2013 Acura RDX - Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit w/Barb Inlets - Class II - Efficient

  • Plate-Fin Cooler
  • With 11/32 Inch Hose Barb Inlets
  • Derale
  • 11W x 5-3/4T x 7/8D Inch
  • Standard Mount

11" Wide x 5-3/4" tall x 7/8" deep, efficient heat exchanger will prolong the life of your transmission and improve its overall performance. Specifically designed for Acura RDXs with late-model, electronic overdrive transmissions.


Features:

  • Prolongs life of transmission
  • Improves overall performance
  • Prevents heat-related failures
  • Has furnace-brazed aluminum construction and 3/4" wide turbulator plates for more efficient cooling
  • Includes complete mounting kit, OEM spec hose with stainless steel clamps and Insta-dapt radiator adapter
  • Recommended for small to mid-size trucks and SUVs


Specs:

  • Inlets: 11/32" hose barb
  • Overall dimensions: 11" wide x 5-3/4" tall x 7/8" deep
  • Distance between inlets: 10-1/4"
  • Mounting dimensions: 4-1/2" tall by either 5-1/2" wide or 6-3/4" wide
  • 1-Year warranty


Note: The Derale Insta-dapt radiator adapter fits most vehicles with 5/16" transmission lines, but not all. In some cases, additional fittings or alteration of the OEM lines or hoses may be required for installation.


One of the more popular cooling systems available, the radiator-style, plate-and-fin heat exchanger provides increased surface area so that fluids can spread out along the finned chambers to cool faster. In addition to the increased surface area, this cooler also features turbulator technology, whereby fluids are agitated continuously, not only to facilitate heat transfer, but also to prevent any undesirable drop in pressure.

The cooler itself fixed my Nissan Rogue limp problem completely fine, the installation was annoying, but nothing I didn't expect from it. The only problem I had with this product was that the hose that came with the kit was not long enough for both the return and arrival lines, I had to go to a local auto shop in order to get another hose to complete the installation. 698217

Looks like its well made but hose is only about half of what I will need as this does not just enhance the build-in cooler but must be connected all the way back to the transmission from in front of the radiator. Install will be in a 2015 Subaru Forester 2.5i. 392008

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII

Have a 1998 Lincoln Mark 8 w/ 4 speed automatic which retails for no less than $ 4000.00 - Having this potential monkey on my back , I decided to invest in a trans cooler. Fabricated mounts and bolted on , used double flare connection to cooling line w/ barbed fitting ; barbed fitting @ radiator fitting. Used 2 hose clamps @ cooler, one clamp on each barbed fitting . Could only mount with fittings to left ,fluid leaves radiator , enters cooler @ top ( to reduce pump load ), comes out of bottom & returns to tranny. No trans temp. guage, but cooler gets hot @ idle, verifying cooler works . Well constructed and sturdy,easy to mount ; comes with instructions. 296567

Installed the Derale 8000 because my 2001 Buick Century would shift hard when it got hot outside. So far i've driven it a week and it's been shifting smooth. The Derale Snap-In Radiator Adapter installed easily with no leaks. I suggest getting extra hose. Needed another 12" to complete. 199118

2003 Honda CR-V

I found etrailer.com on random search in the internet after we bought our CRV and started researching hitches. U-Haul, whom I use often I use often and like very much, wanted $400 for the hitch, harness and transmission cooler. I found all three on etrailer for $200, and they delivered it quickly (and I mean quickly) and it wasl well packaged, etc. I figured I was a handy person, and thought how hard could it be? Well not only where the products high quality, the instructions clear and easy, they videos are a life savers for people who do better "seeing" a process, rather than "read" about a process. The hitch took me 20 minutes, the harness 20, and the Transmission Cooler about 45. Thank you etrailer for the pleasent experience, I am already going to order a few accessories for ouu CRV, and guess where I will be buying them! In case is was unclear, etrailer all the way. 136377

2006 Pontiac Grand Prix

My tranny fluid was running hot on my 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP. The transmission on these cars is known to not be able to handle the power of the engine too well so I wanted to do anything to help it out. I had this cooler installed to supplement the factory cooler. I am not towing anything so a large cooler isn't a necessity. So far, this cooler is working as I expected, keeping the fluid below 200 degrees with the temperature outside above 100! Though a larger cooler would probably get the temp closer to where I'd like it, there is not much room in the engine compartment for something much bigger on my car. 19828

2004 Oldsmobile Alero

Product was as described on the website. Installation took a few hours - no where near as easy as shown on the installation video - to install on my 2004 Alero. The challenge is that the upper line transmission cooler line is the line you have to route the cooler hoses to and mounting the cooler and getting the lines routed up to the top of the radiotr houseing required removal of the front bumper, loosening the radiator mount (from below the car - there are two wing nuts) and then CAREFULLY drilling a 11/2" hole in the plastic molding that completely covers the front upper portion of the radiator. Then you can route the hoses through the hole. I bought the optional GM fittings and that made connecting the hoses very easy. 17938

I was lucky enough to have Etrailer install this on my Grand Caravan (they made a video). I drove 800 miles towing a 6x12 enclosed trailer with NO problems. It kept my transmission cool towing through the mountains. I have towed smaller trailers with the minivan that made it shift strange. After installation, all better. 17549

The product arrived in a timely manner and was as advertised. The product included all hardware needed to install it onto the vehicle. The only problem I had was identifying the transmission lines and determining which line was the hot side and which was the return side. This was no reflection on the product, but more detailed installation instructions would have been nice. The installation videos on the website contributed greatly to my decision to purchase the product. 17382

Review from a similar Series 8000 in Transmission Coolers


Purchased this product for my 2013 Nissan SV as was pulling a 23 ft RV on a 6500 mile out west trip from Fl. to NY, via Grand Canyon, Yellow Stone NP, and Mt. Rushmore. Had some 7% & 8% Mts. to climb, so put extra cooler on as protection. Granted, this was a second cooler, but for the money, figured well worth it. The whole trip went absolutely problem free. Trans. never got above normal operating temp. Sooooooo--for my money, this product performed better than i presumed it would. If your not sure if you need it, for the cost, but it anyway. Installation very simple, and results speak for themselves. 468695

Review from a similar Series 8000 in Transmission Coolers


I received my cooler for my 1989 Olds 88 in record time (e.g. 2 days)! After reading the instructions, I saw that the manufacturer recommends the cooler be installed in series with the cooler integral to the cars radiator. This requied addtional hose (about 3ft.). The local auto parts store carried 5/16" hose (same hose ID but a different mfr than that supplied) but found the auto parts store hose next to impossilbe to place over the cooler header fitting. I was able to install a clamp before the tubing walked itself off. I would recommend taking the cooler to the parts store and fit it up with a hose that fits properly if you need to get extra for installation. I appreciated the video that was available on your website to familiarize myself with the installation before I attempted the project. I have yet to put it to the test with a trailer in tow. Seems to be quality product. The instructions were well written. Thanks! 23813

Review from a similar Series 8000 in Transmission Coolers


Hardly any difference in flat land driving temps. Perhaps 5°to 10° cooler is all. Pulling my 10K camper any grade at all and temps still climbed. Mountain passes on any day over 80° , the trany still gets over 200° quickly. On the plus side the cooler seems to recoupe quicker than the stock one. 2009 Chevy gasser . 738567


Comments
A normal operating temperature for your transmission fluid is between 175-225 degrees F. Adding a transmission cooler effects every vehicle differently based on a number of conditions - such as if youre towing, how heavy a load youre carrying, the outside temps, etc. From what youre describing it sounds like the results youre seeing are keeping your transmission running within that normal range. Even while towing close to your max capacity over the mountains on a warm summer day, your transmission fluid is still at the sweet spot of 200 degrees F.

Review from a similar Series 8000 in Transmission Coolers


Installed this in a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder. Fit is excellent. I wanted to remove the factory radiator connection as this is a common point of failure allowing coolent to enter the ATF. This is plumbed from the transmission to the factory cooler, then to this new cooler, then back to the transmission. The only thing extra I had to buy was a 3/8 double barb to connect to an existing hose. This cooler adds about half a quart of ATF to the system. I can't speak for any temp drops as I don't have a temp gauge installed yet. 101344

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch, Wiring, and Transmission Cooler for 2015 Honda Odyssey
    Starting with the trailer hitch for your 2015 Honda Odyssey I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III # 75270 because of its robust capacities (4,500 pounds towing and 675 pounds of tongue weight) indicating a stronger unit along with its simple installation process that just requires lining up the hitch to existing holes in the Odyssey's frame.

    The Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit # D13501 will absolutely fit your 2017 Chevy Colorado without any type of 90 degree adapters.

  • Recommended Transmission Coolers for 2012 Chevy Traverse Pulling 3700 lb Camper
    Towing in mountainous areas can be hard on a transmission, so installing a cooler is an inexpensive way to provide protection. The most efficient place to install a transmission cooler is directly behind the grille, in front of the radiator and A/C condenser. We recommend measuring the available space in this area, and then choosing the largest transmission cooler that will fit. The # D13501 is a great choice, but if you have the available space, I would go with the # D13502 which measures...

  • How Much Transmission Fluid Should Be Added When Installing Transmission Cooler
    The amount of transmission fluid you'd need to add after installing a transmission cooler like the Derale # D13501 really depends but typically it's around 1/2 of a quart. I wouldn't totally adhere to that figure though as the amount that spills out during the install process will vary. Best option is install the cooler with extra fluid nearby and then add as needed once the process is complete.

  • Where is Flat Towing Procedures Listed for a 2014 Nissan Frontier Manual Transmission
    As long as you followed the flat towing procedure that was outlined in the owners manual of your 2014 Nissan Frontier the dealer cannot blame the braking problem you have on how you flat towed your vehicle.

  • Which Transmission Cooler is Recommended for a Nissan Frontier with 6,500 Pound Towing Capacity
    The best way to decide which class cooler you need is to take a look at what you will be towing and where. If you will be towing a light load, less than 2,000 pounds, in flat driving conditions, your vehicle will do fine with a Class I. If you will be towing 6,000 pound load through some hills, I would use the Class III cooler. I prefer the 8000 and 9000 series. They are built a little heavier and are more resilient. The 7000 series are built a little lighter and can be damaged more...

    Adding a transmission cooler would be a good idea, especially if you will be towing during the summer.
