Review of Flex-a-lite Transmission Coolers FLX41186GMT


Today we're going to take a look at the Flex-a-Lite Translife Direct Fit Tube and Fin Transmission Cooler. This is designed to fit the 1999 to 2012 GM trucks and SUVs. Now this Translife transmission cooler kit provides additional cooling to protect your transmission. Transmission cooler can reduce your transmission oil temperature by as much as 30%, and of course cooler transmission oil will give you more reliable consistent shifts under extreme towing conditions, helps prevent any transmission damage. This is designed to mount in front of your radiator or air conditioning condenser. It is a direct fit application. The tubing in here, on the inside, they do have turbulators inside these tubes.

What that does is help circulate the oil as it goes through there to give you a superior heat transfer. It is a six pass configuration, and that's because the tubing goes through the condenser six times. One, two, three, four, five, and six. The tubing is 1/2" diameter tubing. If you notice on the inlet and outlet ends they do use number 6ANN fittings. This kit includes everything here shown on the table.

Includes the transmission cooler itself. The direct fit mounting brackets for the GM trucks and SUVs. The gator clips and the hardware for attaching the cooler to those brackets. Now the hardware kit will come with the bolts, the nuts, the spacers, and all the washer you need. Comes with some nylon cable ties, some hose clamps.

Over here is a couple of barbed reduction couplers. Here's a relocation bracket for your temperature sensor, and it give you a nice set of detailed instructions on how to install everything. Last thing I want to do is give you some measurements on this. We're going to give you overall width from this end to this end. You're going to be right at 15". The overall height, see if I can lift this up.

There we go. From the very bottom to the top is right at 7-1/2" tall. The depth of that is 3/4". That should do it for the review on the Flex-a-Lite Translife Direct Fit Tube and Fin Transmission Cooler.
