1986 Dodge Ram Pickup - Derale Series 9000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit w/ NPT Inlets - Class I -Extra Efficient

11" Wide x 3-7/8" tall x 1-1/4" deep, radiator-style heat exchanger improves the performance and overall functioning of your Dodge Ram Pickup's transmission. Includes hose-barb adapters to fit the 1/2" NPT inlets.


Features:

  • Prolongs life of transmission
  • Improves overall performance
  • Prevents heat-related failures
  • Has furnace-brazed aluminum construction and 1-1/4" wide turbulator plates for more efficient cooling
  • Includes complete mounting kit, OEM spec hose with stainless steel clamps, Insta-dapt radiator adapter and hose-barb fittings
  • Sleek design makes this ideal for use in compact cars


Specs:

  • Inlets: 1/2" NPT
  • Fittings: 1/2" NPT x 3/8" hose barb
  • Overall dimensions: 11" wide x 3-7/8" tall x 1-1/4" deep
  • Distance between inlets: 8-7/8"
  • Mounting dimensions: 6-3/4" wide x 3" tall

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.

Video Transcript for Derale Series 9000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit Review

Today we're gonna be taking a look at Derale's Series 9000 Plate Thin Transmission Coolers. These come in varying sizes labeled as class one, class five. These are also available individually with just a cooler or as kits that come with mounting hardware and the hoses and adapters you need to get it installed.Now all these coolers will fit on just about every vehicle. The big factors you wanna look into is how much hauling you're planning on doing and heat dysplasian 00:00:27 you need, and how much space inside you have available on your vehicle to get it mounted up. You can mount it just about anywhere you'd like, but it's best to choose a location where it's gonna get adequate airflow. So we've placed ours here just in front of the condenser so we know that airflow is gonna go through here 'cause it has to to get to our condenser and radiator.These coolers are really popular with people who do a lot of towing.

Adding additional cooler to your transmission will help lower the operating temperatures, and this is particularly important when you are hauling heavy loads and your transmission is under a lot of stress. Putting one of these in can help lower those temperatures and extend the life of your transmission, not only when you're not towing, but especially when you are towing by keeping them at normal operating temperatures. What this means to you is it's gonna extend the life of your transmission by reducing the risk of heat related failures.It's a radiator style cooler meaning that it is air cooled. The air will flow through the various fins in here, cooling the pipes that the fluid is running through inside, just like the radiator on your vehicle. The cooler also features turbulator 00:01:28 technology, where it keeps the fluid continually agitated so you don't experience any drops in pressure and it's constantly dissipating heat.While they do come individually, more than likely you're gonna be purchasing the kit as the individual units are more for replacement of an existing unit.

The kit comes with all of your fittings and hoses you need to get it installed in the vehicle. Now depending on your vehicle, you may need special adapters to get it installed and there are many of those available here at etrailer.com to assist in getting this installation unit installed on your particular vehicle.Now it's possible that you may not need an additional adapter, one does come included with your kit to thread into the radiator. Or if you have rubber inline hoses like we do here, we we're able to just use that adapter to go between the new hose that comes in the kit and our factory hose that was going to the radiator originally. Then we just secured it down with the included hose clamps.Now if you're wondering which adapters you may need for your vehicle, you can find those with the instructions that come included with your cooler. Now you're probably on the website going hey, I don't have my cooler yet, well that's okay.

We've got the instructions on the product page here on our website. You can click those below and pull those up so you can be prepared and get everything you need to get it installed.The cooler is simple to install. You just hook it inline between the return line from your radiator to your transmission and the transmission itself. That'll allow you to get the cooling benefits from your factory radiator and then from there, cool it additionally to our supplemental cooler here. Once your cooler's hooked up inline between your radiator and your transmission, you can mount it up and it comes with included snap pins that'll hold it in place and these simply just poke through the condenser and radiator and also through our cooler.

They come out on the other side and there is a locking tab that is placed on 'em that keeps it pinched in place. There are some rubber pads also that you can put between your cooler and your condenser to keep those separated and allow air to flow between them.Now with our fascia back in place, you can see that this is what it's gonna look like when it's installed. On our MDX here, we've got plenty of room in here so you really don't even need to take the fascia off to get it installed, you can get to all of your hoses, you can get to where we mounted it over here. You can easily slide that cooler in and out of the large open spot here. Depending on your vehicle, you may or may not need to remove the fascia to get it installed, just depends on how much room you have to work with.That completes our look at Derale's Series 9000 Plate Thin Transmission Coolers.

Review from a similar Derale Series 9000 in Transmission Coolers


2006 GMC 1500 This product is solidly designed and the installation kit well thought out. The connection hose was heavier and better quality than what the auto parts store could provide. I will be adding additional clamps to the connections so there are two on each just as a precaution against leakage. The single clamps are working well for my test period. I fabricated brackets for mine but using the plastic pins would work just as well. It is a huge improvement over the factory cooler. I would recommend it to anyone that is towing near or at truck capacity. 153950


Comments

The cooler is working flawlessly. I replaced the clamps with 12 PEX pipe crimps for a better seal. The transmission has operated within safe temps while towing 7000 lbs on I-70 over the Rocky Mountains. It is a worthy product!

Review from a similar Derale Series 9000 in Transmission Coolers


My vehicle originally did not have a transmission cooler. After warming up, my transmission temperature would typically be 100 degrees higher than the ambient air temperature, whether moving or stopped. Towing the largest enclosed U-Haul trailer (6'x12') would raise the temperature to about 120 degrees above ambient. After adding this cooler, the transmission stays about 70 degrees higher than the ambient air temperature on the highway, and 80-85 degrees above ambient while parked or driving in slow traffic. I haven't towed that same U-Haul trailer since adding the cooler, but towing a much larger (8.5'x20') enclosed trailer raises the temperature to about 110 degrees above ambient. If you can find a spot the cooler will physically fit, it should work for your vehicle. You may have to get creative to solidly mount it. I used an angle grinder to remove part of a factory brace. When doing work in this area of your vehicle, be careful not to puncture the AC condenser! If you do, like I did, you will have to replace it. Some AutoZone locations will rent a vacuum pump and manifold gauge set. Doing your own repair means the total repair cost is only the sum of the new AC condenser and refrigerant. The inlet/outlet NPT fittings on this cooler need to be tighter than you think. I was worried about stripping the threads, and didn't tighten them enough at first. I ended up removing my bumper cover multiple times to tighten them until they stopped leaking. I found the best way to detect a leak was to zip-tie a folded paper towel below the fitting. If it turned red, there was a leak. For my application, I would have preferred built-in 3/8" hose barb inlets instead of the 1/2" NPT fittings. 242582

Product really works well drop trans temp on Silverado from 160 to 125 degrees F. Could not find additional 11/32" tubing so Used 3/8" trans hose for connection- worked fine. Also I mounted on side with inlet at bottom to maximize cooling. 108166

Review from a similar Derale Series 9000 in Transmission Coolers


Packaging was damaged but no damage to cooler due to solid construction. Had done online searches for installation tips and suggestions. All very beneficial. However, this cooler is larger than many I saw online and I had to find an alternate installation location. I was able to find a suitable location in front of radiator and minor modification (drilled two additional mounting holes in mount bracket and trimmed one corner for clearance.) Overall has shown lower transmission operating temps. Have not towed since installation and hope that lower temps carry over to towing a load. I give this product,shipping, and customer service a thumbs up. 644257

Installed I about an hour in my ‘09 Tahoe. Been in for a week now and lowered the tranny temp an average of 15-20 degrees. I definitely needed the extra hose that was suggested in other reviews. I actually, accidentally, ordered 2 extra so or goes on my “overs” shelf. No trailer hauling yet but will be pulling a 8x16, 4000lb about 2 hours on Friday. That’s my real test. 707691

Review from a similar Derale Series 9000 in Transmission Coolers


Kit had almost everything needed to install on my 09 Subaru Forester. The only extra thing I bought was another four foot length of hose. I made brackets out of metal I had on hand for a more secure mounting, and I installed the cooler with the ports facing the drivers side. I wanted to avoid sharp bends in the hoses so I made loops in both hoses to connect to the existing lines in my car. I also slid pieces of old garden hose over the new hoses at points where it was close to metal parts to avoid chafing of the hoses. The hose supplied with the kit was the correct diameter for my car and the hoses slid onto the existing fittings. I took my time with the install. I had to move the horn so I could position the cooler on the drivers side in front of the radiator and AC condenser. Routing of the hoses to the existing connections required some planning (and an extra hose) but everything else is very simple. Very nice kit! 286681

  • Transmission Cooler for 2016 Honda Pilot
  • It is pretty common for aftermarket products such as transmission coolers to deliver performance that is superior to that of OEM components. Transmission coolers vary in their efficiency/cooling power and are given Class Ratings to indicate their effectiveness. Small is okay but bigger is definitely better when it comes to coolers. For example, a small cooler like the Derale # D13611 (about 11 x 4-inches) carries a Class I rating while the much larger # D13503 (11 x 8-3/4-inches) is...

This is because this cooler's 11 x 8-3/4-inch size allows it to very efficiently cool your transmission fluid a second time, after it is first cooled by the OEM cooler inside your radiator.

If you will be towing a light load, less than 2000lbs, in flat driving conditions, your 1998 Chevrolet Silverado 4x4 5.7L will do fine with a class I rated cooler.

The # D13503, which measures 11x8-3/4x7/8 inches is what I would recommend, assuming that there is enough room behind the grille. You might need to remove the grill and front bumper cover...

The best way to select a cooler is by considering the load you will be towing and the area you will be towing in.

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2007 Toyota Highlander
  • With transmission coolers "size does matter..." Basically the bigger the cooler you can fit in front of the radiator the better it's going to cool your fluid. Between the two you mentioned the part # D13503 would be the best option. It's size is 11" Wide x 8-3/4" tall x 7/8" deep. For your size vehicle this is the perfect size and would do a great job.

  • When you install the Derale Series 9000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler # D13611 a little extra fluid will be needed. The last part of the installation instructions have you add fluid as needed and then drive the vehicle for a little while and recheck the fluid level. Not much additional fluid is needed unless much is spilled when you disconnect and reconnect the lines. Normally just a few ounces of fluid is needed.

  • Fittings Needed to Install Derale Transmission Cooler in a 2013 Ram 1500
  • All of the Derale transmission coolers, like the Series 9000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler # D13611, come with the Derale Insta-dapt Radiator Adaptor # D13004. This fits most vehicles with 5-16" transmission lines. Since it will not fit every line you may need additional fittings or you might need to alter the OEM lines or hoses to install it.

  • Can I Tow a Boat and Trailer that Weighs 1,255 lbs with a 2008 Ford Taurus
  • I do not see any reason why you would not be able to tow a 1,255 pound boat and trailer with a 2008 Ford Taurus. You should check your vehicle owner manual and make sure that the gross trailer weight and the tongue weight of the boat, loaded and ready to tow, are within the vehicle limits. We have the Draw-Tite Max-Frame, # 75299, which has a 3,500 pound weight carrying capacity and would be plenty of hitch to tow the boat you mentioned, as long as the vehicle ratings are high enough.

  • Transmission Cooler for a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder
  • Some Nissan vehicles like the 2005 Nissan Pathfinder can have problems with the transmission and radiator. If it were me I would look for any signs of leaking fluid at the tranny and radiator. Also, if you notice anything out of the ordinary with the way the vehicle changes gears, I would avoid it. The problem that usually occurs is that the radiator will leak coolant into the transmission cooler cavity. Once you get foreign materials or fluids in the transmission its pretty much done. The...

  • Can Transmission Cooler be Installed on a Vehicle with Sealed Transmission
  • Sealed transmissions make installing a transmission cooler a bit more interesting since there isn't an easy way to add or check fluid. There may not be a dipstick on your transmission, but there is drain and fill plug. You are going to have to use a lube pump to get the proper amount of fluid in the vehicle so honestly your best option is going to be to have a transmission shop do the install since they will have the equipment needed. Prefilling the cooler might get you pretty close...

  • Bypassing OEM Radiator on 2005 Nissan Pathfinder
  • The Derale transmission coolers we sell are intended as a supplemental cooler that is meant to augment the factory transmission cooler portion of the radiator, not replace it entirely. If you are experiencing the common problem with the radiator leaking causing the engine coolant to contaminate the transmission fluid, your best bet really would be to have the original radiator replaced. I did a Google search using the keywords Nissan Radiator Problem and found that Nissan has extended...

  • Compatibility of Transmission Cooler with Automatic Transmission on 2006 Toyota Corolla
  • You will want to install the cooler on the return line. You can identify which one is the return by starting out with the engine cold, starting it, shifting into gear for about 10-seconds and then back to park, then shutting the engine off. Feel the two lines; the cooler one is the return line. Please note that when you add a cooler like Derale # D13611 (or a larger one) that is confirmed to fit your car you naturally also add a requirement for additional fluid. Toyota insists that only...
