Review of Flex-a-lite Transmission Coolers FLX4118R


Today we're going to take a look at the Flexalite Translife transmission oil cooler with the 3/8ths inch barb fittings and the J return and a Class 3 rating. Now this Translife transmission cooler kit will provide additional cooling to protect your automatic transmission from overheating. It is designed to mount in front of the radiator or the A/C condenser. Now cooler transmission oil will give you more reliable, consistent shifts and it helps prevent transmission damage which can happen under extreme towing conditions. This kit includes everything on the table. The transmission cooler, 4 foot rubber hose, the hose clamps, the male and female hose connectors, installation hardware for the cooler and a nice set of detailed installation instructions on how to install everything. The tubes on this, they use a 1/2 inch diameter brass tubing.

What's unique on this cooler is the inside, they do have a high-twist turbulator design. Basically what it is, is it causes the fluid as it goes through the tube to actually twist, and because it's twisting it helps improve the heat transfer. Does use the 3/8ths inch barb fittings right here and if you notice on this end it has the J-return design. Now this cooler is a 6 pass configuration. What they're saying there is that the fluid will go through the heat exchange 6 times. You can see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

Now this is an aerospace epoxy construction and the cooler is a Class 3 rated cooler. Do want to give you some dimensions. We'll do the width which will be from the edge to this edge of the tubes. You can see if we put a ruler it's going to be right at 15 inches wide. The height from the very bottom, very top is right at 7 1/2 inches tall. The depth on it is right at 3/4 of an inch deep. That should do it for the review on the Flexalite Translife transmission oil cooler with the 3/8ths inch barb fittings and the J-return and a Class 3 rating..
