Transmission Coolers Questions and Answers

  • Can a Transmission Cooler Like Derale # D13101 Be Used to Cool Engine Oil
  • Engine fluid coolers are not vehicle-specific nor are they fluid-specific. Any given cooler could be used to cool power steering fluid, transmission fluid or engine oil. The factor to consider is the required fittings to install a cooler for a given application. Transmission, engine oil and power steering fittings vary. As long as you have the correct adapters/fittings to connect a cooler to its fluid circuit you could use just about any cooler to good effect to reduce the fluid's operating...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2008 Chevy Avalanche
  • When installing a transmission cooler on a vehicle like the # D13504 on your 2008 Chevy Avalanche you will want to route the fluid first through your factory transmission cooler and then finally through the supplemental cooler before it returns to the transmission. Factory coolers will actually raise (or lower) the transmission fluid to the same temperature as the engine coolant since the coolers are integrated into the radiator. If you were to route the supplemental cooler before the...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendations for 2013 Nissan Quest
  • I did some research on your 2013 Nissan Quest, and found that it has a CVT transmission, and the owner's manual states that the towing capacity is 3500 lbs. If your CVT transmission has lines that run from the transmission to the radiator (some do, some do not), you can install a transmission cooler. A transmission cooler is inexpensive insurance that will help extend the life of your transmission. The best way to pick out a transmission cooler is to measure the distance in front...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendations for a 1956 Buick Century
  • The heat sink coolers such as # D13266 are great if space is limited but they are not all that efficient. It would help some but if you need series cooling this is not the best option. I would instead go with a stacked plate cooler such as # D51008. It is small but very efficient. Or you could go with a plate fin style such as # D13503. We usually recommend using the largest cooler that will fit in the available space because transmission fluid cannot be overcooled. I have included a...

  • Should a Supplemental Transmission Cooler Bypass the Factory Cooler on a 1989 Nissan Pathfinder
  • If coolant is leaking from any part that has to do with the transmission then you will need to have that taken care of immediately. Coolant getting into the transmission will cause it to fail and transmissions are not cheap to replace. There also seems to be some issues with the Nissan radiators because we hear about leaks often. The best solution for a leaky radiator core is to have the radiator replaced. The coolers we offer are designed as supplemental coolers and not to replace a...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder
  • Usually the best way to pick out a transmission cooler is to measure the available space in front of the radiator and go with the biggest one that will fit that area. Even though you won't be towing this would still be the best method to use since you plan to bypass your factory cooler. The Derale Cooler part # D13503 would be an excellent choice that measures 11" wide x 8-3/4" tall x 7/8" deep. I attached an install video plus an FAQ article on transmission coolers for you to check...

Transmission coolers are not vehicle specific so you can use any one of them that fits in the available space in the engine compartment. Since transmission fluid cannot be cooled too much I recommend going with the largest one that will fit for the most efficiency and cooling power. Cooler # D13504 is one of the larger options measuring 11 inches wide, 12 inches tall, and 7/8 inches deep. I...

  • Will Aftermarket Radiator Solve Leaking Transmission Cooler Problems in 2006 Nissan Xterra
  • From what I can recall, the problem with the mid 2000's Nissan truck radiators was that the combined transmission cooler/radiator would develop a leak that allowed coolant to mix with the transmission fluid, which damaged the transmission. Installing an 'OEM quality' aftermarket radiator with the integrated transmission cooler is the recommended repair, which will solve the leakage problem. Over the years, we've gotten numerous questions about this from folks who just want to cap...

  • Can a 2009 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Tow a 32 Foot Travel Trailer
  • In order to determine if your 2009 Chevy Silverado 2500HD can tow your 32 foot travel trailer you will first need to determine the loaded weight of the trailer you plan on towing and then check the owners manual of the truck to determine if it has the needed capacity to tow a trailer that heavy. You said it's not a fifth wheel trailer. So that would indicate that it's either a gooseneck trailer or a bumper pull trailer. Since travel trailers aren't usually gooseneck this would make me...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 1998 Buick Century
  • TOC stands for transmission oil cooler. If the fittings are the same then the 2001's transmission cooler would still work on your 1998, but if not then you would just want to bypass the factory cooler with something like the # D13504 that you referenced. A supplemental cooler is a better choice than a factory cooler since the factory coolers actually will heat the fluid up to the same temperature as the radiator fluid. So either way I would recommend the # D13504 over using the factory...

  • Are Supplemental Transmission Coolers Recommended for a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder
  • It is very possible that the previous owner of your 2007 Nissan Pathfinder installed a supplemental transmission cooler on your vehicle as this is a very popular upgrade to prolong the life of the transmission. The factory one is integrated with the radiator so having a second external one would indicate that one was installed. Some argue that you can't cool transmission fluid too much so having a second one wouldn't be pointless. Especially since your factory one is currently bypassed...

  • How to Prevent 2008 Silverado's Allison A1000 Transmission from Overheating when Pulling Trailer
  • 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. In this situation, there is an extended capacity transmission pan available from aFe, part # AFE46-70072. The replacement pan has up to 4 quarts additional capacity, and features integrated fins for increased surface area to disperse heat. The pan also has a 1/8 inch NPT port that...

  • Transmission coolers are designed to be a supplement to your cooling system and are not designed to replace a system that may be faulty or damaged. You said you have a leak and if a transmission cooler is needed on your 2001 Dodge Ram Pickup. Since some of the cooling systems on Ram pickups vary due to engine size and how the vehicle was built, you will want to make sure your system is working properly before adding a transmission cooler.

  • Transmission Cooler for 2006 Nissan Frontier With Leaking Radiator
  • You are indeed correct that there have been issues with the OEM transmission cooler inside the radiators of many Nissan vehicles. When these fail the result is coolant contaminating the transmission. Recently Nissan has extended the factory warranties on radiators in 2005 - 2010 Frontier, Pathfinder and Xterra models. You might want to contact your Nissan dealer for details. Your best option may be to have the original radiator replaced under warranty by Nissan. The coolers we offer...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 1999 Chevy Express Van
  • If the factory cooler has been bypassed for several years now I would not recommend you try to use it again at this point. It could have been leaking and that is why it was replaced. Also because now there could be corrosion or dirt on the inside of the cooler that you wouldn't want running through your transmission. The lines of the current transmission cooler could be the reason for the leak. I know on my car I had to tighten one of the hose clamps at one point because it was leaking...
