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.

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.

2009 GMC Yukon XL towing a 7,800lb travel trailer from California to South Carolina..... I don't believe the Yukon would have made this journey if it wasn't for the additional transmission cooler and engine oil cooler. Dragging the travel trailer through the mountains during the heat of the summer was taxing. However, my transmission never got above 190 F when it was over 100 F outside. Before installing the oil cooler AND transmission cooler, my engine temp would go to the 1-2 o'clock position and transmission temp would get up to 210 F. Highly recommend this product. 548155

I have a 2010 Silverado 4x4 with a 6speed auto trans. I load it with a 3000 bl. cab over camper and take on the Sierra Nevadas a lot. Trans temp is very important to me as a former GM certified automatic transmission technician. For two week prion to installing this cooler I documented my trans temp reading under different driving conditions and ambient temperatures. Trans ran consistently between 180 to 210 degrees with no load in the bed. After installing this cooler and driving it under the same conditions as before, I have a clear in temp by 40 degrees. I also notice that if temp goes up from climbing a large grade, it s back down MUCH faster. A lot of these reviews talk about how easy it was to install the cooler... I would like to stress how well it works!!

2010 Chevrolet Colorado

I recently had the chance to use the Derale 8000 series transmission cooler during my last camping trip and was very impressed. I have a 2001 7.3 Powerstroke with 4" exhaust, S&B intake, gauges and a DP Tuner (60hp tow). I pull a 10,000 pound 5th wheel around Colorado. It seems like every where I pull in Colorado is up hill. It was common to see my transmission temp easily and quickly reaching 210-220 when towing mountain passes. Just before my last trip I installed the Derale cooler and the highest trans temp I saw was 190 at the top of Wilkerson Pass. What is more impressive was how quickly the temp dropped as I came out of the pass. For most of my trip my trans temp stayed around 180. While pulling in the city I saw temps around 200 which I assume was due to stop and go driving and not having the constant airflow through the cooler. I installed the cooler right behind the stock front grill to the vertical post with self tapping screws (the grill still fits perfectly). I then used two thin strips of metal that I got from the hardware store and secured them to the cooler and to the second vertical post. I wanted the cooler in the front of my truck to get maximum airflow. I then spray painted the metal strips black just for looks. I did have to buy an additional 4' of hose due to the location where I mounted the cooler. The optional instal kit was simple. The adaptors screwed in my radiator with no problem at all. Once I decided to mount the cooler the entire project was quick and simple. 143154

2013 Chevrolet Colorado

Hello Gang, I have a 2013 Chevy suburban and tow a 7K plus travel trailer. While we were towing to Colorado near Cripple Creek the temps were low 90's and my trans spiked at 230. Had to pull over to let it cool down. Now keep in mind my suburban does not have a HD trans cooler just the stock radiator cooler. Fast forward one year now my stock trans line is starting to leak from the rubber hose so it's time to change. Decided to order the larger trans cooler might not have been the best idea as it's larger then where I wanted to put it. So after taking off the front bumper, headlights misc brackets and lots of bolts I was able to get it up behind the "A" frame bracket in front of the radiator. Make sure if you go this route to put the rubber hoses and clamps on before installing because you will not be able to install the hose after. The bracket the holds the hood latch has openings that just happen to line up with the inside bolt holes on the cooler. Hoses facing down You will need to cut the bottom of the plastic out of the way to route the hoses under the frame. Cutting the original trans cooler line was easy and the rubber hose was long enough to make both connections so I did not need the adapter. If I used the adapter the rubber hose would be too short. On the bottom I used the foam pads between the cooler and the frame and secured it with heavy duty Zip ties. Can't wait to test it out this summer. I forgot to take pictures of the final install but did take one picture showing the "A" frame in the middle of the radiator. It fit's perfectly behind it. 613917

I installed the cooler last weekend in my 2008 Silverado. I've included some pictures. I made a strap to support the upper portion of the cooler and thru bolted the lower to the existing bracket. The hood bracket lower bolts had to be cut down to 1/4" length so they would not contact the cooler. The lower mount bolts had to be spaced to give the hood mount weld nuts clearance. Now to see how it does with a trailer and the Pacific Northwest hills. 81391

2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

We've had it for a year in our 2008 TrailBlazer 2WD with 4.2L inline 6 cylinder. I think it's about the largest that would fit and we got it for a towing our 21' expandable camping trailer that can be about 4,500 lbs. max. Works great, although I added another install kit to be sure I had enough hose and the extra brackets and connection adapters. I did not want to use the mounting parts that poke through the radiator and A/C condenser fins, so I got the Derale kit with brackets and hose in an affordable kit together, part # D13006. 520230

I bought this because the transmission temp in my 2013 Avalanche was hitting 220 when towing a boat. Which seems high. After researching I found that transmissions in those models are ok up to a maximum of 275 degrees (which seems crazy but it is rated that high from chevy. There’s a website called Silverado.com that has a lot of info ). I installed this product and it worked really well. Easy install with the video if you have mechanical ability. Dropped temps by about 30 degrees. Still working great no problems. Only concern I have is that the transmission temp stays pretty low in the winter. It’s working well though. I would highly recommend this product. Good products, good service! 837600

Saw a pretty solid drop in temps, tops out around 150deg without my trailer. Judging from the unloaded results, I'm expecting to see temps stay under 190 with the trailer. Plumbed right in on my 2011 Yukon denali using the other 2 fittings they recommended. Hose was the perfect length, everything looks to be pretty good quality. 806623

It hasn't helped very much. I wish I would have bought a version with an electric fan. My stock temperature gauge still shows my 2003 F350 7.3 Powerstroke transmission getting hot when climbing a hill at a slow speed. I'm only pulling a 30 foot travel trailer when this happens. I would like to add a electric fan on this one, if I could find out what would work best with this cooler. Maybe that would help? 796801

I’ve had the Timbren suspension enhancement system for a year now on my ‘99 Dodge 1500 4x4. I purchased this product because I had to tow my bumper pull three horse trailer from South Carolina to N. Central Montana. With a camper top, the bed loaded and the trailer loaded the truck sagged really bad. With the Timbrens on the sag went away completely. Making for a much safer less stressful experience while towing. 772867

    The Derale Series 8000 Series Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit part # D13504 would be a fine choice for your 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD with the 6.0 Vortec Gas Engine. The 8000 Series would have plenty of cooling power for your needs and they are rather slim so you won't have much issue finding space to mount it nor would it affect the cooling power of your radiator.

    You currently are in a pretty safe zone for your transmission temperature. But if you wanted to maximize the life of your transmission going with a supplemental cooler like the Derale part # D13504 would be a great option. You'll want to install this cooler after your factory cooler and you'll get the best cooling capabilities. For an adapter fitting to make the process easier you'd want the part # D13035. You'll use your existing lines plus the rubber lines that come with the cooler kit.
