Recommended Transmission Cooler for 2013 Ford Explorer


I have a 2013 Ford Explorer Sport and would like to add a transmission cooler to it. Can you give me some recomendations. Thanks

Transmission coolers are universal items. What you will need to do is find out how much room you have to work with in front of your radiator and find a transmission cooler that will fit your application. Choosing a large cooler like part # D13502, would be a good choice for your 2013 Ford Explorer, because you cannot over-cool a transmission.

Part # D13502 has significantly more cooling ability than your factory set up. If you are towing a load, up to 5,000 pounds, this transmission cooler will be a significant improvement for your transmission. The new cooler goes inline with the old cooler. The fluid will follow this path: transmission, factory cooler, new aftermarket cooler, back to transmission. You would disconnect the factory return line at the transmission. That line runs to the new cooler and you have a new line from the new cooler back to the transmission.

You might also be interested in a combination cooler like part # D15902, which is both a transmission and oil cooler in one.
