How to Determine if Engine Oil Filter Will Fit 2017 Ford Explorer With 3.5L V6


What oil cooler you can recommend for my ford explorer 2017, v6, 3.5l, xlt, non ecoboost, towing capacity 5000 lbs? this oil cooler D15602 works? I saw that you have an Superchips Dashpaq part # SU1060 that makes the transmission stiffer, this will fit with my ford? I have already installed a class III hitch and brake controller both made by Curt.

The Derale Stacked-Plate Engine Oil Cooler Kit with Sandwich Adapter # D15602 is a great choice for an engine oil cooler for your 2017 Ford Explorer with a 3.5L V6, as it offers a highly effective cooler and its adapter does fit your Explorer's 22 mm x 1.5 mm engine filter threads.

It will almost assuredly fit, but in order to determine for certain, you will need to take some measurements just to be sure, and you have a number of possible mounting locations, as you can see in the cut out I added of the linked installation instructions. The Derale Oil Cooler # D15602 measures 13" wide x 4-9/16" tall x 2" deep so you need to measure at the locations in the instructions to see if you have that much space in your Ford.

In regards to the performance chip, I checked with both Superchips and Edge, who also manufacture tuners, and there is not a performance chip/tuner that will work with your 2017 Explorer. The closest option is a display, the Edge Insight CS2 Comprehensive Gauge Display # EP84030 which connects to your OBD-II port and gives you read outs of many parameters and even has a Mileage Coach which helps you improve your miles per gallon.
