Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2004 Nissan Frontier Flat Towing a 1997 Geo Tracker  


I am going to be towing a 1997 Geo Tracker with my 2004 Nissan frontier. My frontier has a tow rating of 5000#. I am wondering what transmission cooler should I get?


Expert Reply:

The best way to pick out a transmission cooler is to check out the area in front of the radiator to determine how big of a transmission cooler would fit in the available space. The bigger the cooler you can fit the better. Especially since you plan on towing something as heavy as a vehicle.

The Derale Transmission Cooler part # D13501 that you referenced is a smaller plate and fin cooler that would work decently, but I would go with a bigger one if you can fit it.

If you have the room I would go with the Derale Transmission Coolers # D13502. This cooler measures 11 inches wide by 7-1/4 inches tall with a 7/8 of inch thickness. I attached an install video for this cooler for you to check out and an FAQ article that covers transmission coolers.

I also attached an FAQ on flat towing since you said you will be flat-towing a vehicle.
