  • Location of Transmission Lines on a 2001 Ford Ranger For addition of a Transmission Cooler
  • One of my co-workers here happens to have a 2001 Ford Ranger with 4.0 Liter engine and automatic transmission, so I went out and checked under the hood. The transmission lines are located at the drivers side radiator tank, see photo, and run down, then across to the passengers side before turning back and running to the transmission. You should check your vehicle because different vehicle accessories or packages and the engine size and drive train may affect the location of the transmission...

  • Is a Transmission Cooler Needed for Towing with a 2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 Liter And CVT Transmission
  • Installation of a Transmission cooler, like the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler # D13503, to cool the constant variable transmission fluid in the transmission on your 2013 Nissan Altima would be a good choice if you will be towing with your vehicle and your vehicle has transmission fluid lines that run to an OEM cooler at the front of the vehicle. These lines could go to a tank mounted cooler in the radiator or to an external cooler in front of the radiator. If your transmission...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation and Installation Instructions for a 2007 Jeep JK 3.8 Liter
  • The Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit, item # D13501, is a Class II efficient transmission cooler and would definitely help the transmission on your JK, but since you are towing 2,000 pounds I would recommend a bit larger Class III cooler like the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit, item # D13503. You cannot cool transmission fluid too much, so the Class III cooler will provide better cooling when towing and will be good for the transmission around...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2012 Ram 3500, 6.7 Cummins with 6 spd Automatic
  • The best way to install a supplemental transmission cooler in line with a factory transmission cooler is to put the supplemental cooler after the factory cooler. To do that you will need to determine which of the lines from the factory cooler is the outlet. To do that you will want to start your truck when its cold, put it in drive for about 10 seconds with the brake on, put it back in park and shut the truck off. Next you will want to grab both transmission lines feeding into the cooler....

  • Yes, the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit, # D13502, will work great on your 2011 Toyota Highlander SE with 4 cyl. engine. You should measure to make sure there is space to mount the cooler, dimensions are on the product page. You may need some additional tools to install the kit on your vehicle. Depending on the type and attachment style of the transmission lines on your Highlander, but you will not need any additional parts. I have linked a video installation of...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2007 Dodge Ram with Cummins Diesel
  • For a full size diesel truck you'd need all the cooling power you can get if you plan to bypass your factory cooler. Stacked plate coolers are the most efficient styles of coolers around so the part # D54010 would be your best option. To complete the installation you will want two of the barb hose fittings, part # D98202, replacement rubber hose # D15799, hose clamps # D13008 and insta-dapt radiator adapter # D13004. The mounting kit is # D50020.

  • Recommended Power Steering Fluid Cooler And Transmission Cooler For 2008 Honda Odyssey
  • Adding coolers like a power steering fluid cooler and a transmission fluid cooler will help prolong the life of those components. You will want to consider the location for the cooler you install. I have attached a drawing that shows the best locations for mounting the transmission cooler. For your 2008 Honda Odyssey the transmission cooler you referenced, part # D13502 would work well. This is a Class lll cooler and comes with the mounting kit, OEM spec hose along with stainless steel...

  • What Fittings Are Available For Connecting A Transmission Cooler To A 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe
  • Here are some of the fittings that I have available that are used to connect a transmission cooler to a radiator on a 2007 Chevy Tahoe. You might want to try and measure the fitting size that is on your vehicles radiator. The Derale Insta-Dapt Radiator Adapter, # D13004, is used in the transmission coolers that we sell. It is a radiator adapter that fits most vehicles with 5/16 inch transmission lines. The Derale Radiator Adapter Fittings for GM, # D13018, are 5/8 inch inverted flare...

  • Engine Oil and Transmission Fluid Cooler for a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • Derale remote transmission/engine oil cooler # D15220 is a great choice for your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser. No adapters are needed for the transmission cooling part except for # D13004. For the oil cooler part you will need installation kit # D15751. You may need to use a shorter oil filter which in this case Wix filter 51381 is the shortest one that is compatible (3.14 inches tall).

  • Compatibility of Derale Transmission Cooler with 2012 VW Routan SE
  • Transmission coolers are not actually vehicle-specific so any given cooler can be installed in many different vehicles so long as there is enough space for the cooler itself and for the fluid hoses, which you do not want to force to make sharp bends and turns (which can interfere with fluid flow). Also, your transmission must have external lines that allow you to tap into that system to insert the cooler. There are two lines, send and return, and the one you want to tap into for a supplemental...

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler for 2001 Toyota Tacoma
  • For your 2001 Tacoma I recommend the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit, part # D13502. This is a Class lll cooler that measures 11-inches wide, 7-1/4 inches tall, and 7/8-inches deep. This cooler is recommended for mid-size cars, SUVs, and trucks like your Tacoma. I have attached a drawing that shows how the hoses need to be run when installing the cooler. If you find your hose is not long enough to attach to the new cooler, you may need an additional Derale Insta-Dapt...

  • Is a Special Fitting Needed to Install a Transmission Cooler on a 2000 Chrysler LHS
  • From what I could find a special fitting is not needed when installing a transmission cooler on a 2000 Chrysler LHS. The Insta-Dapt fitting, # D13004, that comes with the coolers we sell should be all you need. Fitting # D13034 would fit if the lines on the vehicle take a 9/16-24. But that can be difficult to determine. A Chrysler dealer may have this information if you speak to a tech in the service department.

  • Will The GM Adapter # D13035 Fit A 2007 Chrysler 300C?
  • For your 2007 Chrysler 300C, the Derale Snap-In Radiator Adapter Fitting for GM # D13035 may fit but I can't confirm it. Most of the transmission coolers come with an insta-dapt radiator adapter like # D13004 that fits most vehicles and has both male and female threads to fit 5/16 inch transmissions lines. The GM specific adapter is a much nicer option for vehicles that fit, but your Chrysler is not on the list of confirmed fits.

  • Parts Needed to Install Transmission Cooler # D13311 in a 2011 Jeep Liberty
  • You would need the AN fitting adapters part # D98200 for each end of the cooler and then the clamps part # D13008 for securing the hose to the line, and for hose part # D13016. Most likely you will also need the insta-dapt fitting part # D13004 as well.

  • 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. Even though the Insta-dapt is most likely the only other fitting that you will need, you can find additional fittings that you might end up needing...

  • I spoke with my contact at Derale and he confirmed that the Derale 10-Row, High-Performance, Stacked-Plate Cooler # D51008, which you referenced, is a fit for your 2002 Jeep Liberty and can be mounted to your front bumper. To complete the installation you will want two of the barb hose fittings, part # D98202, replacement rubber hose # D15799, hose clamps # D13008 and insta-dapt radiator adapter # D13004. The mounting kit is # D50020.

  • Parts Needed to Mount a Transmission Cooler on a 1999 Toyota Camry
  • Derale Series 7000 Tube-Fin Cooler Core # D13317 is just a core, not a kit, so it does not include mounting hardware, hose, or fittings.
