Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2004 Nissan Frontier


I have a 2004 Nissan Frontier SC crew cab pickup with automatic transmission and AC. Currently it does not have a transmission oil cooler except for the one in the radiator Im planning on towing and 5000 lb RV trailer with it. Which transmission cooler do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

Unless you live in the north where it gets super-cold, we typically recommend getting the largest cooler that will fit in the available space. The best location to mount the cooler is directly behind the grille in front of the radiator. I'd recommend going with the 11x8-3/4 inch Derale # D13503. The # D13504 would also be a good choice, but I'd recommend measuring to be sure you have 11x12 inches of available space on the front of your radiatior.

I've linked to an install video and some help articles about transmission coolers which I hope you'll find helpful.
