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.

Happy to find a system with the adapter. Mounted to my 4runner very easily. Not much confidence in the plastic mounting method will make something else. 41108


Ask the Experts about this Derale Engine Oil Coolers

Do you have a question about this Engine Oil Cooler?

  • Is Engine Oil of 230 Degrees Too Hot for Truck
  • Actually your engine oil temperature isn't bad at all. Ideally when a vehicle is warmed up the engine oil is between 230 and 260 degrees which yours being 230 is perfectly fine. Since engines are kept cool with coolant that does not directly cool the oil the engine oil can get warmer than the coolant. But since oil actually likes to be warmer this is perfectly fine! Also the thread sizes of the # D15505 you referenced are not compatible.

  • Oil Cooler Recommendation for a 2004 Ford Escape
  • I did some checking and it looks like the Derale Tube-Fin Engine Oil Cooler Kit w/ Adjustable Sandwich Adapter # D15505 will work on your 2004 Ford Escape. From the research I did the threads on the oil filter are 22 x 1.5 mm and the # D15505 comes with that size so it should work very well for you. I attached an FAQ article on oil coolers for you to check out also.

  • Recommendation on an Engine Oil Cooler on a 2008 Toyota Tacoma with 4.0 L V6
  • I have a solution for you for an engine oil cooler for your 2008 Toyota Tacoma. The Derale Tube-Fin Engine Cooler Kit w/ Adjustable Sandwich Adapter, # D15505, is a tube-fin cooler design that uses the sandwich adapter to connect to the oil filter base on the engine. The kit includes multiple filter sleeve nuts for multiple applications on different vehicles. For your 4.0L V6 on your Toyota, you will need to use the 3/4 inch -16 thread sleeve for your application. For a more higher...

  • Engine Oil Cooler Recommendation for a Pre-1980 Chevy 350 Small Block
  • The 1958-1980 Chevrolet oil filters had 13/16 inch-16 thread sizes and used a gasket that have a diameter of 3-1/2 inches. The Derale Tube-Fin Engine Oil Cooler Kit # D15505 that you referenced would be the correct choice for you since it has components that will fit both of those requirements.

  • Combination Transmission/Oil Cooler for 2010 Chevy Tahoe Towing Small TT from Arkansas to Alaska
  • The Derale combination transmission/engine oil cooler # D13302 would be an excellent choice for you, if you have the space available directly behind the grille to accommodate its 16-13/16" wide x 12-5/8" tall x 3/4" deep size. If you need something a bit smaller, you can go with the # D13222 which measures 12-13/16" wide x 10-1/4" tall x 3/4" deep. For the transmission cooler circuit, you'd need the # D13064 hardware kit and the # D13035 fitting. For the oil cooler circuit, you'd need...

  • Which Engine Oil Cooler Kit will Work on a Chevy 350 Crate Motor In a 1934 Ford
  • If your filter is the larger style GM filter you will need to use the Derale Tube-Fin Engine Oil Cooler Kit w/ Sandwich Adapter (Multiple Threads) - Class III, item # D15505, which includes the adapter for the larger filter.

  • Oil Cooler for Use on a Motorcycle
  • Engine oil gets much hotter than power steering fluid so a power steering cooler such as # D13310 would not do much of anything to cool the oil on a motorcycle. Additional parts would also be needed so I do not recommend it. For an oil cooler something such as # D15505 would work much better and actually cool the oil.

  • Adding an Engine Oil Cooler and a Power Steering Cooler to a 2007 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4.0L V6
  • Thanks for asking about a Power Steering Cooler and Engine Oil cooler for your 2007 Toyota 4Runner SR5 V6. Adding two more coolers is not going to present a cooling issue for your engine/radiator. The coolers allow air to flow through them and will not transfer enough heat to the air going through them to effect the cooling performance of the vehicle's radiator. Your engine oil filter has 3/4-16 threads. So you can determine the correct threads to use from the recommended kits below,...

  • Reducing Engine Oil Temperature Using Derale Tube-Fin Engine Oil Cooler Kit # 15505
  • Typically a system like the Derale Tube-Fin Engine Oil Cooler Kit, # D15505, is used on vehicles where high oil temperatures are a concern, like one that is towing during the summer months. The thermostatic adapter will allow oil that is cooler than 180 degrees to bypass the cooler. The temperature of the oil when it entered the cooler will vary depending on the outside temperatures, driving conditions, how the system is set up, etc. Allowing the oil to flow through the tubes cools...

  • How to Install a Derale Engine Oil Cooler, Part # D15505, in a 1970 to 1974 Hotrod
  • Engine oil coolers are not brand- or model-specific; you can install an oil cooler as large as the space you have available to mount one, which is generally in front of the radiator and/or air-conditioning condenser on vehicles so equipped. With coolers, larger is better. This particular kit is intended for vehicles with an engine block oil filter landing between 2-3/4 inches and 3-1/2 inches. If your vehicle oil filter landing falls outside this range you will need to select an alternate...

  • What Transmission Cooler Kit is Best for a 2001 Saturn L300
  • The D15505 is a bit larger than what a 2001 Saturn L300 would need or could fit. There are 5 recommended kits for your L300 based on the vehicle size and towing capacity. I have added a link to them below. Transmission kits are not vehicle specific. However, you need to make sure you have space to accommodate the cooler. On each of the cooler pages, you can find the dimensions of the cooler. Measure the space on your vehicle where you would like to mount the cooler and make sure you...

  • Removing Oil Cooler Sandwich Adapter
  • The sleeve nut and the sandwich adapter are actually two separate pieces. It is possible that the adapter is loose enough to turn, but the nut is staying in place. Try using some channel lock pliers (put a rag around adapter so you do not damage it) to hold the adapter stationary while you loosen the sleeve nut. This should allow the whole thing to come off for you.
