Parts came in the expected time frame. Package in a way to not have damaged parts. 281845

- D13009

Drilled the pan and installed per instructions. Seems to work good with no leaks at install area. Wiring for light is a little flimsy or I would give better rating. 182304

Product was late arriving but as always good communication from etrailer rep's and quality is just as expected. 347458

  • Ways to Monitor Transmission Temp Dodge 2010 Ram 2500
    There are two methods of monitoring your transmission temperature of your 2010 Dodge Ram. The easiest way would be to use a performance monitor like # EP84030, which can be used to monitor up to 8 parameters at once. The monitor would be able to read your transmission temperature right out of the box with no other parts needed. The monitor can actually read dozens of different parameters directly from the vehicle's ECM. The unit simply plugs into the OBD connector under the dash. ...

  • How to Install Derale Transmission Temperature Gauge Kit # D13009
    The + sign on the right-hand terminal on the Derale Transmission Temperature Gauge # D13009 is for connection to an ignition-controlled 12V power source. The middle terminal connects to a chassis ground. Both connections require 18-gauge wire. The left-hand "S" terminal is for the sensor, as you noted, and its wire can be as long as needed (within reason!) to reach from the sensor to the gauge. The written installation instructions are linked at right for your reference.

  • Transmission Temperature Gauge for a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser That Doesnt Drill Into Pan
    If you are getting a trans warning light on your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser then that would be something more like low fluid or a leak and not necessarily the temperature. The Derale Temperature Gauge Kit # D13009 requires that a hole be drilled into the pan but the Derale Remote Transmission Filter Kit w/ Temperature Gauge # D13091 will help you avoid drilling into the pan since the temperature gauge installs on the remote mounting bracket. Either way, if you don't typically work on...

  • Ways to Monitor Transmission Temperature in a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500
    The absolute easiest way to monitor the transmission fluid temperature of your 2000 Dodge Ram is to use a monitor like the part # EP84130 which taps into the OBD-II signal to display the temperature. Otherwise you could use the part # D13009 as an analog gauge but it will require an install that is a bit more in-depth. I attached a picture that details how it will install.

  • What Does Derale Temperature Gauge Kit, # D13009 Include
    The Derale Temperature Gauge Kit, # D13009, comes with a mounting bracket and mounting hardware, a drain plug for transmission pan applications, and a temperature sensor. It has wiring leads in the back for the light inside but not to connect to the 3 terminal in the back. You can use wire # 10-1-1 which is sold by the foot. Enter the amount of feet you will need in the quantity box. You will need enough wire to reach from the gauge to a 12 volt switched ignition source, a suitable ground...

  • Wiring Instructions for Derale Temperature Gauge
    First you will want to connect an 18 gauge wire to the Temp Sender mounted on your vehicle. You will then route the wire through the firewall into the passenger compartment where the Temperature Gauge is mounted and attach the Temp Sender wire to the terminal marked (S) on the gauge. Then you will attach an 18 gauge wire to the terminal marked (-) on the gauge, and attach the other end of the wire with the black wire coming from the gauge light to a suitable chassis ground. Last,...

  • Where to Mount a Transmission Fluid Temperature Gauge in a 1999 Ford F250
    I would install it into the transmission pan of your 1999 Ford F250, you will have to remove your oil pan and drill a 1/2 inch hole into the transmission oil pan and use the supplied jam nut, nylon washer and temp sender pan adapter to install the temperature sensor. Or if your radiator has a coolant port on your radiator, using the included non-stick tape to install the temperature sensor in the port. Check out the picture I attached to see how it all installs. For mounting the gauge...

  • Does the Derale Temperature Gauge Kit Include the Temperature Sender Adapter
    The Derale Temperature Gauge Kit, # D13009, includes the temperature sender adapter. I have attached a photo showing how the adapter and temperature sender will install on your oil pan. The adapter will insert into your transmission oil pan with the nylon washer and tightened to the pan with the jam nut. Once the adapter is installed, then temperature sender will thread into the adapter.

  • Which Side Of the Transmission Pan Does the Sensor for the Derale Temperature Gauge Kit Install On
    The temperature sender that is included with the Derale Temperature Gauge Kit for Transmission Oil part # D13009 can be installed on either the driver or passenger side of the transmission pan, this does not matter. However, the temperature sender needs to be clear of any exhaust and you will need to have room for the jamb nut and to fit a wrench on it so whichever side of the pan allows for this is what I recommend but it will function the same regardless. The Derale Temperature Gauge...

  • Wire Needed When Installing Derale Temperature Gauge Kit
    The wire is not included with the Derale Temperature Gauge Kit, # D13009. Per the installation instructions you can use 18 gauge wire to reach from the gauge where it is mounted to a 12 volt switched ignition source, a suitable ground location, and to the transmission fluid line. We do not offer 18 gauge wire but you could use 16 gauge wire like part # 16-1-1 and not have any problem. This is ordered by the foot on our website.

  • Oil Temp Sensor Recommendation
    What we have that could work for you would be the Derale Temperature Gauge Kit # D13009. This can be used with engine oil and would work well for you. You would want to remove your oil pan to install this. The picture I attached shows how just the temp sender would install.

  • Why Would Temperature Gauge of Derale Transmission Gauge # D13009 Peg to 300 Degrees
    The + sign on the right-hand terminal on the Derale Transmission Temperature Gauge # D13009 is for connection to an ignition-controlled 12V power source. The middle terminal connects to a chassis ground. Both connections require 18-gauge wire. The left-hand "S" terminal is for the sensor, as you noted, and its wire can be as long as needed (within reason!) to reach from the sensor to the gauge. Most likely you have the 12 volt or ground wire ran to the sensor terminal and it's causing the...

    Yes, the Derale Temperature Gauge Kit for Transmission or Engine Oil, part # D139009, would work with your Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler, part # D13504, on your 2003 Chevy Z71. The # D13009 is designed to be used on transmission or engine oil coolers so it would work well for you. I attached an FAQ article on transmission coolers below for you to check out also. You should note that in order to install this # D13009 you will either have to remove your oil pan and...

    To get a new sensor for your Derale transmission temperature gauge, you would want to use the Derale Temperature Gauge Kit for Transmission or Engine Oil # D13009. This kit comes equipped with the temperature sensor you need; there is not a stand alone replacement that we carry.

  • What are Options for Installing Derale Temperature Gauge Kit # D13009
    If the test port on the transmission of your 1999 Ford F-250 uses thread dimensions that are 1/8 NPT then the sensor of the # D13009 would fit and work well. In the instructions I attached this is basically the Option 2 set instructions listed. Option one is for drilling the pan to install the sensor.

  • Can the Derale Remote Oil Filter Mount Kit Be Used With An Engine Oil Temp Sensor
    In order to obtain an accurate reading of the vehicle's engine oil temperature you would need to pull this data while the oil is in the pan using a sensor such as the Derale Temperature Gauge Kit for Transmission or Engine Oil part # D13009. If you were to monitor the engine oil temperature before or after the filter then this would not give an entirely accurate figure as to the vehicle's true engine oil temperature. That said, if you still wanted to proceed then you can indeed use some...

  • Measuring Temperature of Transmission Fluid After Installing Aftermarket Cooler on 2011 Silverado
    I spoke with my contact at Derale about the lack of change in temperature you noticed on your 2011 Chevrolet Silverado. He confirmed that the factory transmission temperature sensor is located inside the transmission, where the fluid is the hottest. He said the effects of the aftermarket transmission cooler are not typically seen with the factory sensor, since the fluid quickly heats back up once inside the transmission. My contact at Derale also said that it is common to not notice a temperature...

  • Transmission Cooler Kit Recommendation for 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 5.3L Engine
    For your situation, the best, most-effective transmission cooler I can recommend for you is the Derale Atomic-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler Kit with Fan # D13950. You will also want to use the Derale Snap-In Radiator Adapter Fitting for GM # D13035, so you do not need to flare lines for installation. When driving in the city, easy and abundant air flow to the factory or aftermarket transmission cooler is not as available as when driving on a flat, open highway. The # D13950 cooler...

  • Monitoring Transmission Fluid Temperature on a 2008 Dodge Ram with 5.7 Liter Hemi
    I learned that on your Ram the computer monitors how long the fluid has been in use but I was unable to determine if it also reads the temperature of the fluid. You could go old school though and use a gauge, # D13009. I checked with Superchips about the Flashpaq F5 # SU3845 and they do not have a list of parameters it will monitor on your 2008 Dodge Ram with 5.7 liter Hemi. From what I could find this and other programmers can monitor the information that passes through the computer...

  • Transmission Fluid Temperature Gauge and Cooler Recommendation for a 2013 Dodge Caravan
    For a temperature gauge you could use to monitor the temperature of the transmission fluid in your 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan I would recommend the # D13009 for a mechanical gauge. This will require you to drill into the transmission pan to install the fitting and sending unit. I attached a picture that shows how it installs on a transmission fluid pan. For a transmission cooler to help reduce the temperature of the tranny fluid you could use the Derale Series 9000 Plate-Fin Transmission...

  • Can the Factory Transmission Cooler be Bypassed on a 2005 Chevy Tahoe
    If you choose to bypass the factory transmission cooler on your 2005 Chevy Tahoe then I recommend a large cooler that will fit and the most efficient design. If it were me I would go with cooler kit # D13614. It is rated ad a Class V, extra efficient, which would definitely work better than the factory cooler. Remember that you will need to plug the factory cooler inlet and outlet if you bypass it with this method. I have linked a video review of this cooler and a link to our help article...

  • What Transmission Cooler and Installation Kit for 1997 Ford F-350 7.3L V8 Power Stroke Diesel
    We have several options in transmission coolers for your 1997 F-350 7.3L V8 Power Stroke diesel and all can be seen on the link provided. Coolers are not vehicle-specific so you can use as large a cooler as you have space to mount it. The linked articles will give you plenty of useful guidance about placement that will guide your choice. If your truck uses 1/4-inch or 3/8-inch NPT trans-line type fittings you will need to use install kit # D13014; if it uses 1/2-inch-20 partial thread...

  • Will The Derale Combination Transmission and Engine Oil Cooler Part # D15902 Fit My 2011 Tacoma
    Transmission and engine coolers are universal in that the manufacturers do not test the fitment and performance on individual vehicles. To ensure a proper fitment on your 2011 Toyota Tacoma, you will need to measure the amount of space you have in front of the radiator/condenser free of obstructions. The current cooler you have selected in the Derale Combination Transmission and Engine Oil Cooler part # D15902 has dimensions of 17" wide x 12-1/2" tall x 3/4" deep. We have not had a chance...

  • Which Transission Cooler for My 2004 Chevy Express and Do You Have Transmission Temperature Gauges
    The Derale 8000 Series cooler, part # D13504, would be a good cooler to use for that trailer weight range. I do not see any reason why it would not fit your full-size van. Just to be sure, measure the area where you would want to install it to make sure you have enough room. The cooler measures 11 inches wide, 12 inches tall and 7/8 inch thick. The cooler attaches to your radiator and sits in front of it. There is a factory trans cooler, though very small, built into the radiator of...

  • 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...

  • How To Install The Derale Universal Drain Plug Kit for Transmission Pan Coolers # D13010
    The Derale Universal Drain Plug Kit for Transmission Pan Coolers, part # D13010, does not require any welding. It will replace your existing drain plug. It is installed on your transmission pan cooler by inserting the adapter, with the nylon washer installed, in to the hole on your transmission cooler. Then, it would be tightened down to the transmission pan with the jam nut. See the picture to the right that will show how it is installed. With the drain plug kit installed you can then...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2014 Kia Soul
    For your 2014 Kia Soul we have the Derale Transmission Cooler part # D13503 which is a fit and would work well for your vehicle. If you wanted a remote mount with a built in fan the part # FLX700032 like what you referenced would be what you'd want but this would be overkill so it would not be what I would recommend. For a transmission fluid gauge the easiest solution will be an Edge Insight Display part # EP84030 installs by plugging into the OBDII port under your dash and taps into the...

  • Will the Derale Transmission Pan # D14208 Fit on a 2003 Ford F-250 Super Duty V10
    The Derale Transmission Pan Cooler, # D14208, will fit your 2003 Ford F-250 Super Duty with the 6.8L V10 engine as long as it has the E4OD, 4R100, 5R110 or 5R110W transmission. If your truck has a different transmission, this pan will not fit. You will not need any additional parts to install this transmission pan. This pan includes the gasket and the drain plug and was designed to reuse the mounting hardware from your original transmission pan. Due to the added depth of this pan, you...

  • Transmission Cooler and Temperature Gauge Recommendations for a 1996 Ford F-250, F-350
    You will want to keep the factory transmission cooler and use the aftermarket one to supplement the cooling rather than just replace the factory cooler. The idea is that, working together, an aftermarket cooler and the factory cooler will be more efficient and cool the transmission fluid better than just one cooler working alone. We do have a handy analog gauge you can use to monitor the transmission fluid temperature. Take a look at the Derale Temperature Gauge Kit, # D13009. This gauge...

  • Recommended Combination Engine Oil and Transmission Cooler for 2011 Ford Explorer Limited
    The first thing you will want to check on your 2011 Ford Explorer is if it has a transmission fluid dip stick and a way for you to add fluid. On many newer vehicles, there is a special tool needed to even check or add fluid that the dealer has. If yours is like that then the cooler would have to be professionally installed. Derale combination cooler # D15902 is the one that I recommend. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation. It is on a different vehicle but...
