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 clamps included. This cooler measures 11 X 7-1/4 X 7/8 inch. Depending on the installation, you may need additional hose, part # D13003.

The power steering fluid cooler I recommend is part # D13200. This is a 2-pass cooler that measures 12-5/8 X 2-1/2 X 3/4 inches. This includes the hose, clamps, and mounting hardware needed for installation. I have attached a drawing that shows how a power steering cooler is typically installed.

Question:

Getting ready to buy and I was looking at the installation directions for the power steering cooler and it shows it going thru the factory installed cooler first. I don't think has a factory cooler (that's why I'm getting one) , so shall I have to get one of those first?

The supplemental transmission cooler installation instructions have drawings that show the way the cooler is to be installed. There should be a radiator installed on your vehicle similar to the one shown in the installation video I have attached. The location depends on the amount of space you have under the hood on your Odyssey.

The radiator should be right behind the grille on your Odyssey. If you are having a difficult finding a suitable location to mount the supplemental cooler, I recommend checking with a reputable mechanic in your area and they should be able to help you out with the installation.
