Transmission Cooler Installation - 2009 Honda CR-V

Today on our 2009 Honda CRV, we're going to install part number D13502 from Derale. This is their transmission cooler. To start off, we're going to have to remove the front bumper fixture and grill to get access to the condenser for the AC. This is where the transmission cooler will attach to. We'll go ahead and open up the hood and there's a small panel on top with a number of fasteners and pop rivets that we can remove to take off the top panel. Now we'll move to the driver's side, and there will be two screws in the fender well, plus one more plastic rivet on the inside edge of the fender well that we have to remove.

Honda CR-V Transmission Coolers Questions and Answers

  • Transmission Cooler for a 2006 Honda CRV
  • To know for sure if a transmission cooler will fit by your radiator, you will want to take a look at the space around your radiator and measure the available space. The measurements of the coolers are all listed on-line, so you will just want to cross-reference the measurements to ensure fit. Transmission coolers will work best when they are matched to the weight of the trailer the car is towing. The High Performance Class III Transmission Cooler, part # D13503 is made for trailers towing...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2008 Honda CRV
  • I would recommend the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit, item # D13502, for your vehicle and the towing that you will be doing. We have a video of the installation (see link) on a 2006 model CR-V and it is a rather simple install once you get the front fascia out of the way.

  • Is a Transmission Cooler Needed and Do I Need Additional Fluid
  • You are correct on both accounts, a transmission cooler would be recommended for your towing situation, and you would also need to add enough transmission fluid to fill both the new transmission cooler and any lines associated with it. Transmission fluid can not be over cooled, but it is critical in extreme cold conditions to allow the vehicle to warm up before driving. Thank you for supplying information regarding your trailer weight and your vehicle towing capacity please also check...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 1997 Honda CRV with Best Cooling and Ease of Installation
  • I would recommend the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit, item # D13502, for your 1997 Honda CRV. This cooler will be more than adequate for towing the weights you will be towing. You can not cool transmission fluid too much so the larger the cooler is, the better. We have a video installation of this cooler on a 2006 Honda CR-V that will be very similar to the installation on your 1997 model, see link. If you would like a smaller cooler you could go with the Derale...

  • Towing Capacity and Transmission Cooler Installation on a 1999 Honda CR-V
  • I was able to find on the Honda website the specs for your 1999 Honda CR-V. The towing capacity is listed as 1000-lbs. Transmission coolers come in a variety of types and sizes. These items are not vehicle-specific, so you can install the largest cooler for which you have space to mount it. The best location within the engine compartment is in front of the air conditioner condenser as this placement provides maximum air flow and hence best cooling. I have linked two articles that provide...

  • Is a Transmission Cooler Necessary on a 2011 Honda CR-V
  • According to my research, the towing capacity of the 2011 CR-V is 1500 lbs. It appears that at most, you will not exceed 2/3 of this capacity, even when you are towing your heavier trailer. Even though you have plenty of remaining capacity, and even with the OEM cooler (probably incorporated into the radiator), a transmission cooler is really inexpensive insurance for your transmission. A supplemental cooler will do an excellent job of providing extra protection to your transmission,...

  • Can a Transmission Cooler Be Installed on a 2013 Honda CR-V with CVT Transmission
  • I have not heard any issues with the 2013 Honda CR-V so there must be some path the fluid takes from the transmission to the factory cooler (usually located inside the radiator). However if your CR-V has the CVT transmission and there are no lines running to it then the shops you talked to would be correct. If you have the regular automatic transmission then you can install a cooler like # D13503 and the installation will be like in the video I have linked.

  • How to Determine the Return Line for Transmission Cooler Installation on a 2013 Honda CRV
  • The easiest way to determine the correct line to use for a transmission cooler install is to first start with the vehicle being cold. So letting it sit overnight or a few hours should do the trick. Next you will want to start the vehicle, put it in drive for about 10 seconds, put it back in park, turn the vehicle off and identify oil return line by feeling both lines, the cooler of the two is the return line and the line you should install your cooler on.
