11" Wide x 7-1/4" tall x 7/8" deep, efficient heat exchanger will prolong the life of your transmission and improve its overall performance. Specifically designed for Honda Pilots with late-model, electronic overdrive transmissions.


Features:

  • Prolongs life of transmission
  • Improves overall performance
  • Prevents heat-related failures
  • Has furnace-brazed aluminum construction and 3/4" wide turbulator plates for more efficient cooling
  • Includes complete mounting kit, OEM spec hose with stainless steel clamps and Insta-dapt radiator adapter
  • Recommended for mid-size cars, trucks and SUVs


Specs:

  • Inlets: 11/32" hose barb
  • Overall dimensions: 11" wide x 7-1/4" tall x 7/8" deep
  • Distance between inlets: 10-1/4"
  • Mounting dimensions: 6-1/8" tall by either 5-1/4" or 6-3/4" wide

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.


One of the more popular cooling systems available, the radiator-style, plate-and-fin heat exchanger provides increased surface area so that fluids can spread out along the finned chambers to cool faster. In addition to the increased surface area, this cooler also features turbulator technology, whereby fluids are agitated continuously, not only to facilitate heat transfer, but also to prevent any undesirable drop in pressure.

Toyota FJ Cruiser

I installed this trans cooler in a Toyota FJ cruiser that I use for occasional towing of trailers/loads up to about 4500 lb. The cooler, of course, is hidden away in the engine compartment so I don't really see it. It does the job I expected, keeping the trans fluid within range with no drama. I am quite satisfied with it and recommend it.


Comments
Still working, no issues at all. I use the FJ to tow an overlanding trailer and occasionally a flatbed with a tractor on it. No increase in transmission temp for either situation. So the cooler works. Its just there. No drama, no issues.

2006 Toyota Sienna

I installed this cooler on our 2006 Sienna to extend its life while towing our R-Pod 172 trailer. It appears to be doing its job, and after a year everything is still in it's place. Installation required a tiny bit of tinkering to route the hoses and zip ties, but it all went about as expected. The job was done in an afternoon (I am handy enough, but definitely not a car mechanic). I did wrap and tape some sheet metal around parts of the hoses to protect them from getting cut where they would otherwise be pushed against sharp edges. See photos.

As far as I know, it's working well. I did the install so I could tow with my 2011 Honda Odyssey. I paired it with an etrailer power steering cooler. Install was fairly smooth. I had more issues with broken fairing fasteners than I did with this cooler. I used a bluetooth ODB reader to keep tabs on transmission temps while towing a small 4x6 enclosed trailer approx 400mi one-way. Empty weight was around 300lbs, we may have filled it to 1K lbs. Temps were in the mid-upper 80*f range, all highway driving along mostly flat roads. I did a lot of googling to try and find aceptable temps, good luck. Later on I used a small utility trailer to move an entire 3K Sq ft home. Distance was approx 1/4 mile (close by). Transmission temps remained good after many round trips. Fluid color remained acceptable.

I had this installed in my 2008 Nissan Titan to prevent transmission overheating. My Titan has the big tow package, max tow is 9,400 lbs and comes with a factory transmission cooler but it just wasn't enough to keep the gauge out of the hot zone when towing heavy. After installing this I pulled my 5000lb 27ft camper in 104 degree heat up hills and with a head wind, the gauge never left the normal temp range area. I would buy again. I do recommend this transmission cooler for additional protection against heat.

where is the cooler on a 1994 eagle vision
-- comment by: Irvin - 10/03/2014

Most passenger cars do not have factory installed transmission coolers, including the Vision in all likelihood. On that car you will find a radiator for cooling the engine block and an A/C compressor condensor. If the Vision did have one, it would be integrated into the radiator at one of th corners.

Went in as described in instructions and video. I have no way to be sure of its performance but I have had no problems towing a ~3000 lb trailer with it in place. It is twice the size of the factory cooler (no longer available) so it should be very effective.

2006 Toyota Tacoma

Excellent transmission cooler with fairly easy installation. I chose to mount mine to brackets in front of the radiator rather than by pushing mounting rods through the radiator condenser. Plans for my 4-cyl Tacoma were initially for pulling a utility trailer out to my land and back. Wife wanted to get an RV and take trips. All of my purchases and installations from etrailer were based on the expert advice from the sales people. And, I actually purchased and installed all the parts before we bought an RV. This shows you that the installation videos are spot on. I could never hook up a trailer and 'try it out'. But everything worked perfectly. I kept all the weights under limit, used a weight distribution hitch, brake controller, Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, and side mirrors, along with the class III hitch, and 4 pin and 7 pin wiring harness that I installed. My Tacoma is only rated for towing 3500# but we never had a problem pulling a 3000# load. 65 was tops on the speed and that was on a straight road. My scan gauge indicated that my transmission temp stayed at 165 except for when we traveled through stop and go city traffic. Then it rose to 185/190 for short times. Back on the road and it dropped to 165/170 a gain. I was really impressed with this little cooler.

Cooler came just in time. I installed it in my 2010 Subaru Forester so that I can safely pull my trailer without boiling my transmission. Glad to say I needed no special fittings to get the job done. The cooler looks well made and the size is just right...anything bigger would be a tough fit.

2007 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

The cooler is a great add-on to help guarantee the life of my transmission in my 2007 Chevy Trailblazer. The size was perfect for mounting just behind my grill and well in front of the stock radiator with barely any modification/trimming of the surrounding plastic. I have no real world temperatures but I am happy knowing the the temps in my transmission are at least a little bit cooler. The only mist-step is the included mounting pieces. While handy to get things in place after forgetting to pick-up bolts, washers and nuts, the plastic ties really didn't hold up well for the 2 weeks until I removed them. They also don't play well with the bendable mounting kit unless you have something to eat up the space when the ties are tightened as far as they can go. Again, it's minor and had I remembered to purchase the hardware I eventually used prior to the actual install, I probably wouldn't even be writing this. Also, the hose is certainly not long enough for my application.

I have is d Etrailer 8 or 9 times. Everything I've ever bought from Etrailer has been great. The installation videos alone are great, but the the thought that goes into the gagets they ship with the hitches to get the job done at home is amazing. There customer service is great also. I didn't need one of the parts I purchased so I returned it with no issues or hassle. Thank you!!! It's rare to find a company with values like yours. Zack

Had an automatic transmission that would overheat pulling a trailer up a steep grade on rough dirt roads. Put a deeper aluminum oil pan on it but still had the problem. This cooler has cured that problem. Wasn't too bad to install. It didn't come with enough hose for my application though so I deducted a star

So far so good. Just installed the cooler a couple days ago getting ready for a move trailing a full load for 1000mi. Install guide and descriptions are very generic and therefore require a bit forethought and pre-work. Will see how the product will hold up in the long run. Shipping and transactions with etrailer have been excellent once again.

2013 GMC Canyon

Purchased this product for my 2013 Nissan SV as was pulling a 23 ft RV on a 6500 mile out west trip from Fl. to NY, via Grand Canyon, Yellow Stone NP, and Mt. Rushmore. Had some 7% & 8% Mts. to climb, so put extra cooler on as protection. Granted, this was a second cooler, but for the money, figured well worth it. The whole trip went absolutely problem free. Trans. never got above normal operating temp. Sooooooo--for my money, this product performed better than i presumed it would. If your not sure if you need it, for the cost, but it anyway. Installation very simple, and results speak for themselves.

Chevrolet Traverse

This was recommended by etrailer for my Traverse. It was fairly easy to install, (mostly with help from YouTube videos). I took my time and it took about 3 hours. If I did it again it could probably be done in an hour or less. It's been a year of towing an 18' ski boat and it has totally done the job. That adapter that is recommended with this is vital as far as I can tell.

1989 Oldsmobile 88

I received my cooler for my 1989 Olds 88 in record time (e.g. 2 days)! After reading the instructions, I saw that the manufacturer recommends the cooler be installed in series with the cooler integral to the cars radiator. This requied addtional hose (about 3ft.). The local auto parts store carried 5/16" hose (same hose ID but a different mfr than that supplied) but found the auto parts store hose next to impossilbe to place over the cooler header fitting. I was able to install a clamp before the tubing walked itself off. I would recommend taking the cooler to the parts store and fit it up with a hose that fits properly if you need to get extra for installation. I appreciated the video that was available on your website to familiarize myself with the installation before I attempted the project. I have yet to put it to the test with a trailer in tow. Seems to be quality product. The instructions were well written. Thanks!

2007 Honda Odyssey

Just installed this today on 2007 Honda Odyssey. JUST enough hose. Enough hose clamps if you reuse the factory ones on the trans connections. Did not need to take the bumper or bumper cover off, just the grill, and top and bottom covers. However, this makes it very difficult to get those zip rods attached. It was possible, but I had to get my tiny wife to fit her hands down there for the bottom ones. Now, lets see if it will save my tranny when I start towing 3500 lbs for 2 months and 4000 miles... will have to report back then and give a real rating then.

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2005 Honda Pilot
    The best way to pick out a transmission cooler for a vehicle like your 2005 Honda Pilot would be to go with the biggest one that will fit the available space the vehicle has in front of the radiator/AC condenser. I would go with the # D13503 over the # D13502 that you referenced as long as you have the room for it. This cooler measures 11W x 8-3/4T x 7/8D Inch. I attached an install video that shows this cooler being installed on a similar Honda as yours.

I'd go with the larger Derale # D13503 as it will do a really great job keeping your transmisssion fluid cool. It measures 11" Wide x 8-3/4" tall x 7/8" deep and is the very efficient plate fin style of cooler.

  • What is Meant by the Different Classes of Transmission Coolers
    Transmission and oil coolers are given class designations since we are in the towing business and those who tow are used to seeing class designations on hitches, ball mounts, etc. The idea is to give a general idea of the cooler's capacity, so if your vehicle has a class III hitch then a class III cooler should be fine.

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation For 2011 Ford Escape
    I spoke with Ford and they told me that there would be no problem adding a transmission cooler to your 2011 Ford Escape. You will want to check your owner's manual on recreational towing for any restrictions.

The part # D13502 measures 11" Wide x 7-1/4" tall x 7/8" deep and would be a great choice. I would however recommend going with the bigger part # D13503 since we know it will fit and we videoed the install of this on a similar Honda Pilot like your MDX.

  • 2005 Toyota Highlander Brake Controller and Install Recommendation
    You can install a brake controller in your 2005 Toyota Highlander, but there isn't a plug-in harness available for your vehicle since it does not come pre-wired for a controller like some vehicles do. You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 118413.
