Transmission Cooler Recommendations for 2005 Pontiac Vibe


Can you tell me if you have a cooler for an 05 Pontiac Vibe. Not GT.


Expert Reply:

A transmission cooler is not a vehicle-specific item, it can be installed on just about any vehicle that has an automatic transmission.

The best and most efficient place to install a cooler is directly behind the vehicle grille, in front of the radiator and A/C condenser. You'll want to choose the largest cooler that will fit in the space available. The cooler will tap into the return line from the radiator to the transmission, as shown in the help articles I've linked to.

If you have the available space, the 11x7-1/4 inch Derale Series 8000 Cooler, part # D13502 would work well. The included insta-dapt fitting works on most vehicles with 5/16 inch transmission lines.
