Fit of Derale # D15230 Transmission/Oil Cooler on 1997 Ford Taurus


Can I use the d15230 trans oil cooler with fan on my 1997 ford Taurus compatibility? Thanks


Expert Reply:

Transmission and oil coolers aren't vehicle specific, but in some cases the fittings needed to install them on the vehicle can be. To install the cooler on your Taurus, you'll first need to ensure you have available space to accommodate the 12-3/4 x 7-5/8 x 3-3/4 inch size of the cooler/fan assembly.

You'll need the # D15752 Install kit with thermostatic fan control for the oil cooler portion of the install and to tie in to the transmission return line, you'll need # D13014 if your car has 1/4 or 3/8 inch transmission line fittings or # D13024 for 1/2-20 fittings.

I've linked you to some FAQ articles about transmission coolers that you might find helpful.
