Best Transmission Cooler for a 2018 Ford Explorer  


Need a transmission cooler for a 2018 Ford Explorer 3.5 non turbo. Which kit would be the best one? And does it come with everything needed for the job including fittings, etc.?


Helpful Expert Reply:

The Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler Kit w/Barb Inlets - Class III - Efficient item # D13503 you were looking at is the best transmission cooler for your 2018 Ford Explorer. This is a larger stacked plate style cooler, which is very efficient. It is 11" wide x 8-3/4" tall x 7/8" deep. It includes a complete mounting kit with OEM spec hose, stainless steel clamps, and Insta-dapt radiator adapter. In regards to installation, these are universal kits which means exact instructions are not provided for specific vehicles. You should not need any other parts outside of what is included with the kit. I have linked an installation video below of a 2001 Explorer we had in the shop we installed this cooler on.
