Review of Flex-a-lite Transmission Coolers FLX4112V


Today we're going to take a look at the Flex-a-lite Translife transmission cooler and guard kit. The cooler has 3/8 inch barbed fittings and is a class 1 rated cooler. This kit will include everything shown here on the table. It's basically the cooler kit with the guard kit, all combined. We're going to start with the cooler. The Translife transmission cooler kit will provide additional cooling to protect your automatic transmission. Basically when you cool the transmission oil will give you more reliable consistent shifts and it prevents transmission damage under extreme towing conditions. The kit for the cooler will include the cooler itself. inaudible 00:00:34 rubber hose and the hose clamps.

The male and female hose adapters. All the mounting hardware and nice set of installation instructions. The tubing on this cooler is the half inch diameter tubing. Inside the tubing they do use a high twist turbulator design and basically what that does is it will cause the fluid to twists as it goes through there and the reason they do that is to improve the heat transfer as it goes through. The fitting are 3/8 inch barbed fittings. This is a four pass configuration. You can see one, two, three, four.

So it goes through there, four different times, the fluid. The cooler is aerospace epoxy construction. This is a class 1 rated cooler. I give you some measurements on the cooler itself. The width from the edge here to the edge here is going to be right at 15 inches. The height from the very bottom to the top is right at 5 inches and the depth is 3/4 of an inch deep. On to the guard.

This is the cooler guard for this transmission cooler. The guards are designed to protect the cooler from damage that can be caused by the rocks and road debris. Without compromising the cooler ability to reduce fluid temperatures the guard will just go right over, just like that. The kit for the guard includes the guard itself. It includes these gator clips that when you do install it on to the cooler they will mount and it keeps .. Basically what it does it provides an air gap between the guard and the cooler. The gator clips when you use them.

These will bolt around the tube and then you put the screw in there and it will give you a gap there. It also comes with four hose clamps on this kit. Comes with all the mounting hardware, again a nice set of instructions. This cooler guard is designed to fit just this FLX 4112 cooler. I'll give you a few dimensions on the guard itself. The width, and I am going to measure from here to here not including the mounting tabs, about 12 inches. The mounting tabs are about 3/4 of an inch. They stick out on each side. We've got 12 inches wide. We've got about 5 and a quarter inches tall and it is about one inch deep. Just to show you. Your cooler will be installed and then the guard will go right over it and just like that protect the heat exchanger from any damage to those fins. That should do it for the review of the Flex-a-lite Translife transmission cooler and guard kit as 3/8 barbed fittings and a class 1 rating.
