I have a 99 Ford F250 4WD 7.3 diesel with 191,000 miles. I am on my 4th transmission. I pull a horse trailer once a year to Colorado or Wyoming from E Texas on an elk hunt. Other than that, maybe a camper or horse trailer hauled to my deer lease 100 miles away. I finally added a temp gauge to the last one. Now I was seeing that my tranny was running around 205 just pulling my trailers up a small grade around my county. Outside temp around 90. I replaced the original Ford cooler with one from Ford. Same results. I did research on my own and stumbled on to Etrailer.com and articles of the Derale 8000. I had this put on by my radiator man. He wanted to mount it above the Ford cooler to get max airflow. He had to fabricate some brackets and use some other hose connectors as the ones furnished didn't fit right. Not a problem for me as this thing has finally solved my problems. I ran the same route with my horses loaded in the trailer(est 6000# total wt). The temp gauge registered 170 to 175. That is a drop of 30 to 35 degrees. I now feel confident when I go to Colorado in a few weeks that I won't be broke down on side of road with overheated tranny and buying another tranny when I return. Etrailer shipped product very fast. I am overly happy regardless of it not just fitting perfect. 283042

I installed the Derale D13503 in series with my existing factory installed auxillary cooler for added protection on my Ford Explorer Sport Trac. With the Sport Trac tranny having the reputation for overheating failure, I took the cooling up a notch! I tow a 7X14 enclosed v-nosed trailer, and now I am protected! It was a very easy install, and the included hardware made it pain-free :-) 33186

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Comparing the Derale 7000 and 8000 Series Coolers for a 2000 F-250 with the 7.3L V8 Diesel Engine
  • The Derale Series 7000 Transmission Cooler Kits like part # D13105 has a tube-fin design whereas the Derale Series 8000 Transmission Cooler Kits like part # D13503 has a plate-fin design. The plate-fin design is superior to the tube-fin design in that it has internal turbulators to help the oil cool faster and prevent pressure loss. For your 2000 Ford F-250 with the 7.3L V8 Diesel Engine, I recommend using the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit part # D13504 which...

  • Automatic Transmission Cooler and Fittings for a 2006 Ford F-150
  • For transmission cooler fittings the 6 or 10AN you see listed on coolers such as # D52506 does not make a whole lot of difference because you would want to look at complete cooler kits rather than just a replacement core. The fittings included with the cooler are already a match for it and for the hose that comes with the kits. I recommend cooler kit # D13504. It comes with a large plate-fin cooler, the means to mount it, some hose, and hose clamps. In order to install the cooler without...

  • Best Towing Enhancements for a 2013 Ford F-150 with 5.0L V8 Engine
  • If you are looking for performance enhancements, I recommend using the Edge EvoHT2 Hand-Held Performance Tuner part # EP16040. This tuner can provide you with a boost in horsepower up to 24 HP and torque up to 24 TQ. The towing tune built into the device will adjust shift points for prolonged transmission life and maximize fuel pressure for increase fuel economy. If you are looking for suspension enhancements, I recommend taking a look at the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs part...

  • How Difficult is it to Install a Transmission Cooler on a 2012 Ford F-150
  • Transmission coolers are fairly simple to install requiring just a bit of mechanical aptitude and some basic tools. If I had to rate the process on a scale from 1 to 10 with 1 being easy and 10 being hard, I would have to say about a 5. I have attached an install video for you. The process to install the cooler will not be the same as the attached video for your truck but very similar as the process will only differ slightly. As long as you have 11" wide x 12" tall x 7/8" deep of space...

  • Does Transmission Cooler Install for 2004 Ford F-150 Require Hose Fittings
  • You will want to use the hose fittings part # D13024 and # D13025 when installing the transmission cooler part # D12903 on your 2004 Ford F-150. They will make the process much easier and allow you to not have to cut and flare any hard lines.

  • Transmission Cooler for 2000 Ford F-250 Towing Heavy 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Any fluid leaking from a vehicle is a warning. Often this indicates excessive temperatures in your transmission. If your transmission is stressed to the point of leaking fluid this means that somewhere either a seal, hose or other fitting is being pushed past its limit. My first suggestion is that you try to find that leakage point so you can check whether you have a bad seal or fitting that can be replaced. Driving your truck, let alone towing a trailer with it, with an inadequate trans...

  • Hose Size and Fittings to Install a Transmission Cooler on a 2010 Ford F-150 4.6 Liter
  • The type of fitting to use will depend on the thread type used on the transmission line fittings on your 2010 Ford F-150. If they are 1/2"-20 threads use kit # D13024. If they are 5/8"-18 use # D13025. If you can measure the diameter of the threaded part of a fitting on your truck that will tell us which one is correct. If you are getting a kit such as # D13504 then the proper size hose is included. The standard hose is 11/32 inches inner diameter.

  • Transmission Cooler Fit for a 1999 Ford Super Duty Towing a 36 ft Toy Hauler
  • When it comes to transmission coolers you will want to choose the largest and most efficient cooler that you have room for in your engine compartment. As long as you have room to install a Derale Atomic-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler, then it will work with your truck. These would be very good coolers for your application because they are high efficiency coolers with 500-CFM tornado fans. You will want to choose the correct transmission cooler for your vehicle based on the size of...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2004 Ford F-150 with 5.4 liter V8
  • For your 2004 Ford F-150 with a 5.4 liter engine the Derale transmission cooler part # D13503 would be a great option. You'd also need the fittings part # D13024 and # D13025 and you'd be set in that regard as well.

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler for 1999 Ford F-350 with 7.3L V8 Engine
  • Thank you for the photo of your sturdy F-350 that is in need of a little TLC in the form of a transmission cooler to help it when pulling those heavy loads. For your heavy-duty application you'll want a high-efficiency cooler that will give your transmission the most temperature reduction possible. This means using the largest Class IV cooler that you can fit in the area in front of the radiator and A/C condenser (if present). The cooler I recommend is the Derale # D13105 that you referenced....

  • Recommended Brake Controller and Transmission Cooler for 2004 Ford Expedition 5.4L 4×4 for Towing
  • The best way to go for steep climbs and down hills is to have a good brake controller for the descent so you can use the manual adjuster as needed to apply brakes to only the trailer and the brake pedal to use brakes for both vehicle and trailer. I recommend a proportional brake controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195. You will want to make sure you don't overheat your brakes by using them too often, but still use them as needed to maintain control. For the up hill climbs,...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 1999 Ford F-150 with 5.4 liter V8
  • For towing a trailer like what you mentioned with a 1999 Ford F-150 a supplemental transmission cooler would be a great option that we would highly recommend. Most likely your truck came with a factory cooler but typically they do not do a very good job at all. Especially around the age of your truck. The newer vehicles have better coolers but the older ones are adequate at best for light duty applications. I'd recommend the part # D13503 as this is a very popular and efficient cooler...

  • Transmission Cooler Routing Recommendation on a 2002 Ford Super Duty Truck
  • Yes, you could use the Derale Radiator Adapter Fittings for Ford, part # D13025, to allow you to use Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit, part # D13504, with the factory cooler that is on your 2002 Ford Super Duty truck. You would want to route the Derale cooler after the factory cooler. By that I mean you would want to run the transmission coolant line from the transmission, to the factory cooler, then to the # 23785, and finally back to the transmission cooler. Routing...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2003 Ford Expedition
  • Installing a supplemental transmission cooler in your 2003 Ford Expedition would be an excellent idea since it will prolong the life of the transmission. The way to pick out one is to go with the largest cooler that will fit the available space in front of the radiator/AC. The part # D13503 is a very popular choice that would work well for you. The correct fittings you would want are the part # D13025. This will thread into your radiator and onto the metal line so that you don't have...

  • 1/2 Inch Hose Barb Fitting to Install Transmission Cooler on a 2005 Ford Expedition
  • We have a 1/2 inch compression fitting to go from 1/2 inch line to 1/2 inch NPT barb # D13033. I would actually have the flow go from the transmission, to the factory cooler in the radiator, then from there to the other cooler, and then to the Derale cooler before going back to the transmission. This is the normal way to install a supplemental cooler (at the end of the line). The fitting we have listed for the 2005 Ford Expedition is # D13025 which are 5/8 inch inverted flare fittings.

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler For 3/8 Inch Hoses on 2002 Ford Excursion 6.8L
  • For your 2002 Ford Excursion 6.8, I recommend the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit w/Barb Inlets # D13503. This cooler has turbulators inside tubes for superior heat transfer. The included mounts attach the cooler to one of your other heat exchangers, but some people prefer to create a fixed mount using a mounting kit like # D13002. I recommend the Derale Radiator Adapter Fittings for Ford, Lincoln and Mercury # D13025 to easily install your new transmission cooler...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2005 Ford Explorer 4.0L
  • First, adding a transmission cooler will not increase the towing capacity of a vehicle unless the manufacturer states that by adding one the towing capacity can be maximized. According to the owners manual, if you have the towing package with 3.73 LS rear axle ratio, you can tow up to 5,760 pounds. With 3.55 rear axle ratio the max is 3,240 pounds. If your model has the higher rear axle ratio and came with a tow package, you can tow up to 5,760 pounds. A transmission cooler is recommended....

  • Will Derale 8000 Transmission Cooler, # D13504, Fit A Ford F350 7.3L Diesel With Factory Cooler
  • The best location for the Derale Series 8000 Transmission Cooler Kit, # D13504, on your Ford F350 7.3L Diesel would be between your vehicle grille and the air conditioning condenser. This location will give you the most airflow and allow the maximum cooling ability of the heat exchanger. You will want to measure to make sure you have clearance to install the heat exchanger. The heat exchanger measures 11 inches wide x 12 inches tall x 7/8 inch deep. The Derale Series 8000 Transmission...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendations for a 2002 F-350 with the 7.3L Diesel
  • Transmission fluid should run below 200 degrees Fahrenheit. At 240 degrees you definitely need to make some sort of change to reduce the temperature. I would first recommend having the transmission checked by a qualified automotive technician to be sure it is performing properly. This will assure you that no damage has been caused to the transmission and you will not be stranded. Installing a transmission cooler will not reverse any damage that may have already been caused. If you find...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation For 2013 Ford F-150
  • When it comes to transmission coolers, you will want to use the largest cooler that will fit in the space in front of the radiator. Of the three styles of transmission coolers, stacked plate coolers are the most efficient. If you have the room, I recommend a cooler like the Derale Stacked-Plate Transmission Cooler # D13402. This cooler measures 13 inches wide x 6-7/16 inches tall x 2 inches deep. Included in the kit is the necessary hardware to install the cooler. Though it will also...

  • You can certainly use the Derale 24 Inch Frame Rail Fluid Cooler, # D13225, for your 1999 Ford F-250. You would also need Derale Radiator Adapter Fittings, # D13025, for the 7.3 liter Powerstroke. Any transmission cooler will could essentially be considered a remote mount application. I have included a link to the coolers recommended for your truck and engine. I have also included a link to our transmission cooler FAQ article and a video showing a typical installation.

  • Can I tow a 30 ft Dutchmen Travel Trailer with a 2003 Ford Explorer
  • To determine if you can tow your 30 ft Dutchmen travel trailer with your 2003 Ford Explorer, you will want to find the towing capacity of your Explorer and compare that to the loaded and ready to tow weight of your trailer. I did some research on your Explorer and found that the Explorer will have different maximum tow ratings depending on how it is equipped. For 2WD models, if you have the 4.0L SOHC engine without a tow package, then the maximum towing capacity of your Explorer...

  • You are on the right track, installing a supplemental transmission cooler to go along with the factory cooler to maximize the cooling of the transmission fluid is a great idea to prolong the life of your transmission. The Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit # D13504 would work great. To make installation easier on your 2006 Ford F-150 you would also want the Derale Radiator Adapter Fittings # D13025. This will thread into the radiator and on the outlet line to provide...

  • Transmission Cooler and Adapter Fitting for 2012 Ford Expedition
  • You have to measure inside diameter. In most cases the two sizes are 3/8 and 5/16 inch especially on a vehicle like yours. Instead of using those adapters though we have the part # D13025 which will fit in place of the fittings on your radiator to connect to the cooler lines of a cooler like the part # D13503 which would work great. The hose that comes with this is 5/16 inch.

  • Recommendation For Transmission Cooling on 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty With 6.8 Engine
  • I would recommend to add an aftermarket transmission cooler to your 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty to prevent any damage to your transmission. The ideal operating temperature range of your transmission fluid should be 160 to 200 degrees. Adding the cooler will not bypass the existing factory cooler which is located inside the radiator. Adding a cooler provides supplemental cooling to the your factory cooler. Transmission coolers are universal fit items. What you will need to do is find...

  • Does Installing Transmission Cooler on 2003 Ford Expedition Require Special Fittings
  • For some vehicles we do have fitting adapters that thread into the radiator so that you'll have a barb fitting for the lines of the transmission cooler to attach to. We do not have any for your 2003 Ford Expedition though. Check out the install video I attached for the Derale part # D13503 on a very similar 2001 Ford Explorer and you'll see how we installed it without needing the adapters.

  • Recommendation for a Supplemental Transmission Cooler for a 2007 Ford F-150 with 5.4 Liter Engine
  • Based on the information you have provided, which I greatly appreciate, a standard supplemental cooler should be sufficient for your needs. Ideally you want the transmission temperature to be no more than 200 degrees F. Mounting a larger cooler directly behind the grille (in front of everything else) such as # D13504 should get you to the ideal range. You will also want fitting # D13025 so you will not have to cut and flare any lines. A remote cooler with its own fan will provide the...

  • Can a Derale Transmission Cooler Fit Inline With Factory Cooler on 2000 Ford F-250
  • The Derale Series 7000 Transmission Cooler, part # D13105, that you have referenced is a tube-fin design cooler and is a top rated transmission cooler. This Derale transmission cooler will fit inline with your factory transmission cooler. You will want to route the transmission fluid through the factory cooler first, and then through the # D13105 cooler, and finally back to your transmission. So the Derale cooler will be added after the factory transmission cooler in the radiator....

  • Transmission Cooler Recommend For a 2002 Ford F-250 XLT Super Duty 6.8L V10
  • When installing a transmission cooler, it is always a good idea to install the largest cooler that will fit in the space available on your truck. Transmission fluid cannot be over-cooled, however, if you live in a typically cold climate, it is a good idea to let your vehicle run for 10 minutes before taking off. For your 2002 Ford F-250 XLT Super Duty, going with the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Cooler, # D13504, that you referenced would my recommendation. It is recommended to install...
