2005 Dodge Grand Caravan - Derale Hyper-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler Kit w/ Fan, -6 AN Inlets - Class V

13" Wide x 10" tall x 5-5/8" deep, fan-mounted, remote cooler has the most efficient type of heat exchanger core, a stacked plate, and a 500-CFM, reversible tornado fan to ensure optimum airflow.


  • Improves performance and overall functioning of transmission
  • Has super-efficient, stacked-plate cooler core for optimum heat transfer
    • Most efficient cooling system with the large surface area of the stacked plate design and turbulator technology
    • Furnace-brazed aluminum construction for great heat dissipation
  • Offers superior airflow with 500-CFM, reversible tornado fan
  • Designed with clear, anodized aluminum shroud for additional durability
  • Mounts anywhere with aluminum mounting brackets
  • Includes:
    • Complete cooler assembly
    • Aluminum AN fittings
    • Brass hose-barb adapters
    • 180-Degree, in-line thermostat for power-saving fan shut-off
    • 10' OEM spec hose with stainless steel clamps
    • Insta-dapt radiator adapter
    • Additional compression fittings
    • All necessary mounting hardware
  • Made in USA


  • Inlets: -6 AN
  • Adapters: -6 AN x 3/8" hose barb
  • Overall dimensions: 13" wide x 10" tall x 5-5/8" deep
  • Distance between inlets: 10"
  • Electric Fan Rating: 4.8 amps
  • Thermostat Switch Rating: Maximum of 15 continuous amps
  • Mounting dimensions: 7-1/2" wide x 9" tall
  • 1-Year warranty

Note: The Derale Insta-dapt radiator adapter fits most Dodge Grand Caravans 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.

Stacked-plate heat exchangers have long been considered the most effective type of oil or transmission coolers, primarily because of their increased surface area. Allowing fluid to spread out over this larger surface area decreases the time required for heat transfer to take place. As a result, plate coolers typically manage to cool a greater volume of fluid faster than tube-and-fin, or even plate-and-fin, varieties. Add to that a powerful tornado fan that ensures optimum airflow at all times, no matter the environment, and you have a super-efficient heat exchange unit.

Mounted between fuel tank and transfer case. Larger 6.0 cooler would go in front of intercooler. Dont need anymore heat there. This was cheaper and works great in this position. Wrapped exhaust near the lines as they have to dump out on right side of trans. and I did not want any hard 90 degree turns with all this extra plumbing. Keeps temps way lower. Also installed oversize/cooler pan. FYI using temp sensors in pan and in valve body. Pan is regularly 30 degrees cooler than valve body. 438701

2010 Toyota Highlander

excellent quality product, I have intalled the fan/cooler on a toyota highlander 2010 without tow package not infront of the a/c radiator but exactly at the same place as toyota install the oem transmission cooler just behind the right fog light. I have a travel trailer of 3300 lbs dry, (4000lbs gross weight) and before my transmission temperature was around 215-220 F with a standard transmission cooler(without a fan) infront of the a/c radiator, but now with my new derale fan cooler, its around 180F after a long climb. I am totally satisfied. I had to build a bracket to fit the cooler in this tiny space behind the fog light, it took me 6-7 hours . 141122

Review from a similar Derale Hyper-Cool in Transmission Coolers

Love my engine oil cooler. I was having overheating problems with my Dodge truck while towing on a hot day. I asked the guys at etrailer if I should add a bigger radiator, and engine oil cooler or another tranny cooler. They nailed it when they recommended a supplemental engine oil cooler. I now can town my fifth wheel RV trailer on the hottest days and in the mountains without overheating. I do still have to watch the temps and if they start to get over 260 f or so I downshift a gear or two to get greater fluid flows. The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is that with the supplied hose clamps I was plagued with constant slow leaks. I finally bought a much higher end hose Clamp which did solve the problem. 268306

Review from a similar Derale Hyper-Cool in Transmission Coolers

Appears to be well-built and wasn't too hard to plumb in series with the existing oil cooler. Unfortunately with my 2010 Suburban it did not make any difference in the oil sump temperature shown by the computer - either daily driving or while towing. I plan on borrowing a laser thermometer to see what the actual input/output temps are. 230261

Do you have a question about this Transmission Cooler?

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • You mentioned wanting the best cooler for your 2003 Chevy Silverado. The best, as in the most amount of cooling, is going to be a remote cooler with its own fan like # D13960. It does not matter where this cooler gets mounted because its fan offers the optimum amount of cooling all the time. Otherwise for a standard cooler that would require air flow I recommend # D13105. Its large surface area will provide plenty of cooling for your trucks transmission. To avoid cutting and flaring...

  • Can a Transmission Cooler be Used to Bypass the Radiator on a 32ft Motor Home
  • I verified with my contact at Derale that the Derale Hyper-Cool Transmission Cooler, # D15960, will work to bypass your radiator and cool your transmission fluid. One important thing to consider when installing a transmission cooler is the size of your transmission lines. If the diameter of your transmission lines are 1/2 inch in diameter, then you will want to go with the transmission cooler that you referenced. If your transmission lines are 3/8 inch in diameter, then you will want the...

  • Transmission Cooler Options for a 1996 Ford F-250 with 7.3 Liter Diesel Engine
  • We currently have 6 transmission coolers that are recommended for your 1996 Ford F-250 with 7.3 liter diesel engine. I have included a link to them below. Even though the Derale Hyper-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler Kit with Fan, -6 AN Inlets - Class V, # D13960, is not on that list, transmission coolers are not technically vehicle specific, so you could install it on your truck with the proper sized fittings. The D13960 comes with -6 AN x 3/8 inch hose barb adapter and one of the recommended...

  • Replacing the OEM Transmission Cooler on a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The transmission coolers that we have on our site are meant to be supplemental coolers, meaning they are meant to be installed on a vehicle that has a transmission cooler that is in good working order. That is why we only have videos of them being installed on the OEM part. We have had some reports of people using supplemental transmission coolers to replace their OEM cooler so if you do decide to replace your OEM cooler with a supplemental cooler then you will want to make sure that...

  • Mounting Of Derale Hyper-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler Kit On 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD
  • I contacted our representative at Derale and he informed me that the Derale Hyper-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler Kit With Fan, part # D13960, can be amounted anywhere. Since it uses a fan for cooling, it is not necessary to use the radiator for cooling as the fan is strong enough to provide cooling power. It may be beneficial for more cooling efficiency if you can mount it in front of the radiator, behind the bumper, but it is not required. Transmission fluid cannot be cooled too much...

  • Can a Transmission Cooler be Used to Bypass the Factory Cooler on a 2007 Hummer H3
  • It is usually the other way around with factory transmissions coolers in radiators. By that I mean that normally you see a problem with the factory coolers, not the aftermarket replacements. It is possible to bypass the factory cooler in the radiator by blocking off the input/output locations for the transmission cooler on the radiator. You would then need to mount the largest possible cooler that you can get to fit or install a remote cooler with its own fan. The Series 9000 Plate-Fin...

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler for 2011 GMC Sierra 5.3L
  • For a fan-powered transmission fluid cooler for your 2011 GMC Sierra I recommend a high-efficiency Class V stacked-plate type remote cooler from Derale, their Hyper-Cool # D13960. You'll also use Snap-In Radiator Adapter Fitting # D13035. The Hyper-Cool measures 13- wide x 10- tall x 5-5/8-inches deep and it will draw a maximum of 4.8 amps. The Hyper-Cool offers a powerful 500-cubic-feet-per-minute air flow, and is reversible. All required mounting hardware is included. This cooler is...

  • Bypassing the Factory Radiator Transmission Cooler 2008 Acura MDX
  • The Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit w/Barb Inlets part # D13503 is an excellent supplemental transmission cooler. However, I would not use this cooler as the sole source of cooling your 2008 Acura MDX's transmission fluid. This transmission cooler is designed for supplemental use meaning, it is more or less to aide the factory transmission cooler (radiator) not replace. This transmission cooler is really not capable of being responsible for the sole source of cooling...

  • Oil and Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser For Off-Road Racing
  • Since you want to cool both engine oil and transmission fluid for a demanding off-road racing application I suggest you go with two separate coolers rather than a dual-core combination cooler. My contact at Derale confirmed the best options for your FJ Cruiser are their # D13960 Class V fan-powered Hyper-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler and their # D15660 Hyper-Cool Remote Engine Cooler. Derale runs their own off-road racing events and my technical contact was very clear that for your...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2000 Ford F-350 with 7.3 Liter and Heavy Towing
  • A large cooler like # D13105 that you have referenced would be a good choice. The larger the cooler and the more airflow it can get the more efficient it will be in cooling the transmission fluid. You may also need to add fitting # D13025 so you will not have to cut and flare lines. But I think you would benefit more from a remote cooler that has its own fan like # D13960. That way you will always get the optimum amount of cooling all the time. I have included a link to our FAQ article...

  • Transmission Cooler with Fan Recommendation for a 1997 GMC RV with a 4L80E Transmission
  • I would go with the Derale Hyper-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler Kit w/ Fan # D13960 since this one comes with all of the installation hardware and lines unlike the # D13870 that you referenced. The cooler on this setup is a stacked plate design which is the most efficient style on the market and the fan will flow 500 cfm of air through the cooler to keep the temperatures down. If your transmission temp gauge is maxing out then I would strongly urge you to install this product so...

  • Derale Remote-Positioned Transmission Cooler for 2012 Chevrolet Suburban 5.3L 4WD
  • A supplementary transmission cooler is an excellent addition to almost any towing vehicle and we have options for your 2012 Chevrolet Suburban 5.3L. If you have the specific transmission model 4L80E in your Suburban you can use pan-style cooler # D14207 from Derale. The benefit of a bolt-on pan cooler is that you actually add fluid capacity to your transmission system. This item does not simply radiate away heat like # D13503; it both radiates heat away and cools additionally by letting...

  • Difference Between Derale Hyper Cool Remote Transmission Fittings D13960 and D15960
  • The difference between the kits is the size AN fittings that come with either. Aside from that it's the same coolers and the same fans. The Derale Hyper-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler # D13960 comes with -6 AN inlet fittings and the part # D15960 comes with -8 AN fittings. -6 means the hose is 3/8 inch diameter and -8 means 1/2 inch diameter. The bigger the diameter the more fluid can flow through it. Either are a great option for your truck.

The Derale Hyper-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler Kit w/ Fan, -6 AN Inlets - Class V # D13960 has the specific fittings you mentioned but it also comes with the barb fittings that simply use a hose clamp. On this cooler, the lines attach to the sides of the cooler. This transmission cooler has internal turbulators for superior heat transfer.

  • Mounting The Derale Hyper-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler Kit w/ Fan In 2013 GMC Sierra
  • For your 2013 Sierra 1500, I recommend mounting the Derale Hyper-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler Kit w/ Fan, -6 AN Inlets - Class V, # D13960, using your second option. I'd leave the stock cooler alone and mount the Derale cooler with fan in front of the passenger wheel well. The stock cooler location will allow that cooler to function at its potential and then you can add the Derale cooler, which can function almost anywhere with its attached fan to further cool your transmission.

  • Rerouting Transmission Fluid from the Factory Radiator 2007 Nissan Pathfinder

This is a fairly common problem on certain vehicles and can cause further harm to both the vehicle and transmission if not corrected.

  • Remote Mount Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2008 Dodge Ram Cummins
  • For as big of a truck as you have I would go with the Derale Hyper-Cool Remote Mount Transmission Cooler part # D13960. This is Class V stacked plate cooler (the most efficient style of cooler) with a fan that can flow 500 cfm of airflow that would do very well. This kit also includes all of the necessary rubber lines and hoses to install on your vehicle. I attached a couple FAQ articles on transmission coolers for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Transmission Coolers for 2009 Nissan Armada SE 2WD Towing Travel Trailer
  • We can help you with a supplementary transmission cooler for your 2009 Nissan Armada SE 2WD to reduce its operating temperature when you tow your new Forest River travel trailer. For a standard passive cooler that mounts in front of your AC condenser I suggest the Derale Class III model # D13503. This will provide significant additional cooling of your transmission fluid. For a higher-capacity passive option the Class IV model # D13613 is a good choice. If you happen to often tow...

  • Comparing a Remote Mount and Standard Transmission Cooler
  • The Derale Hyper-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler Kit w/ Fan part # D13960 would absolutely provide greater cooler power than the Derale 25-Row High-Performance Stacked-Plate Cooler part # D52508. The reason for this is because the fan provides constant airflow which in turn translates to more cooling whereas with the standard cooler you would be subjected to the mobility of the vehicle for cooling power. If you find yourself in a lot of stop and go traffic then the cooler with a fan would...

  • Transmission Cooler for a 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara JL with 2.0 Liter Turbo
  • Supplemental transmission coolers such as # D13503 are not actually vehicle specific. That means that as long as your 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara has an automatic transmission and does NOT have a closed system (meaning you are able to check and add transmission fluid yourself without special tools) then you can install a supplemental cooler. All automatic vehicles have a transmission cooler of sorts. Usually it is built into the radiator. Since your Jeep has a turbo motor that...

  • Fitting Adapter Needed to Install Remote Derale Transmission Cooler in 2004 Chevy Silverado

This cooler has a thermostat as well. You would want to route this from your current radiator's transmission cooler so that it goes through the factory cooler and then finally to this cooler. That is what the fitting allows you to easily do.

  • Yes! You can use 2 of the Derale 40-row coolers # D54008 to cool the transmission fluid on your prostreet car. The stacked plate design is the most efficient at cooling. To optimize cooling make sure the coolers are mounted where they can get the most air flow (right behind the grille). I also recommend a couple of mount kit # D50020 and some hose. For a 25 foot length with an inner diameter of 11/32" use # D13007. For 25 feet of a 3/8" diameter use # D13017. We also have a 4-pack of...

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler with a Fan for 2007 Nissan Frontier
  • Our most popular transmission cooler with a fan is the Derale Hyper-Cool # D13960. This is a stacked-plate cooler which is the most efficient style available. It also uses a 500-CFM fan for airflow. You can mount it anywhere you have room in your engine compartment since there's no need for airflow. It's most common not to replace your factory cooler but to add an additional supplement cooler.
