Review of Flex-a-lite Transmission Coolers FLX4118V


Today we are going to take a look at the Flex-A-Lite Translife transmission cooler and guard kit. This cooler comes with the 3/8th inch barb fittings and has a class 3 rating. This TransLife transmission cooler kit will provide additional cooling to protect your automatic transmission. Cooler transmission oil will give you more reliable consistent shifts and it prevents your transmission from any damage under extreme towing conditions. The kit for the cooler would include the cooler itself four foot rubber hose and hose clamps, the male and female hose connectors, all the mounting hardware and a nice set of detailed installation instructions. The tubing itself is a half inch diameter brass tubing. What is nice is on this cooler, is on the inside of that tube they actually have a design called a high twist turbolator design. Basically what it does is it causes the fluid to twist as it goes through the passes here.

That will help improve the heat transfer. The fittings here on the inlet and outlet are both a 3/8th inch barb fitting. This is a six paths configuration. When they say that that basically means the fluid goes through here six times. You can see one, two, three, four, five, six. Now this is constructed of aerospace epoxy construction.

It is a class three rated cooler. I will give some dimensions on this. The overall width which is measured from the end of this tube to the end of this tube is going to be right at 15 inches. The height from the bottom the very top is right at seven and a half inches. The depth of the cooler is 3/4 inches deep. The guard that comes with it. This is the Flex-A-Lite cooler guard.

It fits the FLX 4118 transmission cooler. What is nice about this, these cooler guards are designed to protect your cooler from damage caused by rocks and road debris without compromising the cooler's ability to reduce your fluid temperatures. You can see how it fits right over the heat exchange portion of it. This kit for the guard will also include everything shown here. The aluminum cooler guard itself. These gator clips which are nice because when you go to install it and you use these gator clips, they go right over the tubes.

Then you use your bolts and spaces and what it actually allows is it will allow a inaudible 00:02:07 when you install this between the guard and the cooler to help with the cooling. It also comes with the four hose clamps. It comes with all the mounting hardware and again, a detailed set of installation instructions. Again, this cooler guard is designed specifically for this transmission cooler part number FLX 4118. I will give you a few dimensions on the guard itself. The width which I am going to measure from here to here, you can see it's right at 12 inches. The mounting tabs on each end extend out at about 3/4 of an inch. Your height is going to be right at seven and 3/4 inches tall. The width is going to be right . Or, the depth is going to be right at one inch deep. Again, just to show you basically when you go to install this onto your cooler, it just grabs on like that using that mounting hardware. It would protect your cooler itself. That should do it for the review on the Flex-A-Lite TransLife transmission cooler and guard kit. It has the 3/8th inch barb fittings and a class 3 rating.
