What size transmission cooler do I need?
You should get the biggest heavy duty transmission cooler that can fit on your car! The larger the cooler, the better it will be at lowering fluid temperature. The plate and fin and the stacked plate coolers offer a larger surface area to cool transmission fluid faster and better, which is why they are so popular.
What type of transmission cooler do I need?

Do aftermarket transmission coolers work?
No. As long as it is properly installed, a transmission cooler will not affect a factory transmission. It is a flow-through device and does not affect any internal components of the transmission. A transmission cooler will just help to prolong the life of the transmission by keeping the fluid cooler.
Can I add a transmission cooler to my truck?
Some equipment can be added aftermarket, but it may not be truly equivalent, and in some cases it may not be practical. It depends on the equipment: a hitch can normally be added later, but enhancements such as transmission and engine cooling provisions are better included from the factory.
Should I fit a transmission cooler?
For every 20F degree drop in transmission fluid temperature, you can expect to extend the fluid and equipment life, thereby extending the life of the vehicle. That’s why it is very important to have a quality transmission cooler, and more importantly, to have it professionally installed.
Do all automatic transmissions have coolers?
Does your car have a transmission cooler? Most vehicles with automatic transmissions have some type of transmission cooler built in. If you have a manual transmission in a normal passenger vehicle that is not exposed to extreme or heavy-duty service, a transmission cooler is not necessary.
Does it matter which transmission cooler line goes where?
Generally the higher line on the radiator has fluid going INTO the transmission and the lower one goes back to the transmission, so the higher line has fluid coming out of it and the lower line sucks it back into the transmission.
How much does it cost to install a transmission cooler?
As a DIY project, you’ll pay between $30 and $60 for the oil cooler and spend 1 1/2 to 2 hours on installation. You can have a local transmission shop install a transmission oil cooler in your vehicle. Expect to pay between $150 and $250 for the job.
How can I make my transmission cooler?
Allowing the car to idle in neutral, while sitting at red lights, in congested traffic or at rail road tracks, reduces the strain on the transmission, allowing the transmission to cool.
Does the 2021 D Max have a transmission cooler?
The TransChill Transmission cooler kit TC601DPK fits Isuzu D-Max and MU-X models and is designed specifically to reduce excessive transmission heat caused by towing, carrying loads and driving in sand, snow, off-road or hot conditions.

Should I bypass radiator transmission cooler?
IMHO it is better to bypass the built-in cooler. This is because the transmission adds heat to the cooling system, and you want the engine to run at a constant temp, but depending on road conditions, the transmission may opr may not be running hot. Therefore you want a separate cooling system fo r the transmission.
Should transmission cooler be before or after radiator?
Expert Reply: The biggest reason that transmission cooler manufacturers and vehicle manufacturers want transmission coolers installed after the factory cooler rather than before it is because the transmission cooler in the radiator is surrounded by the coolant in the radiator.
