Video Transcript for Derale Series 8000 Transmission Cooler Review

Speaker 1: Today we'll be having a look at the Derale 8000 Series line of plate-fin transmission coolers. Here's what our transmission cooler looks like installed. Now, the reason you're gonna want an auxiliary transmission cooler such as this one on your vehicle is quite simple. Heat is the enemy of transmissions. It is the number one cause of premature failure on your transmission. By reducing the temperature of the fluid inside your transmission, you will extend the life of it, and also have added cooling abilities.

The colder the transmission fluid is, the more heat it can actually absorb. Plus, we are expanding the cooling capacity of the system by having additional room for more fluid, which, will also help reduce the temperature.Now, you may ask, "How is this important to me because my vehicle already has a transmission cooler build inside the radiator" Well, it's quite simple. If you we're ever planning on doing aggressive driving, or towing a trailer, towing a trailer causes additional wear and tear on your transmission, and causes increased fluid temperature. By cooling the temperature down further, you are making it easier on your vehicle in order to tow that extra weight. Now, how this works being installing in addition to the factory cooler inside the radiator, the fluid will leave the factory transmission cooler from the radiator, go inside of our auxiliary cooler here that we installed, get cooled down even further, and then go back into the return line that goes into your transmission.

So, you're adding additional cooling capacity, and a secondary cooler by having this aftermarket cooler installed.Now, for a few measurements to better assist you in choosing if this cooler's gonna work for your vehicle. At its widest point, it's 11" wide. From the very top to the very bottom, it's 7 1/4" tall, and it is 7/8 of an inch thick. Now, one thing our customers have noticed, when they're installing this cooler on a vehicle, they have noticed when they're installing it inline with the factory transmission cooler, that they have needed additional hose. Now, we do have additional hose available on our website.

Now, the 8000 Series of Derale transmission coolers are plate-fin design, and the plate-fin design increase surface area. The more surface area that we have, the more cooling capacity that we have. The more of your fluid you can spread out over a larger distance, the more it can get cooled down to reduce the temperature of your transmission.This cooler also features turbulator technology to help agitate the fluid passing through it. To help with heat transfer, but also to help prevent any drop in fluid pressure. Our transmission operates off fluid pressure, so if it falls below a certain amount, it may not shift gears properly.

By maintaining our fluid pressure, our transmission will shift gears properly, and work as it's designed. This cooler has an aluminum construction, so we don't need to worry about it corroding or rusting out over the course of time. It also has a nice gloss black finish, so it'll be easily concealed behind the grill of your vehicle, and it won't be visible are you're looking at the front of your car.And that completes our look at the Derale 8000 Series line of plate-fin transmission coolers.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ask the Experts about this Derale Transmission Coolers

Do you have a question about this Transmission Cooler?


  • Will a 2016 Ford Fusion SE Tow a 1,100 Lb Trailer
  • I cannot recommend that you tow a 1,100 lb trailer with your 2016 Ford Fusion SE that has a maximum towing capacity of 1,000 lbs for liability reasons but in all honesty, you would most likely be just fine. Personally, I wouldn't really be concerned with towing over capacity by only 100 lbs. I would just avoid hilly areas if at all possible. In order to tow a trailer with your Fusion you will need a trailer hitch, trailer wiring harness, and ball mount/hitch ball. Also, if you will...

  • 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. I have attached an installation video on the 2015 Odyssey that you can use for reference. Then for trailer wiring the Tekonsha T-One # 118521...

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler for a 2011 Honda Odyssey
  • The Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler, # D13501, that you referenced will work well on your 2011 Honda Odyssey. The Derale cooler is designed to be a supplemental cooler that will work with your factory OEM transmission cooler. The cooler will be mounted ideally at the front of the radiator for the most efficient operation. However, not all applications will allow you to mount the cooler in this position.

  • Transmission and Power Steering Cooler Options for a 2006 Honda Pilot Towing 1520 Pound Trailer
  • It is always recommended to follow the instructions of the manufacturer, in this case Honda, but adding a transmission cooler and power steering cooler is always a good idea. When towing, the added weight puts more stress and strain on the transmission and power steering components. Adding coolers will extend the life of these components by keeping them at their optimum operating temperature. For your 2006 Honda Pilot and the trailer and ATVs you plan to carry, I recommend going with...

  • 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.

  • Parts Needed to Tow Trailer with 2006 Honda Odyssey
  • I have listed the parts you will need for your 2006 Honda Odyssey to complete your towing setup for towing a travel trailer with trailer brakes. For a brake controller I recommend Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Brake Controller, # 90195. This is one of our most popular brake controllers and the easiest to use and setup. To wire the Prodigy brake controller on your 2006 Honda Odyssey you will need to have a 4-Pole trailer connector on your vehicle. Then, you will have to hardwire the brake controller...

Basically, regardless of a super cool feature, you will need to choose a transmission cooler based on where you can mount it. The most efficient place is between the grille and AC condenser core(position A on the picture to the right). The second most efficient place is between the condenser and radiator(position B).

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2013 Nissan Frontier
  • A lot of vehicles have external transmission coolers similar to the Derale Transmission Cooler # D13501 that you referenced. Some of these coolers are adequate for towing whereas others do not keep the fluid cool enough. My understanding is that there are two transmission coolers on your 2013 Nissan Frontier. One larger one integrated into the radiator and a smaller one downstream of that one. What we often recommend is installing a larger auxiliary cooler downstream of the cooler...

  • 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...

  • Is a Transmission Cooler Recommended for a 2007 Toyota Sienna Towing a 1,500 lb Camper
  • Adding a transmission cooler would be a good idea, especially if you will be towing during the summer. Overheating is one of the main causes of transmission failure and towing a trailer puts more stress on the engine and transmission. Transmission fluid cannot be over cooled, so it is best to install the largest and most efficient cooler that will fit. A cooler that I would recommend for your 2007 Toyota Sienna is the Derale Series 9000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler, # D13612. This...

  • The Curt Class II trailer hitch you referenced, part # C12038 has a 3500 lb towing/350 lb tongue weight capacity. If you'll only be using the hitch for towing a trailer, it should work just fine for you. However, if you're wanting to use the hitch as an attachment point for other hitch mounted accessories like a cargo carrier or a bike rack, it wouldn't be the best choice.
