Preferred transmission cooler

I just bought a 2008 Honda Odyssey, and plan to add a transmission cooler. I'm hoping someone can point me towards a brand and model that they've had success with.

After you find one and know the price, check with JC Whitney Auto Parts & Auto Accessories - Car, Truck, Jeep, Motorcycle, VW, RV & ATV - Aftermarket Parts & Accessories to see if is less expensive there.

Shawn, We bought a 2014 Odyssey and ordered it with the transmission cooler. It is absolutely huge. It looks as large as the radiator. I'd consider one that large.

Good idea!

Here's some useful information from

Frequently Asked Questions About Transmission Coolers |

When I had my Dodge 1500 tranny rebuilt, the mechanic told me that there were 3 secrets to getting the most out of a tranny:
1. Add a tranny oil cooler
2. Service the tranny per recommended service intervals
3. If carrying much over a few hundred pounds, if towing anything, if going uphill, if going into a headwind....kick off the overdrive.

I've since put 190K on that tranny, so I'm believing he gave me great advice!!

Safe travels,

I put this one on my Tahoe this spring and my transmission runs an easy 20 degrees cooler. They have a number of sizes but I went with the largest that would fit.
