Derale Power Steering Coolers

  • Dual-Pass
  • With 11/32 Hose Barb Inlets
  • Cooler and Install Kit
  • Derale
  • 8-1/8W x 2-1/2T x 3/4D Inch

8-1/8" Wide x 2-1/2" tall x 3/4" deep, dual-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.


  • 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 rubber hose with stainless steel clamps and all necessary mounting hardware
  • Made in USA


  • Inlets: 11/32" hose barb
  • Overall dimensions: 8-1/8" wide x 2-1/2" tall x 3/4" deep
  • Core length: 5-1/4"
  • Distance between inlets: 1-1/4"
  • 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.

  • Why Would a Vehicle Need a Power Steering Cooler
    Any time a vehicle is not moving or if there is extra weight in the vehicle or because the vehicle is towing it makes it harder for the power steering components to do their job (because of the extra weight or lack of motion). This extra stress produces heat which can damage the power steering pump and break down its fluid. Some vehicles like those made by Toyota require a power steering cooler when towing. Consult the owners manual to confirm for any vehicle. Power steering units don't...

  • Should the Factory Power Steering Cooler be Bypassed on a GMC Envoy if it is Leaking
    You will want to fix the leak or replace the stock power steering cooler on your GMC Envoy since it is factory installed and removing it could result in warranty issues down the road. Plus it will help the power steering pump to last longer. Using an aftermarket cooler such as # D13213 is a great idea. It is an inexpensive solution and will continue to help maintain the performance of the power steering system on your Envoy. Technically you could by pass the cooler and not install a...

  • Troubleshooting Power Steering Pump Cavitation When In Cold Weather
    Power steering pump cavitation in cold weather is common when the power steering fluid needs to be flushed and the filter of the pump needs to be cleaned. The fluid gets thicker when cold so that is why it is more likely to first start happening when cold outside. Cavitation is defined as whining from the pump and a difficult to turn steering wheel.

  • Power Steering Cooler Replacement for 2003 Chevy Trailblazer
    If you wanted to bypass the factory power steering cooler in your 2003 Chevy Trailblazer with the part # D13213 that you referenced you certainly could. The biggest one we offer that would provide the most cooling would be the part # D13200 instead though.

  • Prolonging Life Of Power Steering Pump When Reservoir is Leaking
    Running or not running the air conditioning of your 2008 Chevy Trailblazer won't make much of a difference concerning your power steering cooler leak. Your best option is going to be to make sure the reservoir is topped off everyday till you get it fixed so that you don't burn the pump up in the mean time.

  • Can Fluid Travel In Either Direction Through Power Steering Cooler # D13213
    Fluid can travel through either direction of the Power Steering Cooler # D13213 so it would not matter which end you'd end up using as the inlet or the outlet.

  • Transmission and Power Steering Cooler for 2008 Honda Odyssey
    Honda states in the owner's manual for your Odyssey that the vehicle should be equipped with a power steering and a transmission cooler before using it for towing. Whether you choose to follow that advice is entirely up to you, but opting for the coolers is some very inexpensive insurance that will protect the transmission and steering systems on your Odyssey. The Derale # D13502 would be an excellent choice for a transmission cooler. I've linked you to an install video showing a cooler...

  • Power Steering Cooler for 2006 Mazda 6
    For your high-performance vehicle my contact at Derale recommended replacing the leaking power steering cooler with their part # D13200. He indicated that cooler # D13213 is a bit small for your application.

  • 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.

  • Power Steering Cooler Replacement for 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada
    I wouldn't recommend bypassing the power steering cooler, since that could lead to more problems down the line. The Derale # D13213 you were looking at would work for you, but because the Oldsmobile Bravada is a little bit bigger vehicle, I recommend going with the Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Power Steering Cooler # D13211 . The measures 12-7/8" Long x 2-5/8" wide x 1-3/4" deep, which is 4" bigger than the D13213, so it will provide more cooling power. The Universal Plastic Insta-Mount...

  • Recommended Transmission and Power Steering Coolers for an 08 Honda Odyssey
    If you need to add a transmission cooler for your 2008 Honda Odyssey, I suggest the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit w/Barb Inlets - Class III # D13502. This 11" wide x 7-1/4" tall x 7/8" deep, efficient heat exchanger will prolong the life of your transmission and improve its overall performance. As to the power steering cooler, I suggest the Derale 2-Pass Tube-Fin Power Steering Cooler - 8-1/8" Wide # D13213. This has copper tubing expanded into aluminum fins for...

  • Oil, Transmission and Power Steering Cooler Recommendations for 2003 Acura MDX
    Yes, the aftermarket coolers we sell will provide comparable performance to dealer-installed supplementary coolers. The oil, transmission and power steering coolers we offer are intended to supplement, but not to replace, the standard OEM equipment on a passenger vehicle when it is faced with the demands of towing. The good news is that we offer a number of combination coolers, ones that feature dual cores to allow two different fluids to be cooled simultaneously within one common housing....
