Derale Engine Oil Cooler # D15405 Installation in 2009 Chevrolet Silverado LT 4WD


Would this oil cooler fit my 2009 Silverado LT 4WD with 5.3 V8 engine.

Engine oil coolers are not vehicle-specific so you can use as large a cooler as the space you have available to install it. The Derale # D15405 engine oil cooler is a highly-efficient Class V plate-fin cooler that measures 9-7/8- wide x 9-1/2- tall x 1-1/4-inches deep. If you have room in front of your A/C condenser to install this then it is an excellent choice.

This cooler uses a sandwich type adapter that installs where you oil filter now goes, and then the filter in turn installs to the adapter using one of the supplied thread inserts. You'll select the one to match the threads on your oil filter. You will need to make sure that there is enough space between the end of the filter and other surfaces to allow you to install the 2-inch adapter AND your oil filter. You may need to use a shorter filter; if so the linked instructions provide a list of compatible filter options.

You might want to refer to the linked article on coolers for additional information.
