  • 2011 FJ Cruiser Transmission Cooler Recommendation

That is usually adequate for most vehicles, but on a larger SUV like your 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser a long hose like part # D13017 could be needed. In most cases the line needed can be pretty short since typically the fittings and lines that get removed and used are all right near the radiator.

  • Troubleshooting Radiator Leak in my 2001 Ford Explorer Sport 4.0
  • It's tough to pinpoint an exact leak in your radiator, but it could be the fluid return line. If anything, it may be leaking in the radiator. The factory cooler is inside the radiator. Transmission coolers such as # D13503 will not be inside a radiator. They attach in-line with the transmission fluid return line. The usual spot a supplemental transmission cooler is mounted to is in front of the AC condenser or at least in between the air conditioning condenser and the radiator itself....

  • Does Adding a 5th Wheel Change 2007 Toyota Tundra Towing Capacity

The rule is that you always go by the lowest rated component in the system. You can find the towing capacity of your Tundra by taking a look at the sticker or plate in the door jamb of the driver's side front door. Look for the Gross Combined Weight Rating, GCWR. From this figure, subtract the GVW (vehicle curb weight plus weight of...

  • Which Transmission Line is Return Line on 2000 Jeep Cherokee with 4.0L Engine

Some say the line that enters the top of the radiator is the return, and others say the one that enters at the bottom. Everybody seems to agree that you should trace both lines to the transmission. The line that leaves at the rear of the transmission is the return line, the line that exits the transmission at the front is the supply line. You'll just have to trace them to the radiator to see...

Another added benefit is that you can mount the cooler away from the radiator if you want so that it doesn't affect the cooling ability of your radiator. We haven't had the chance to...

  • 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.

  • Best Transmission Cooler Options for 2008 Chevy Silverado

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...
