Derale Power Steering Coolers

  • Quad-Pass
  • With 11/32 Hose Barb Inlets
  • Cooler and Install Kit
  • Derale
  • 8-1/8W x 5T x 3/4D Inch

8-1/8" Wide x 5" tall x 3/4" deep, four-pass, tube-fin heat exchanger improves the longevity and overall functioning of your vehicle's power steering system. High quality copper tubing with aluminum fins.


Features:

  • Cuts back on heat-related pump failures
  • Extends the life of both pump and seal
  • Designed with copper tubing expanded into aluminum fins for maximum heat transfer
    • Copper is the best material for conducting the heat out of the fluid while aluminum is ideal for transferring and dissipating that heat
  • Provides protection during installation with extruded plastic fin guards
  • Includes 4' of 11/32" rubber hose with 4 stainless steel clamps and all necessary mounting hardware
  • Made in USA


Specs:

  • Inlets: 11/32" hose barb
  • Overall dimensions: 8-1/8" wide x 5" tall x 3/4" deep
  • Core length: 5-1/4"
  • Distance between inlets: 3-3/4"
  • 1-Year warranty


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. Quick, easy and effective.

2009 Honda Odyssey

1. High quality
Good Year hose and decent real hose clamps
2. I'm not a fan of "through the condensor-rad zap straps"; I made up aluminum brackets and mounted the tranny cooler and power steering cooler with 1/4" bolts (nylock nuts) to the bumper so it was about 1/2" from condensor.
3. Hose size matched Honda factory size perfectly. Hoses were a tight fit, so I used pliers to rotate oiled hose back and forth over the nipple while I pushed very hard.
4. power steering cooler: NO mounts so I used 3 insulated wire clamps clamped over the tubing to mount it to an aluminum U-shaped-bracket. I cut the pwr steering factory line, flared the end and used the factory hose with a formed 90° bend into the top of the pwr strg cooler. I later (not in pic) used more aluminum to move pwr strg cooler back closer to condensor. The plastic end caps you mounted on the power steering cooler seemed flimsy and loose.

I am confident I will have a reliable journey through Yosemite, Death Valley and Tahoe over the next 2 weeks.

Thank you.

Had this in our Honda Pilot now for over a year. Easy installation, had no problems. Been a game changer having a trailer and being able to haul stuff around.




by:

I bought the PS cooler for my Honda Odyssey so I could tow a trailer without voiding the warranty. While towing, you are usually required to turn off your overdrive. This makes the engine spin a little faster and increase the heat of the PS fluid. I was able to tow a small 4x8 uhaul trailer from Denver to San Diego without any problems. I also installed a "plate/ fin" transmission cooler from the 8000 series I believe. Towing a trailer can really add a lot of heat to your trans so this is a must too. I really must say I like the videos you post on YouTube to help installation. I watched them to the point I had them memorized! It's a tricky and tight job but something a good backyard mechanic can handle. I also bought my trailer hitch from Etrailer. Everything worked perfectly. One suggestion is to buy two packages of the trans cooler hose because it can be tough to find out in town if you need a little more. I highly recommend this setup and Etrailer is great to deal with.


Comments
Everything is still working as originally installed. No leaks or loosening of the tie down straps detected. My complaint would be with Honda for not installing both coolers as original equipment. The Honda PS cooler is completely inadequate for towing. It actually is just a piece of tubing in the airflow in front of the radiator. The Honda front end is a very tight package so you need a nice clean garage where you can take everything apart and not be rushed. Watch those videos too before beginning the project

Professional installed. Working well after 1 year. Expect it to keep working.

Installed today on 2007 Honda Odyssey. Went OK, not great. Removed top panel, bottom splash guard, and grill, but left bumper and bumper cover on and that seemed to work just fine and saved me some time. These zip rods are a pain and it only came with 2? Needs at least 3. Its square. How are just two suppose to secure this thing sufficiently? I had to add my own regular zip ties. But, even worse, the kit doesn't come with enough hose. I know its a universal kit, but how much would it raise the price to include a couple extra feet of line? Now, I have to go find some more line at a local store and pay the brick and mortar premium. The factory line from the ps res isn't long enough to bend 180 and run back out to this cooler. disappointing, but really not the fault of the product I guess since its a universal kit.

Now, for the real test- towing to the max 3500lbs for a two month, 4000 miles road trip. if I still have a working ps pump after that, I will give it the 5 stars.




by:

So far this has been excellent.. only thing I don't like is the design for mounting.. they expect you to mount it to the radiator with a special type of zip tie.. mine have held on but what if you need to replace your radiator?

Product shipped extremely quickly. Packaged well and box delivered by UPS in great condition. Have yet to install




by:

Great product, great price. Still good after a year, have made many more orders from etrailer since. High quality, great price and fast shipping and easy to follow videos and instructions. What more can you ask for?




by:

Arrived in great shape! Had dealer install it along with Transmission cooler. Took about 4 hours for dealer to install both coolers, so thankful I didn't try to do it on my own.




by:

I've had this part installed in my van for about a year and it worked out just fine. It was easy to install too, the videos from the website were helpful. I would recommend these products to anyone....




by:

I installed this on my 2007 Honda Pilot and it worked great. No problems at all with install. Be sure and watch the e Trailer video on the installation.




by:

This went in relatively easy. I had to buy larger hose to connect to the car, as the hose that came with it was too small to connect in the car.

I've had this in for over a year, and have towed twice in that time, no problems at all.




by:

After researching the correct part for my application, etrailer had the best price. Ordering was easy and the parts arrived in 3 days.




by:

Easy install. Your videos were a big he lp.




by:

A year later, the PS cooler still works great on my 2006 Honda Pilot.




by:

Great fit, easy to install. Needed to purchase longer hose to complete install.




by:

Great products and even better instructional videos




by:

The coolers were well made and easy to install. They are working well.

  • #D13212 Oil Cooler Recommendation for a Hydrostatic Drive Scag Lawnmower
    I spoke with my contact at Derale, and he informed me that the Derale 4-Pass Tube-Fin Power Steering Cooler, part # D13212, does not have turbulators in the tubes. I also asked him if this would work on the hydraulic system of your Scag lawn mower, and he said that the # D13212 would work as it is pressure tested to 350 psi. I attached a link to a transmission cooler FAQ page below that you might find informative also.

  • Does an Oil Cooler Install on the Supply or Return Lines on a Scag Tire Cub Zero Turn Mower
    Cooler # D13212 is actually a power steering cooler. It could still be used as an oil cooler but you would have to tap into an oil line somewhere since this cooler does not come with a spin-on or sandwich oil filter adapter. Usually supplemental coolers are installed on the return line. You would only need one cooler the size of which is up to you but we generally say to go with the largest that will fit.

  • Derale Power Steering Cooler part # D13212 Recommendation for a 2008 Honda Pilot
    Yes, you could use the Derale Power Steering Cooler part # D13212 as a supplemental power steering cooler for your 2008 Honda Pilot. This cooler could be used as a standalone power steering cooler, or if you have a factory cooler already you could use this in conjunction with that one as well. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out also.

  • Recommended Power Steering Cooler for 2006 Honda Pilot
    Power steering coolers, like the Derale # D13212, are not vehicle specific. So you can use this cooler, or any one that will fit in the available space under the hood, on your 2006 Honda Pilot. The dimensions of the # D13212 are 8-1/8 inches wide by 5 inches tall by 3/4 inches deep. I have linked all of our power steering coolers along with an installation video of the power steering cooler to this page for your convenience.

  • Are Power Steering Coolers Designed to Fit Specific Vehicles
    Power steering coolers are not designed or made to fit specific vehicles, and though the Derale 4-Pass Tube-Fin Power Steering Cooler # D13212 with 11/32" hose barb inlets is very likely to work, we do not have access to the specific fittings for your 2013 Ford Expedition or any other vehicle. The only way to do this for sure is to place a quick call to your local Ford dealer, who should be able to give you this information.

  • What Power Steering Cooler Is Recommended On A 2005 Honda Odyssey
    The choice of power steering cooler for your 2005 Honda Odyssey will depend on the amount of room you will have to mount the heat exchanger on your vehicle. The power steering cooler will be installed inline with the power steering pump and the heat exchanger will need to be located in a position where it can get airflow to help cool the fluid. Since you are installing a transmission cooler also, you will want to make sure you will have room for both the transmission cooler heat exchanger...

  • Power Steering Cooler Recommendation for a 1985 Ford F-250 with a 460 Engine
    The choice of a power steering cooler for your 1985 Ford F250 will be primarily dependent on how much room you have near the power steering pump and how much airflow you can get to that area to help the cooler lower the temperatures of the power steering fluid. Typically coolers are mounted in front of the radiator, so I would recommend you measure how much room you have in front of the radiator and pick a cooler that will fit those dimensions. Most likely you will need to cut and flare...

  • Power Steering Cooler Recommendation for a 2000 Mazda B3000 Pickup
    Power Steering coolers are not vehicle specific items, so any cooler that fits in front of the radiator or air conditioning condenser on your 2000 Mazda B3000 Pickup would be a good choice. The larger the cooler is the better it will perform so I recommend getting the largest cooler that will fit easily. Measuring is required. The Derale Power Steering Cooler, item # D12213, would be a good choice and you will need an area at least 9-1/8 inches Wide x 2-1/2 inches tall x 3/4 inches deep...

  • Power Steering Cooler Recommendation for a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab
    I had a power steering fluid leak on my car and it ended up being a hose issue that was covered under a recall. This may be something you can look into by calling a dealer and asking about open recalls on your year and model Ram. If you do need to replace the cooler I would go with something larger like the Derale 4-Pass Tube-Fin Power Steering Cooler, # D13212. For the most efficiency in cooling, mount the cooler in front of the A/C condenser core in front of the radiator.

  • Derale Power Steering Cooler Recommendation for a Honda Pilot
    If you are looking for a heavy duty power steering cooler I would go for a Derale 4-Pass Tube-Fin Power Steering Cooler # D13212 over the Derale Tube-Fin Power Steering Cooler # D13310 that you referenced as the # D13212 is a four pass cooler that would have more cooling power than the # D13310. Either cooler would work on your Honda Pilot, but the # D13212 would have more cooling power and I would consider it heavier duty.

  • Recommendation and Installation of Power Steering Cooler on 2008 Honda Pilot
    The installation of a power steering cooler is not that difficult. The hardest part is finding the space to locate the heat exchanger on the vehicle. The cooler is connected to the low pressure line coming from the power steering pump using the included hardware.

  • Power Steering Cooler Recommendation for a 2003 Ford Truck with a 7.3L Motor
    The larger the cooler the more cooling you will get out of it. If you are doing a lot of towing or carrying weight in the bed or even using a snow plow a large cooler would be a good idea. The cooler you selected is a good choice but for the kit use # D13212. It includes mounting hardware, hose clamps, and hose. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you.

  • Is Derale Tube-Fin Power Sterring Cooler Made with Copper
    These particular Derale Tube-Fin Coolers, part # D13309 and part # D13212, are copper tube with aluminum fin construction. Most of the coolers available will use copper and aluminum. Copper is used because it has excellent heat transfer abilities so it can transfer heat easily to aluminum which has excellent heat dissipation properties. Stainless does not transfer or dissipate heat as well. Derale does offer some all aluminum coolers where both the tubes and fins are made of aluminum for...

  • Power Steering Cooler Recommendation for 2007 Honda Odyssey
    We do offer a few different power steering coolers in a few different shapes and cooler styles. The most popular and most efficient will be the part # D13212 which is pretty small at 8-1/8" Wide x 5" tall x 3/4" deep and is a 4 pass cooler which means it will provide great cooling power. I attached an install video on a similar Honda Suv for you to check out as well.

  • Power Steering Cooler For Use With Farm Tractor
    My recommendation for your farm tractor is to make this easy for you because the unique fitting issues are already in play. I suggest using the Derale 4-Pass Tube-Fin Power Steering Cooler - 8-1/8" Wide, # D13212, which uses hose barb inlets and hose clamps. This kit comes with 4 feet of 11/32 inch rubber hose with all the necessary mounting hardware for a vehicle. Whether you go with the # D13309 or the # D13212, this is not a typical application, so some custom fittings will be needed....

  • Transmission and Power Steering Cooler Recommendations for 2006 Acura MDX
    Since transmission and power steering coolers are not actually vehicle-specific you are free to select as large a cooler as you have space available to install it. Ideally the best location is in front of the air conditioning condenser where the coolers will receive maximum air flow.

  • Transmission Cooler and Power Steering Cooler Recommendation for a 2005 Acura MDX
    For a transmission cooler that would work well on your 2005 Acura MDX the Derale part # D13503 would be an excellent choice. Since this is a larger cooler at 11" Wide x 8-3/4" tall x 7/8" deep it would work great for if you wanted to bypass the factory cooler as well. I attached an install video on a similar Honda SUV for you to check out as well. For a power steering cooler you would want to go with a smaller cooler since they don't generate as much heat.

  • Which Cools Better a 2 or 4 Pass Power Steering Cooler
    The more times the fluid passes through the heat exchanger of the cooler the more it can be cooled. So the 4 pass part # D13212 would cool better than the 2 pass cooler part # D13213 that you also mentioned. The advantage of the 2 pass cooler would be if there wasn't much room to mount the cooler.

  • Does an Acura MDX Need a Power Steering Cooler When Towing
    Not all vehicles and tow setups require the use of a supplemental power steering cooler, but if while you are driving or towing your steering wheel gets harder to turn or you hear it straining after a while you might look into a power steering cooler like part # D13212.

    That is entirely possible and your vehicle owners manual may have that information. Or the best option would be to have an Acura dealer run the VIN on your 2005 MDX and they should be able to tell you how it is equipped. The most popular power steering cooler we have is # D13212. It is 8-1/8 inches wide, 5 inches tall, and 3/4 inches deep. If space is limited then # D13200 would be a better option. It is 12-5/8 inches wide, 2-1/2 inches tall, and 3/4 inches deep.

  • Recommended Power Steering Cooler for 2004 Honda Pilot
    Pretty much the only time that a power steering cooler would be overkill is if you lived in a cold environment. If you live in a cold environment then you will just want to give your 2004 Honda Pilot a little time to heat up the fluid before driving around. The same can be said for a transmission cooler; you really can't "overcool" it. With that being the case, I say go with the Derale 4-Pass Tube-Fin Power Steering Cooler # D13212 over the Derale 2-Pass Tube-Fin Power Steering Cooler...
