Derale Transmission Coolers

  • Tube-Fin Cooler
  • Small SUV
  • With 11/32 Inch Hose Barb Inlets
  • 13W x 7-1/2T x 3/4D Inch
  • Derale
  • Standard Mount

13" Wide x 7-1/2" tall x 3/4" deep, reliable, all-aluminum tube-and-fin cooler extends the life and improves overall functioning of your vehicle's transmission.


Features:

  • Improves functioning and overall performance of transmission
  • Extends life of transmission and prolongs period between necessary fluid changes
  • Cuts down on heat-related failures
  • Agitates fluid with built-in, embossed turbulators for more efficient cooling
  • Constructed of durable, lightweight aluminum
    • Thermal-conductive metal provides excellent transfer of heat
  • Includes:
    • High-temperature, OEM spec hose with stainless steel clamps
    • Nylon mounting rods
    • Insta-dapt radiator adapter
  • Recommended for small to mid-size trucks and SUVs
  • Imported


Specs:

  • Inlets: 11/32" hose barb
  • Overall dimensions: 13" wide x 7-1/2" tall x 3/4" deep
  • Core width: 10-1/8"
  • Distance between inlets: 6-1/4"
  • 1-Year warranty


Note: The Derale Insta-dapt radiator adapter fits most vehicles with 5/16" transmission lines, but not all. In some cases, additional fittings or alteration of the OEM lines or hoses may be required for installation.


Perhaps the simplest type of heat exchanger, the tube-fin effectively cools a variety of automotive systems. The concept is simple: Fluid cools as it travels through the core by transferring heat out to the fins. The fins then provide the surface area necessary for sufficient heat exchange to take place, allowing the heat pulled from the fluid to dissipate into the surrounding air. Quick, easy and effective.

Wanted to give my Honda better ability to handle a tow. this baby does the job. Transmission definitely cooler operation since the install. The install was simple and straight forward.

so far so great. Tho sometimes I have to remind the transmission service guys to add a bit more fluid then they are use to.

2009 Audi A6

I purchased this for my C6 Corvette A6 transmission. I did, however, bypass the radiator and only use the transmission cooler for the C6. I purchased and used the Derale Radiator Adapter fitting 259-13035 for both the top and bottom and just capped them off to keep debris out of the reservoir. I also had to make some custom mounting brackets. This is an excellent product and it keeps the tranny in a great temperature range.

2005 Honda Pilot

After one of use on a 2005 Honda Pilot, everything is holding up just fine. The one star less is because of the difficulty in installing it on this particular vehicle. Although this is a universal component, it is MUCH easier to install on pickup trucks. Best of luck with a brand new rubber hose going on with any sort of ease.

Our installers typically use some transmission fluid to make installing the rubber hose on the Insta-dapt fitting easier.



by:

Very easy install, absolutely no leaks anywhere in the system after putting it into service. I did have to get additional hose for the install due to the location I chose for the cooler (personal preference). I centered it on the bumper side of the radiator to provide the best air flow. Remember to get a quart of transmission fluid to accomodate the larger system volume after the install. I took my grill off to provide the most room for putting the cooler in rather than trying to wedge it between the radiator and grill, made install the nylon fasteners through the radiator and cooler much easier. Should last for many years.

Jeep Grand Cherokee

Can't say anything bad about the unit. It was installed in a Jeep Grand Cherokee that I use to haul trailers occasionally that weigh up to 6000 lbs. So far, I've never overheated the transmission at all, which I attribute to the addition of this cooler. Once again, thanks for a great product.



by:
1999 Toyota 4Runner

Ive got a 1999 4runner that had the unfortunate luck of having the integrated transmission cooler line rupture inside my radiator. needless to say, the transmission didnt agree very well with having engine coolant running through it and finally died out on me. I bought this transmission cooler to isolate the transmission and the engine cooling systems. The cooler arrived a day ahead of schedule, which is always a bonus. I didnt rate it at 5 stars because I havent had a chance to install it yet and see how it performs, but judging by the reviews that I have read so far, the customer service provided and the prompt delivery, I would say that this transmission cooler will keep my truck running for a good long while. Everything pictured arrived in the box and I have no doubt that it will perform as expected. I will definitely recommend this product and this company to my friends!



by:
2008 Chevrolet Silverado

This product is great and installation was not bad at all. Only issue I had was that the GM radiator adaptor should come with this unit when you purchase it for a GM truck. Not as an add-on. Thought I could get it at GM but no go. I Had to work with hoses over 30 min to get them over the fittings even with trans. fluid on the hose and male fitting. So far it looks like trans temp has dropped 30 dg.



by:

The part itself was easy to install and it does what it is designed to do. Only trouble with installation was with the vehicle, I had to remove part of the front cover on my 09' Avalanche to get to it. Also, I wish I had bought a black one to blend in with the rest of the radiator.



by:

The trans cooler was easy to install. I had to go and buy some more hose and mounting screws to make it work but I knew that before I started. The hose was because of where I wanted it mounted. The trans cooler is keeping the transmission about 30 to 40 deg cooler then before.



by:
2006 Chevrolet Colorado

for my 06 colorado with the 2.8l i4. also used the derale trans oil thermostat to help with warmup of trans fluid in winter. trans never gets above 190F now and the engine will overheat (212F) before the trans does. perfect upgrade for a light duty truck/van/car to provide a little bit of cooling at a compact size. very satisfied with the product



by:
2012 Nissan Rogue

I ordered this cooler for my daughter's 2012 Nissan Rogue to fix CVT transmission heating up causing it to into limp mode. When I got ready to install, I found there was no place to connect the hoses to the transmission. The vehicle only had the direct "bee hive" cooler. Install was delayed while waiting to get a "4 tube bee hive" from a different supplier for an additional $114.

We installed a tow package on our Ford Flex. The transmission cooler was challenging, but everything else went smoothly. The product works perfectly.

Installed on a 2002 chevy tracker with ease. very well made and all parts provided were well thought out for the installation.



by:

Nice inexpensive transmission cooler. Simple installation, although I didn't use the through radiator plastic ties supplied. Drops transmission temperatures well.



by:

The transmission cooler, along with all the other products I ordered from etrailer was an excellent buy. they arrived on time and in excellent condition. The best benefit of ordering from etrailer is the superior customer service. I was even able to talk directly with one of their installers when I had a question.

The tranny cooler was really simple to install. Everything you need is in the kit.It took about 45 minutes.
Great product. Delivery was quick.
Thanks to all, no picture at this time, trucks on the road.

  • Trailer Hitch, Ball Mount kit, Trailer Wiring, and Transmission Cooler for a 2007 Toyota Sienna
    I can certainly make some recommendations for a towing set up on your 2007 Toyota Sienna. Starting with a trailer hitch, the most popular hitch for your vehicle is Draw-Tite # 75237. This is a Class III hitch rated for 4,000 pounds gross trailer weight, 400 pounds tongue weight. The trailer you plan to tow is right at this limited. If there is any way you can reduce the weight of the trailer some, it would be more ideal. I have included a link to the installation details and a video showing...

  • Transmission Cooler for 2017 Ram 1500
    The Derale Series 6000 cooler part # D12906 would work on your 2017 Ram 1500. For a truck I wouldn't' recommend this as my first choice as it's a little on the smaller size and not the most efficient of designs. Instead I would have recommended something like the # D13503 which is much more efficient at cooling.

  • Transmission Cooler for 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    The Derale # D12906 is a universal-fit aftermarket part that will fit your 2007 Grand Cherokee if the space behind the grille and in front of the A/C condenser and radiator can accommodate its 13 by 7-3/4 inch dimensions. If the available space is to small to allow installation of the D12906, we have smaller plate-fin style coolers like part # D13502 that are actually more efficient at cooling your transmission fluid. This cooler would typically be installed so it would be last in line...

If it's the engine you're wanting to cool, you can grab this kit # D15605 which comes with a sandwich adapter with multiple thread sizes to ensure that it will thread into your Tacoma. If you're wanting to add an oil cooler to your 2010 Toyota Tacoma, you won't need the Derale Thermostatic Sandwich Adapter # D25720. All you need is a cooler like this one # D12906.

    You could go with the Lippert 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver for Campers and Trailers # LC730647 you were looking at, but because this only hitch has a 300-lb tongue weight rating I believe there is a better solution. I recommend going with the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Receiver # 13703 , because it has a slightly higher 350-lb tongue weight capacity.

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2005 Acura MDX Towing a 3,750 Pound Boat and Trailer
    The Class of transmission cooler you use will depend more on where you can mount it. The most efficient place is in front of the AC condenser. You could then use a Class I cooler, like # D12901. If mounted behind the condenser, I would go with a Class II like # D12906. If mounted behind the radiator I would go with a Class III like # D13502. The problem is that the further away from the front of the vehicle a cooler is mounted, the less airflow it receives. The less airflow a coolers...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2008 Honda Pilot
    The main differences between the available transmission coolers is the style of the coolers and the size. There are style that are more efficient that others, and obviously the bigger the cooler the more efficient it is as well. The tube-and-fin style has a tube that carries the transmission fluid through the cooler. It is also distinguished by its turbulators, which agitate the fluid to get more of it to contact the aluminum in the tube. Aluminum fins are attached to the outside of the...

  • Recommendation For Transmission Cooler On A 1995 Nissan Parthfinder 4X4
    To determine what kind of transmission cooler you will need depends on how much weight you will be towing and where you will be towing. If you will be towing a light load, less than 2,000 pounds, in flat driving conditions, your 1995 Nissan Pathfinder 4x4 will do fine with a Class I rated cooler. If you will be towing more than a 2,000 pound load through some hills, I would use a Class II or Class III cooler. I would recommend the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler, part...

  • Will Using Weight Distribution System Improve Engine Performance on 1989 Toyota 4Runner When Towing
    The main purpose of a weight distribution system would be to reduce sway and the strain on rear suspension, as well as improve steering, when towing your Vintage travel trailer with your 1989 Toyota 4Runner. Using a weight distribution system really is a great idea but it would not have any affect on the performance of your engine.

  • Recommended Derale Transmission Cooler for 2012 Toyota RAV4 with 3.5L V6 Engine
    Adding a supplementary transmission cooler to a vehicle that tows a trailer is a great way to reduce the thermal stress on the transmission. For your 2012 Toyota RAV4 with the V6 engine the most popular cooler is the Class III Derale # D13503, and this also happens to offer the highest cooling efficiency of all such products available for your RAV4. This is a complete kit with all needed parts. I linked a couple of help articles on the topic of transmission coolers.

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder 4X4 SE and 6K Trailer
    For a trailer weighing 6,000 pounds I recommend going with a stacked-plate cooler because they will be the most efficient and will provide the best cooling compared to the other cooler options. For a kit you can use # D13403. For the best cooling you can get a cooler that comes with its own fan like # D13950. This will provide the optimum cooling no matter where the unit is mounted. I have included a link to our FAQ article on transmission coolers for you.

  • Does a Transmission Cooler Need A Thermal Bypass for Sub-Freezing Weather
    I have not ran into any issues where there was a thermal bypass needed for below freezing temperatures when using the Derale Dyno-Cool Tube-Fin Transmission Cooler part # D12906. There is a lot of heat generated when all of the parts get moving in there and a cool transmission is a happy transmission. I can't see the cooler over cooling the fluids to a point that there would be any negative effects. For your power steering I rarely see the need to cool it. Even when hauling a trailer you...

Since the dry weight of the trailer is 4300 lbs more than likely you will be right at the towing capacity of the Mountaineer when the trailer is loaded.

    For your 2012 Toyota RAV4 the Derale cooler part # D12906 would be a great option. We normally recommend going with the largest cooler that will fit in front of the radiator. In the case of this cooler it measures 13" Wide x 7-1/2" tall x 3/4" so you would need to measure the available room you have. A more efficient cooler that's a bit smaller is the part # D13503 which measures 11" Wide x 8-3/4" tall x 7/8" deep.
