Because of the tremendous heat generated in an automatic transmission, an auxiliary transmission oil cooler is an economical way to help protect against costly transmission repairs. Automatic transmission fluid (ATF) cools, lubricate sand cleans internal transmission components. When transmission temperatures exceed 93°C, the ability of ATF to perform is greatly diminished.Subsequently, the life span of the fluid, seals and moving parts are significantly reduced. Higher internal temperatures also increase the wear rate of the friction and clutch plates.Davies, Craig transmission oil coolers can reduce the ATF’s temperature by as much as 33°C. A reduction of just 11°C can double the life of an automatic transmission, the fluid and all internal parts.
- Excessive transmission heat is caused byte following driving conditions:
- Stop-and-go traffic
- Carrying loads
- Hot driving conditions
- Driving in sand or snow
Two types of transmission oil coolers are available:
Ultra-Cool® with tube and fin style construction
Hydra-Cool® with plate and fin style construction
All Davies, Craig transmission oil coolers are 100% pressure tested to ensure the reliability and durability of the product. Both Ultra-Cool® and Hydra-Cool® come complete with the necessary accessories and instructions for quick and easy installation.
