  • Locating Transmission Fluid Return Line on 1999 Acura TI

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.

  • 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...
