  • Engine Oil Cooler 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab 3.6L V6

  • Recommended Engine Oil and Transmission Cooler for a 2010 GMC Yukon Denali AWD
  • The Derale Combination Transmission and Engine Oil Cooler part # D15902 would be the best option for your 2010 GMC Yukon Denali AWD because the Derale Combination Transmission and Engine Oil Cooler for GM Applications part # D15903 does not come with the correct oil filter thread adapter you need which is a 22 mm x 1.5 mm. The Derale Combination Transmission and Engine Oil Cooler part # D15902 does come with the 22 mm x 1.5 mm oil filter thread adapter you need. The only other thing you...

  • Oil Cooler that Fits 2013 Ram 1500 with 5.7 liter Hemi
  • I did some checking and your 2013 Ram 1500 with the 5.7 liter Hemi has oil filter threads that are M22x1.5 which means that for a cooler kit you'd want the # D15405 which includes a fitting that matches this size. The cooler that comes with this is a plate-fin style cooler which is incredibly efficient so it will do a great job keeping your oil as cool as possible.

  • Oil/Transmission Cooler Installation in GMC Yukon XL
  • In the two Derale combination oil/transmission fluid cooler kits # D15902 and # D15903 the actual cooler core part is the same, measuring 17" wide x 12-1/2" tall x 3/4" deep, but the difference between the kits is that part # D15903 is a GM-specific kit while the other is a universal kit with more parts to allow it to work in more applications. These extra component parts are the reason for the higher cost. For your Yukon you will use # D15903 along with Snap-In Radiator Adapter # D13035. I...

  • Best Transmission Cooler for a 1994 Ford F-53 Chassis Motorhome
  • For the functionality, the Derale Electra-Cool Combo Cooler, part # D15200, is the best cooler for your engine and transmission. The 8-pass tubes and 650-CFM tornado fan work in conjunction to keep both cool and extends their life, prolonging the period between fluid changes. We don't have anything here that can rival it.

  • Difference Between Class III and Class V Oil Coolers
  • The difference between a Class III hitch and a Class V oil cooler is generally the size of the cooler that comes with the kit. The classifications are a bit arbitrary and there isn't a size requirement for each Class but we wanted to organize them in such a way that the higher Classes had larger coolers. The Oil Cooler part # D15451 is a Class V that measures 9-7/8" Wide x 9-1/2" tall x 1-1/4" deep which will be highly efficient on your 2015 Ram 1500.

Based on my research your vehicle has a 22mm thread, which is one of the filter thread sizes this kit comes with.

They suggested to make sure you have everything installed correctly. This includes checking that you have the thermostat fitting installed on the inlet side of the oil cooler. Next, check the wiring for the thermostat switch. On the thermostat switch, one terminal should be wired to the positive wire coming from the electric...

  • Are Engine Oil Coolers Fits for 2017 Subaru Outback
  • Engine oil coolers can fit any vehicle so long as there is room for it to install. So the best oil cooler, the Derale Hyper-Cool Remote Engine Cooler Kit # D15660 measures 13" wide x 10" tall x 5-5/8" deep so you'd need that much room in your 2017 Subaru Outback. The larger the cooler, the better the cooling, so if you can fit this cooler in I recommend it, otherwise there is the 9-7/8" wide x 9-1/2" tall x 1-1/4" deep Engine Oil Cooler Kit # D15405 you mentioned which is also a very...

  • Could Derale Combo Transmission Cooler D15200 Fit 2017 Toyota Tacoma with 2.7 Liter
  • You'll have to compare the dimensions of the Derale Remote Electra-Cool Combo Engine and Transmission Cooler Assembly # D15200 to the available space in your 2017 Toyota Tacoma since this doesn't have a specific fit list. Basically as long as you have room for it you'll be good. Since it has it's own fan having access to air flow is not super important either. I attached a picture that shows it's dimensions.

The Derale Engine Oil Coolers # D15405 is compatible with oil filters with those dimensions so it would work well for you.

  • Is Vehicle Engine Oil Being 225 Degrees Safe
  • You are actually totally fine. Engine oil does best when it's temperature is right at 225-230 degrees when the vehicle is at operating temperature so there would be no need to keep it any cooler. Synthetic oils can handle up to 300 degrees without a problem. As long as the coolant temperature is within the correct range (it should be) then you have nothing to worry about. One easy trick to reduce coolant temperatures that you can pull off since you are down south is to replace the coolant...

  • How Does the Transmission Cooler Portion of D15902 Route to Vehicle
  • In the install video for the Combination cooler part # D15902 that you referenced it is used as a transmission and power steering fluid cooler so it does not show it getting attached to the oil filter system. The return line of the factory transmission cooler (radiator port) gets run to the inlet of the Derale cooler and then the outlet of the Derale gets run to the return line of the factory system that runs back to the transmission.

  • Does the Installation of Derale 15902 on 2015 Toyota 4Runner Require the Use of the Sandwich Adapter
  • When installing the Derale # D15902, the Universal thermostatic sandwich adapter is used to add your oil lines to the cooler. It's not necessary to install the adapter during installation if you don't want to have your oil cooled as well. Using this cooler without the adapter will only bring the temperature of your coolant down and not the engine oil with this type of installation. You could look to see if there is an oil filter available that would allow you to use this feature or you...

  • Will Derale Oil Cooler Work On 2014 Ram 1500 With Remote Oil Cooler
  • In my research I found that the threads on the old filter you said you use has 3/4-16 threads. The Derale Stacked-Plate Engine Oil Cooler Kit # D15602 has a threaded sleeve with those thread dimensions. You would use the sleeve that has he yellow label attached to it.

  • Do Thermostatic-Controlled Oil Coolers Allow All Engine Oil to Flow Once Warmed Up
  • Without knowing exactly what oil cooler you bought it's hard to say for certain if the sandwich adapter you have operates like you described, but I can say that the norm is that once the oil reaches 180 degrees the adapter allows all of the oil to pass through it and on to the engine cooler.

The fan promotes superior cooling because most coolers just rely on air flow. You might get a little bit better cooling with separate units but not enough to really notice a difference.

  • Is Engine Oil of 230 Degrees Too Hot for Truck
  • Actually your engine oil temperature isn't bad at all. Ideally when a vehicle is warmed up the engine oil is between 230 and 260 degrees which yours being 230 is perfectly fine. Since engines are kept cool with coolant that does not directly cool the oil the engine oil can get warmer than the coolant. But since oil actually likes to be warmer this is perfectly fine! Also the thread sizes of the # D15505 you referenced are not compatible.

The oil filter then does attach to the sandwich adapter.

For just a transmission cooler though we have the Derale part # D13503 that would work well. Typically engine oil filters aren't needed or recommended for newer vehicles anyway. In most cases the cooling system for the engine is more than adequate and the oil coolers only end up lowering oil pressure...

  • Best Engine Oil Cooler for 2015 Ram 1500 5.7 Liter
  • Both the Derale # D15405 and # D15602 are great options for your 2015 Ram 1500. Since engine oil coolers are not vehicle specific, either cooler will work well for you. The # D15602 is a stacked-plate design which generally cools faster and more efficiently, which is why it's able to be so much smaller.

  • PSI Pressure through the Sandwich Adapter and is Flow Lost in Engine Oil Cooler Kit # D15405
  • I spoke with my contact at Derale regarding the Engine Oil Cooler Kit, # D15405. He stated that typical pressure through the sandwich adapter on a vehicle at 3,500 RPM is 50 to 60 psi on a normal system and up to 90 on a high flow/high volume system. The adapter itself can easily manage that amount of pressure.

  • Recommended Oil & Transmission Coolers for 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche Towing Trailer in Hilly Areas
  • Towing places an extra heat burden on both your engine and transmission. Adding a supplementary cooler (or coolers) can take some of this extra stress off the tow vehicle and give you fewer worries as you tow, especially when you're in mountainous areas where there are long slow climbs without a lot of air flow to cool things down. For an oil cooler that will reduce your engine's operating temperature no matter what your actual driving speed is, I suggest a powered cooler that will cool...
