Review of Flex-a-lite Transmission Coolers FLX4110RV


Today we're going to take a look at the Flex-a-Lite Translife transmission cooler and guard kit. It has the 3/8 inch barbed fittings with the J return and has a Class 1 rating. Now this Translife transmission cooler kit will provide additional cooling to protect your automatic transmission. Cooling your transmission oil will give you more reliable consistent shifts and it prevents transmission damage under extreme towing conditions. Now this kit will include everything shown here. For the cooler, it will include the cooler, a 4-foot rubber hose, the hose clamps, male and female adapters, the mounting hardware for the cooler and nice set of detailed instructions. On the cooler itself, the tube here are .5 inch diameter brass tubes.

And what's nice is on the inside of these tubes they actually use a high twist turbulator design so it causes the liquid as it goes through there to actually twist as it goes through and that improves the heat transfer. You notice it does have the 3/8 inch barbed fittings on each inlet and outlet and it has the J return up here at the top right here. This is a 4-pass configuration and basically what that's telling you is the fluid goes through 4 times, 1, 2, 3, 4, you can see. It is an aerospace epoxy construction and the cooler is a Class 1 rated cooler. We want to give you a few dimensions on this. The overall from this edge to this edge, we put a ruler on it, you can see it's going to be right at 12 inches.

The height from the very bottom to the top is right at 5 inches. And the depth is .75 of an inch. Now this kit also comes with the guard, the cooler guard and basically this is for the Flex-a-Lite FLX4110R transmission cooler, which is this one right here. Now, these cooler guards they're designed to protect your cooler from damage cause by rocks and road debris without compromising the cooler's ability to reduce the fluid temperature. You can see it's designed to fit over just like that. Now, the guard kit includes all this hardware also.

It includes the aluminum cooler guard, the gator clips which are nice, they're designed to go around the tubes and then you put your bolt in there. And what that does is it is a spacer that you would use, that would provide an air gap when you put this guard over the cooler, it'll provide an air gap in there to help with the cooling features. It also comes with the 4-hose clamps, it comes with all the mounting hardware and some zip ties and also a set of installation instructions for the cooler. And, again, this cooler guard is specifically for this transition cooler, the FLX4110R. And I do want to give you the dimensions for the guard itself. We're gong to measure width from here to here.

So, if we put the ruler here right at 9 inches. Now, the mounting tabs, each of them extend out about .75 of an inch on each side. The height on the guard itself is right at 5.5 inches. And the depth on the guard is right at 1 inch. So, again, just to show you here's your cooler when you have it installed and your guard will go over it just like that to protect it. But that should do it for the Flex-a-Lite Translife transmission cooler and guard kit with the 3/8 inch barbed fittings and the J return and a Class 1 rating.
