Perhaps the simplest type of heat exchanger, the tube-fin effectively cools a variety of automotive systems. The concept is simple: Fluid cools as it travels through the core by transferring heat out to the fins. The fins then provide the surface area necessary for sufficient heat exchange to take place, allowing the heat pulled from the fluid to dissipate into the surrounding air. The result is longer-lasting oil and a better-functioning engine.

The sandwich adapter in this kit provides the external oil lines necessary to install a cooler without requiring you to move the factory spin-on oil filter, making it even easier to extend the life of your vehicle's engine. In addition, the thermostatic bypass feature allows oil cooler than 180 degrees to bypass the heat exchanger, so your engine will warm up faster.

Video Transcript for Derale Engine Oil Coolers - Tube-Fin Cooler - D15502 Review

Today, we're going to review part number D15502. This is the Derale tube fin engine oil cooler kit with the sandwich adapter. This part will include everything shown here on the table. It includes this tube and fin oil cooler. It included the sandwich adapter with the o-ring. It includes 10 feet of high-temperature, high-pressure rubber hose with the stainless steel clamps. It includes the 2 hose barb fittings, the zip ties.

It also includes this bag of mounting rods with the foam pads and clips. This is what will allow you to attach this to either your air conditioning condenser or your radiator on your vehicle. It'll also have these multiple sleeve nuts. These sleeve nuts will ensure you get the proper thread size when you install the sandwich adapter to your vehicle. This tube fin cooler will effectively cool a variety of automotive systems. The fluid cools as it travels through this core by transferring the heat out to the fins right here.

These fins then provide the surface area necessary for the sufficient heat exchange to take place, allows the heat to be pulled from the fluid to dissipate into the surrounding air. This cooler can reduce your oil temperature by as much as 50 degrees. The result is you get longer lasting oil, better functioning engine, and lots of time even less oil changes. The sandwich adapter will screw on in place of . You take your spin-on oil filter off, put this in, and then put your filter on the bottom of this. This will provide the external oil lines, which are necessary to install a cooler without requiring you to move the factory spin-on oil filter. It makes it easier to extend the life of your vehicle's engine. In addition, on the sandwich adapter on the very bottom as you can see right here, there is a thermostatic bypass feature, and this will allow the oil, which is cooler than 180 degrees, to bypass this heat exchanger.

No reason to cool it if it's already cool. This will allow you engine to warm up faster. Basically, these multiple sleeve nuts here that I have, you can see they have different color dots because they're all different threads. Basically what you would do, you would take off your oil filter on your car and spin it off, and then, you'll put this in between your oil filter and your car. Basically, this oil ring would seal it up against the car. What you do is find the correct thread of these sleeve nuts that'll fit your vehicle, and then, what you'll do is go ahead and push this up against where your oil filter came off, put this on with the threads right here, you'll tighten it down to hold the sandwich adapter into place, and then, your oil filter would just screw onto this. Then, you would run your hose lines using these barbs right out of here, the cooler lines. Basically, the heat exchanger right here ...

I'll give you some dimensions on it. The overall width from very end to very end is going to be about 16-5/8". The height on it is going to be about 7-5/8". The depth of it is going to be right at 3/4". Now, the distance between these inlets right here, . You can use either one as an inlet or an outlet. It doesn't matter. The distance between those center to center is going to be right at 6-1/4". Just the core itself, if you want to know the width of just the core, is going to be 13-7/8". This sandwich adapter right here, it does add about a thickness of about 1-3/4". You do want to make sure you'll have room so your oil filter will move down about 1-3/4". You want to make sure you have clearance for that. Now, it does fit vehicles with an engine-block oil filter landing. Another words, the diameter is 2-3/4", and that pretty much is about 60% of the vehicles out there. On these multiple sleeve nuts, it does include all 5 of these, and they'll give you a range of 3/4" x 16-thread, 13/16" x 16, 18 mm, 20 mm, and 22 mm. That should do it for the review on part number D15502, the Derale tube fin engine oil cooler kit with the sandwich adapter. .

Installed this product on my 2013 Ram 5.7 Hemi. Install was simple and straight forward. I hoped there would be improvements in the operating temperature of my engine oil, which there was. Now towing my trailer is no worry about engine oil temp. This cooler works exactly as advertised, and the temp never go above 220. An unexpected result was better gas mileage by almost 2 additional miles per gallon. Also the truck runs much quieter than before and smoother. This noticed by my wife who rides with me always. So I would defiantly call this a win win install and purchase. 263035


Comments

This upgrade to my Ram has paid for itself after one year of use by extending the oil life thus reducing oil change interval

I purchased this kit 1 year ago for an 08 Toyota Highlander V6 Sport. The vehicle had a small (and I mean small) trans cooler already installed with the sport, but adding this additional cooler gives us the piece of mind an confidence that when either towing or evening just sitting in temps up to 116F at the drive through in SoCal during summer hours, my family will stay cool. The fans run less and the whole vehicle runs a bit cooler as well. I have verified this with 3rd party OBD readers, actively watching oil temps both at normal operating temps, hill climbs, towing, and when sitting in extreme heat. IT DOESNT BUDGE! I dont have enough good things to say about this cooler. If youve ever thought about it, you should do it. Very easy to install and it flat out works. 266957

Do you have a question about this Engine Oil Cooler?


  • Recommendation on a Hitch, Wiring Harness, Transmission and Oil Cooler for a 2011 Ford Flex
  • I have a hitch that will work on your 2011 Ford Flex with single exhaust. The Draw-Tite Max Frame Class III Hitch, # 75679, is a custom-fit trailer hitch that is designed for the 2011 Ford Flex. The hitch has a 400 lbs tongue weight capacity and a 4000 lbs gross trailer weight capacity. I recommend this hitch over the Curt hitch, # 13551, because the Draw-Tite hitch has an easier installation than the Curt hitch on the 2011 Ford Flex. The Draw-Tite hitch uses a no drill installation...

  • Engine Oil Cooler Recommendation for 2014 Ford Flex SE 3.5 V6
  • The oil filter of your 2014 Ford Flex has a thread size of M22 x 1.5 so the part # D15502 would fit and work well since it comes with a thread adapter in that size. For a relocation kit that is designed for that size you would need the part # D15725.

  • The best engine oil cooler for your 1998 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 I6 will be the largest one you have space for in front of your radiator behind your grill as this will provide the cooler with the most airflow which will in turn create the best performance. You will want to measure this space prior to purchasing a cooler. If you have space, I recommend using the Derale Tube-Fin Engine Oil Cooler Kit w/ Sandwich Adapter part # D15502.

  • Engine Oil Cooler for a 2005 Toyota Tacoma with 4.0 Liter Motor
  • Yes, the Derale oil cooler # D15502 will fit your 2005 Toyota Tacoma with the 4.0 liter motor. The filter mount on the motor uses the 3/4"-16 threads and the O-ring diameter is 2-3/4 inch so this kit comes with compatible parts. I have linked a video review of this cooler for you.

I did some checking and the oil filter threads you would have on your van would be 22 mm x 1.5 mm which is a size that the Derale Cooler part # D15502 is compatible with. You can also look into running distilled water in your radiator during the summer months this will also drastically reduce coolant temperatures.

  • Which Derale Engine Oil Cooler for 2007 Chevy Uplander with 3.9L Engine
  • According to my research, the 3.9L engine in your Uplander has 13/16-16 oil filter threads, and the oil filter uses a 2-3/4 inch diameter gasket. To determine which oil cooler is appropriate for your vehicle, simply match up the filter thread and gasket size to that of the cooler kit. The # D15502 kit you mentioned is compatible with a 13/16-16 engine filter thread size and a 2-3/4 inch diameter gasket, per the product description and therefore would be the correct cooler for your vehicle....

As long you have sufficient room directly behind the grille and in front of the radiator to accommodate the 16-5/8 x 7-5/8 size of the cooler itself, and you will still be able to remove the oil filter once it is moved 1-3/4 inches further away from the engine block (to accommodate thickness of sandwich adapter), the Cooler Kit will...

  • Engine Oil Cooler with Thermostat for a 2006 Toyota Tacoma with V6 Motor
  • First you would need an engine oil cooler kit. I recommend # D15502 because it comes with multiple thread types and has the proper O-ring size for a V-6 Toyota motor. The sandwich adapter included is thermostatic so a separate thermostat is not required. Oil that is cooler than 180 degrees will bypass the heat exchanger, so your engine will warm up faster. You may need some extra hose like # D15700 for 10 feet. And for hose clamps use # D13008. I have included a couple of links to...

The Derale Tube-Fin Engine Oil Cooler Kit part # D15502 is an excellent choice for your 2013 Ford Explorer. The kit comes with 5 different oil filter thread adapters. For your Explorer you will want to use the 3/4"-16 adapter with the yellow paint marking if you have the 2.0L I4 engine or the 22x1.5" adapter with the green paint marking if you have the 3.5L V6 engine.

The O-ring diameter of your filter will better match the adapter of this kit, this kit also has the thread adapter you need 22mm x 1.5mm and the cooler style of this kit is more efficient as it is a plate-fin style, whereas the # D15502 is a tube-fin style that has an o-ring adapter that would be too small.
