Expert Answers about Derale

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler For 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 5.3L V8 323 Cubic Inch Engine
  • For your 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, I think you are on the right track with the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit # D13503 you asked this question from. It is 11" wide x 8-3/4" tall x 7/8" deep. For your specific application, I recommend a plate-fin cooler like the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit w/Barb Inlets - Class IV - Efficient, # D13504. This plate-fin style provides increased surface area for the plates to cool faster. This transmission...

  • Installation of Derale Transmission Cooler in 2013 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • It is recommended to use the # D13504 in addition to the factory cooler on your Silverado. This will further help cool the transmission fluid. If you determine you will remove and replace, then you will need the adapter fitting # D13035. My recommendation if that is the case is to use the Derale Dyno-Cool Remote Cooler with Fan and Hose Barb Inlets # D12743. This will ensure you have proper cooling to protect your transmission with the integrated fan. Then you simply need to determine...

  • What Is The Best Transmission Cooler For A 2012 Honda CR-V

Both the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit part # D13503 and the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit part # D13502 are excellent options designed to fit in the provided space on your vehicle.

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 5.3 Liter
  • The general rule is to keep the transmission fluid at or below 200 degrees Fahrenheit. When towing, especially in the mountains and in summer time, the transmission fluid temperature can increase much higher so adding a supplemental cooler is a good idea. A supplemental cooler can decrease the temperature significantly due to more airflow to the fluid and more capacity (fluid) in the system. The most popular cooler for your 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 is # D13503. But if it were me...

  • 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...

  • Best Transmission Cooler And Suspension Enhancements On A 2009 Chevrolet Suburban
  • Lets first start out my addressing the transmission temperatures on your 2009 Chevrolet Suburban. I have two options for you to consider. Both are transmission coolers, however, each are designed to mount in a separate location. If you find yourself frequently stopping in traffic, where airflow to the radiator is restricted, I recommend using a remote mount transmission cooler like the Derale Hyper-Cool Extreme Remote Cooler Assembly w/ Fan part # D15876 in addition to the Derale Remote...

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler, Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2008 Honda Odyssey
  • Our available selection of transmission coolers are given class ratings simply to help customers select an appropriate model for their vehicle. Because we are in the towing industry, our customers are used to seeing these Class ratings for trailer hitches, so this is an easy way to alert a customer as to which cooler might be the most efficient for their towing needs. For example, if a customer has a Class I trailer hitch, they are not going to need the larger size and capability of a Class...

  • Recommended 2011 Honda Odyssey Transmission Cooler And Thermostat
  • For your 2011 Honda Odyssey, the transmission cooler I recommend is the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit w/Barb Inlets - Class III - Efficient # D13503. This is a plate-fin cooler with furnace-brazed aluminum construction and 3/4 inch wide turbulator plates for more efficient cooling. I recommend Derale thermostat # D13011 with mounting bracket # D25793, and extra hose # D13016 for this installation. The thermostat will allow 90 percent of the fluid to bypass the...

  • 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...

  • What is Needed to Tow a Trailer With a 2008 Honda Odyssey?
  • So far you have Draw-Tite Hitch # 75270, a 4-way harness # 118438, brake controller install kit # ETBC7, Proidgy RF brake controller # 90250 and transmission cooler # D13503. This is a very good start in terms of what you need to tow with your 2008 Honda Odyssey. However, you were correct that you will need a ball mount, hitch ball and pin and clip. If you are going to be towing, I recommend checking out Ball Mount Kit # 989900, which may fulfill your towing needs in one tidy package;...

  • Is Transmission Cooler Needed for 2017 Honda Odyssey EX Towing 1100-lb Tent Trailer
  • The online edition of the owner's manual for the 2017 Honda Odyssey lists towing capacities on page 401, and these naturally vary depending on the passenger and cargo weight load in the vehicle. The rating are based on the Odyssey having a supplemental transmission fluid cooler installed. The maximum tow rating of 3500-lbs presumes only 2 passengers are in the vehicle. Even with 7 occupants the Odyssey still can tow 1450-lbs so given that most 8-foot tent trailers do not sleep too many...

  • Transmission Cooler for 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • It's definitely not abnormal for your transmission fluid to heat up while towing, especially when you're going up hills that force the truck to work a lot harder. To help with this adding a transmission cooler like you mentioned is a great idea. For your 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500HD I highly recommend the Derale Hyper-Cool Remote Transmission Cooler Kit w/ Fan # D13960. This cooler will do a great job of improving the performance and function of your transmission with its reversible...

  • Recommended Engine Oil Cooler for 2013 Honda Odyssey
  • For your 2013 Honda Odyssey I would recommend the Derale Combination Transmission and Engine Oil Cooler # D15902 because it's both an engine oiler cooler and transmission cooler in one. This way you can prolong the life and performance of both of them without having to install two coolers. This cooler also includes multiple sleeve nuts with different thread sizes so you that you can find the right fit for your van. Another option is the Derale Econo-Cool Combo Engine and Transmission...

  • Recommendation on an Engine Oil Cooler on a 2008 Toyota Tacoma with 4.0 L V6
  • I have a solution for you for an engine oil cooler for your 2008 Toyota Tacoma. The Derale Tube-Fin Engine Cooler Kit w/ Adjustable Sandwich Adapter, # D15505, is a tube-fin cooler design that uses the sandwich adapter to connect to the oil filter base on the engine. The kit includes multiple filter sleeve nuts for multiple applications on different vehicles. For your 4.0L V6 on your Toyota, you will need to use the 3/4 inch -16 thread sleeve for your application. For a more higher...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2017 Toyota RAV4
  • I wish I could say yes, but your Rav4 uses a cartridge style oil filter that the # D15902 won't work with. I wish we had a similar setup that works with your style of oil filter but we do not. 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...

  • Towing Setup for a 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • According to my research, your 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon has a max towing capacity of 1,000 lbs if the trailer does not have brakes or 2,700 lbs if the trailer does have brakes. You can improve the towing performance/efficiency of your vehicle with a transmission cooler like part # D13503 but you cannot increase it's capacity. The tongue weight rating of 200 lbs is correct but I cannot recommend you go over this. In order to set your Outback up for towing a trailer with brakes you will...

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler For A 2013 Ford Expedition XLT
  • You are correct in that towing a trailer over 6,000 lbs. with your 2013 Ford Expedition XLT will require you to have the factory equipped heavy duty tow package, according to the vehicles owners manual. The factory equipped heavy duty towing package came with additional towing supplements such as a 7-way wiring harness, auxiliary transmission cooler, electric brake wiring kit, and a trailer brake controller. No, the Expeditions without the heavy duty factory towing packages did not come...

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler for 2009 Chevy Suburban with 5.3L Engine
  • For your 2009 Chevrolet Suburban with a 5.3L engine, you can still install any transmission cooler that will fit in the available space between the grille and A/C condenser. Transmission coolers are not vehicle-specific, so any cooler for which you have the proper mounting space can be installed as long as the transmission has external lines to allow you to tap into the system. I recommend taking a look at the Derale Transmission Cooler # D13503. This is an excellent and efficient heat...

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler for a 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 with the 6.2L V8 Engine
  • I spoke to my contact at Derale about adding a transmission cooler to your 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 with the 6.2L V8 engine and they informed me that there should be no problem using one so long as you install it after the factory transmission cooler. I cannot confirm what your truck was or was not equipped with but its sounds like you are referring to a bypass function that reroutes the transmission fluid from the cooler until it reaches a certain temperature. Unfortunately, there would...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2007 GMC Yukon Denali
  • The transmission cooler part # D13504 would be exactly what you need. This is a large cooler that would work well for your 2007 GMC Yukon Denali. I attached an install video that shows it being installed in a very similar 2009 Yukon as yours. Your engine temperature doesn't really seem that bad at all. But the transmission cooler will help slightly with that since it will allow the factory transmission cooler to run cooler as well which is connected to the radiator. Also the transmission...

  • How to Pick Out an Electric Radiator Fan for a 2001 Chevy Express 1500 with 5.7 Liter Motor
  • There isn't one specific electric fan for your 2001 Chevy Express 1500 5.7 liter. You will need to compare the available space you have to mount a fan to the dimensions of the available fans. Keep in mind that if you place the fan in front of the radiator it will need to be a pusher fan. If it is mounted behind the radiator it will need to be a puller fan. Fan # D16934 is a puller so it would have to go behind the radiator. This fan measures 31-3/8" wide x 15-3/4" tall x 3-1/4" deep...

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler for a 2013 Chevy Tahoe
  • I have the perfect transmission cooler option for you. Generally speaking, the best transmission cooler to use would be the largest one you have available space for. The best place to install a transmission cooler is in front of the radiator/condenser behind the grill on your 2013 Chevy Tahoe. I recommend using the Derale 25-Row, High-Performance, Stacked-Plate Cooler part # D52508 because the plate and fin technology incorporated into this transmission cooler is far more efficient than...

I recommend the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit # D13502. This is 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. The overall dimensions are 11" wide...

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler for 2012 GMC Yukon
  • The Flex-a-Lite FLX4126 will work for your 2012 GMC Yukon and comes with the necessary parts needed for installation, though there is a better option I recommend you. The Derale # D13504 is a plate-and-fin style cooler, which is a more efficient option than the tube-and-fin style that the Flex-a-lite is. The difference is that the plate-and-fin style cools better because smaller and flatter plates allow more fluid to be cooled. Additionally, the bigger the transmission cooler the better,...

  • When installing the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit # D13504 on your 2008 GMC Acadia SLT2 V6 there really is no "correct" way to orient the cooler as it can be mounted with the ports being up, down, left, or right as you mentioned. I have attached the installation instructions for you to check out, but for the hose connections you will need to do the following: 1. Disconnect the return transmission cooler line from the radiator. 2. Take the supplied Insta-dapt...

To be certain, I recommend asking your local Honda dealer if firmware adjustments are necessary. For a transmission cooler that will work with your 2017 Honda Pilot, I recommending using Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit w/Barb Inlets part # D13503 as this is the...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2011 Chevy Silverado
  • You are a little on the warm side for your transmission fluid. If you can keep it under 200 degrees you will have the max life out of it. That being said transmissions really start to go downhill at 260 degrees. The Derale cooler part # D13503 with the install fitting part # D13018 is the most popular option for your 2011 Chevy Silverado 1500 and would work well. I attached an install video that shows the cooler installed in a similar GM vehicle.

  • Best Available Transmission Cooler For A 2012 GMC Yukon
  • It is certainly possible for you to add an additional transmission cooler to your factory OEM cooler. In most cases, the best cooler for your application will prove to be the largest available that will fit in the designated space. Fortunately, you have a good amount of room to mount an even larger cooler in front of the radiator behind the grill. The most efficient cooler for you vehicle would be the Derale Transmission Coolers part # D13504. You will also need the Yukon Hose adapter...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 5.3 liter V8
  • 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.
