 2000 Ford F-250 with 5.4L V8 Engine
  • Most oil and transmission coolers like the Derale Atomic-Cool # D15950 are not vehicle specific so you can install as large (and efficient) a cooler as you have the space to install it. An exception is the pan-type of transmission cooler like the Derale # D14208 which is designed specifically for vehicles with an E4OD, 4R100, 5R100, or 5R100W transmission. Coolers are also NOT fluid-specific to either oil or transmission fluid - they can be used in either application. If you intend to...

  • Transmission Cooler for 1998 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Pickup Towing 7000-lb Trailer Load
  • The good news is that since transmission coolers are not vehicle-specific you are free to install as large a cooler as you have the room to install it. Coolers come in several class ratings depending on their cooling action; I suggest a Class IV cooler like the 11 x 12-inch Derale # 13504 you referenced or the larger 15 x 10 Derale # D12904. For either one you will use hose fitting kit # D13035. Two linked articles will give you lots of good background on transmission coolers and I've...

In such cases a fan-powered cooler is definitely the way to go. Coolers are not fluid-specific, meaning that any given cooler can be used for engine oil or transmission fluid. The are not vehicle-specific either. We offer both single-path and...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2002 Chevy 2500 Duramax with Allison Transmission
  • No, the transmission that is in the 2002 2500 Chevy truck with a 6.0 gas engine will most likely be a 4L80E transmission that a standard transmission cooler would fit. Since your 2008 Chevrolet Silverado has the Allison A1000 transmission, a standard cooler is not recommended because it can restrict fluid flow and therefore prevent proper lubrication of the transmission.

  • Locating Transmission Fluid Return Line on 1999 Acura TI
  • To determine which line is the return line, you'll want to begin with your 1999 Acura TI being totally cooled off. Next, start the car and put it in drive for about a minute and then put it back in park and shut it off. Now you'll just need to feel the two lines connecting the radiator and transmission. The cooler of the two lines is the return line and the one you would use to install the Derale Combination Transmission and Engine Oil Cooler, # D15902, on.

This kit would not tie into your power steering pump or fluid at all as that is a separate system. You will want to connect the transmission cooler downstream of your factory cooler. This will provide you with the best possible...

  • Transmission and Oil Cooler Recommendations for 2007 Chevy Express 1500 With 4.3L Engine
  • Installing a transmission and an oil cooler is a excellent way to provide inexpensive protection for your engine and transmission. If you call your Chevy dealer and provide your VIN, they should be able to tell you if your Chevy Express was equipped with an oil cooler. Since it's a 1/2 ton van (1500 Series) I'd doubt it, but it would be good to check. Let's start with the transmission cooler. Since you won't be towing much weight, you won't need the biggest cooler available. I'd recommend...
