We'll press on the locking tab, which will release the grill from its position. Now that we have the grill removed, you can see the fasteners that we're securing it.

  • Where is Flat Towing Procedures Listed for a 2014 Nissan Frontier Manual Transmission
  • As long as you followed the flat towing procedure that was outlined in the owners manual of your 2014 Nissan Frontier the dealer cannot blame the braking problem you have on how you flat towed your vehicle. I could see steering components or tires getting damaged from having the key of the vehicle in the wrong position (if that were the case), but not braking parts. But once again, if you followed the instructions for flat towing that were in the owners manual of your vehicle Nissan...

  • The Derale Transmission Pan Cooler # D14208 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit the Ford E40D transmission so it would fit and would help to reduce fluid temperatures. For a solution that would work better a supplemental cooler would be a better option. One like the part # D13503 would do a better job reducing the fluid temperature than a pan cooler. The best way to pick out a cooler is to get the largest one that will fit in the available space in front of the radiator. Another...

  • Best Transmission Cooler Options for 2008 Chevy Silverado
  • Unless you live in a very cold climate, you'll want to go with the largest transmission cooler that will fit in the space available. The most efficient place to install a cooler is directly behind the grille, in front of the radiator. If you have sufficient room in that area to accommodate the 11 x 12 inch size of the # D13504, that's what I'd recommend. If you needed a smaller cooler, go with the # D13502 which measures 11W x 7-1/4T. Using the # D13035 radiator fitting will make for a...

  • Best Transmission Cooler for a 2015 Subaru Outback 2.5 Liter with CVT Transmission
  • You can use transmission coolers on vehicles like your 2015 Subaru Outback that have automatic CVT transmissions. A supplemental cooler will help to prolong the life of the transmission by keeping the fluid in the optimum range of 160 to 200 degrees F. Coolers are not vehicle specific so you can use any one that will fit. There likely is not a lot of space under the hood for a large cooler so a smaller one such as # D13502 would be a good choice. It measures 11 inches wide, 7-1/4 inches...

  • Is a Transmission Cooler Thermostat Required for a 2011 Chevy Silverado in Texas
  • Based on where you live you would not need a thermostat for your transmission cooler. Your thinking is correct, the OEM transmission cooler that is in your radiator will do a good job slightly warming up the fluid on a very cold day. I live further north than you and I run my transmission cooler without a thermostat and have no problems at all. I attached a link to the right that has our return policy for you to check out as well.

  • Will Transmission Cooler Resolve Mixed Coolant Issues On A 2005 Nissan Frontier
  • Any of the transmission coolers we sell are designed more as a supplemental cooler that is meant to augment the factory transmission cooler portion of the radiator, not replace it entirely. If you are having the common problem with the radiator leaking causing the engine coolant contaminating the transmission fluid, your best bet would be to have the original radiator replaced.

  • The method we use to determine the correct line to install a transmission cooler on is pretty simple. You want to install the cooler on the return line. To determine which line is the return line you will want to start with your truck totally cooled off. Start the truck and put it in drive, apply the brakes firmly and then apply the accelerator slightly so that the rpms climb. Put the truck back in park and shut it off. Now go out and feel the two lines leaving the radiator. The cooler...

  • How To Pick Out a Transmission Cooler for a 2008 Ford F-150
  • If you can fit a bigger transmission cooler than the part # D13502 then I would recommend you do that. Realistically, you can't go too big when it comes to transmission coolers. The biggest one you can fit will be your best option. The part # D13502 measures 11" Wide x 7-1/4" tall x 7/8" deep. If that's the biggest you can fit then I'd go with this one. Otherwise I'd look into a bigger one like the part # D13504 that measures 11" Wide x 12" tall x 7/8" deep. I attached an install video...
