The best and most efficient place to install a cooler is directly behind the vehicle grille, in front of the radiator and A/C condenser. You'll want to choose the largest cooler that will fit in the space available. The cooler will tap into the return line from the radiator to the transmission, as shown in the help articles I've linked to. If you have th

  • Fluid coming out of the transmission dipstick tube is usually a sign of severe overheating. A transmission cooler will help a ton to prevent this from happening again, but you might take your truck to a transmission shop to make sure you didn't damage anything in your transmission as heat is the number one killer of transmissions. For your truck the most popular upgrade for a transmission cooler is to go to the 6.0 liter generation Powerstroke's transmission cooler. I wish we carried an after

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2005 Chevy Colorado
  • The best way to pick out a transmission cooler is to measure the amount of space you have in front of your radiator and pick out the largest cooler that would fit there. If you have room for it I would recommend you go with a Derale Transmision Cooler part # D13502. This cooler measures 11 inches wide by 7-1/4 inches tall by 7/8 inches deep.

The best way to pick out a transmission cooler is to measure the amount of space you have in front of your radiator and pick out the largest cooler that would fit there.

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2004 Nissan Frontier Flat Towing a 1997 Geo Tracker
  • The best way to pick out a transmission cooler is to check out the area in front of the radiator to determine how big of a transmission cooler would fit in the available space. The bigger the cooler you can fit the better. Especially since you plan on towing something as heavy as a vehicle. The Derale Transmission Cooler part # D13501 that you referenced is a smaller plate and fin cooler that would work decently, but I would go with a bigger one if you can fit it.

  • Installing Derale Class III Transmission Cooler # D13502 in 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan SE
  • We do not currently have a transmission cooler install video for the 2009 model year Grand Caravan. While some of the installation details for your 2009 may differ from those shown in the video on the 2007, overall the process will be the same. The 2007 and 2009 model years of the Dodge Grand Caravan are indeed different generations of the vehicle; the 2007 is the 4th generation and the 2009 is the 5th generation.

  • Which Line Going to the Radiator of a 2008 Chrysler Town and Country is the Supply Line
  • The best way to determine which transmission line is the high-pressure or supply line and which is the return line is to start the motor cold. Place the transmission in drive for 10 seconds and return it to park. Turn off the motor and feel both transmission lines where they exit the radiator. The cooler of the two lines will be your return line, the warmer line is your supply line. I have included a diagram of a typical transmission cooler installation. To see a typical install video, cli

  • Derale Transmission Pan Cooler # D14208 for 1996 Ford F250 w/ 7.3L Engine
  • According to my research, the 1996 F250 7.3l engine should have a E40D transmission. There are two different ways of confirming this. First, you can check the sticker on the driver's side door jamb. You will see the letters TR or TRANS, followed by a letter. If the letter is E, you have the E40D transmission. Secondly, you can check the number of bolts holding the transmission pan on. If there's 20 bolts, it's a E40D. The Derale # D14208 is indeed compatible with the E40D transmission.

  • Using OEM Lines to Install Aftermarket Transmission Cooler # D13502 in 2012 Jeep Liberty
  • The aftermarket coolers we offer for oil and transmission fluids are intended to serve as supplementary units to assist the factory devices, but they are not designed to replace them. You are certainly able to usefully add secondary cooling for your Liberty transmission by installing a supplementary cooler such as the high-efficiency Derale # D13502. Oil and transmission coolers are not truly vehicle-specific; you can install a cooler as large as the space you have available for one. The link

  • Supplementary Transmission Cooler for 2004 Silverado 1500 LT That Has a Factory External Cooler
  • It is possible that your 2004 Silverado 1500 has an external transmission cooler from the factory; it is also possible that the previous owner installed an aftermarket unit. Some auto makers place a tranny cooler inside the radiator. You can confirm that the unit you are seeing is indeed a stand-alone tranny cooler by following its lines back to the transmission case and you can certainly add on a second cooler for your transmission if you wish and this would indeed be a good idea for your upcom

  • Where is the Transmission Return Line on a 2005 Honda Pilot for a Transmission Cooler
  • The transmission return line on your 2005 Honda Pilot can be located between the frame crosstube and the drivers side support bracket (see photo).

I attached the video for you to check out. The installation should be almost identical on your 2005 Pilot.

  • Can a Supplemental Transmission Cooler be Installed on a 2007 GMC Sierra with Tow Package
  • Trucks like your 2007 GMC Sierra that have a factory tow package will normally have either an upgraded transmission cooler or one that is external from the radiator and is thus more efficient. If you do not have the type that is external then adding a supplemental cooler is still a good idea. Transmission fluid cannot be overcooled and keeping the fluid in the optimum operating range of 160 to 200 degrees F will help prolong the transmission life. The weight of the trailer is as much of a

  • Installation of Derale Combination Trans/Oil Cooler # D15902 on 2009 Honda Odyssey EX
  • Fluid coolers like the Derale Combination Trans/Oil Cooler # D15902 are not vehicle-specific so you can install as large a cooler as you have space available for it. This particular dual-core cooler measures 17-inches wide x 12-1/2-inches tall x 3/4-inch deep. You can check within your engine compartment to verify that there is enough space for the cooler itself and for the connected hoses; it is important that the oil lines not have to make sharp turns that could interfere with the flow of flui

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2009 Chrysler Town and Country with 4.0 Liter Motor
  • The first thing I would do, if you think something might be wrong with the transmission, is have it looked over by a qualified mechanic or technician at a dealer. Automatic transmissions are complicated and expensive to replace so catching something early is definitely better than replacing a transmission later. A transmission has lines that run from it to the radiator and from the radiator back to the transmission. There is a cooler inside the radiator. The factory coolers are adequate at be

  • Best Transmission Cooler for 2013 Ford F-150 Raptor Supercharged
  • If you are talking about replacing the factory cooler then I do not recommend that. I do recommend adding a supplemental cooler in line with the existing cooler though. Transmission fluid cannot be cooled too much so adding another cooler will provide better cooling that just swapping out one cooler for a larger one. Provided that you have the space available, you could install a bigger cooler to replace the one you have. Another option is to install a pan-cooler, # AFE46-70172, which fits

The A31TH is a 3-speed and its return line is the one on the top of the transmission. There is another 3-speed, A670, but I cannot find the information on which line is its return line.
