I used this product when retro fitting an automatic transmission into a classic car originally equipped with a manual transmission. It works great and the fact that it is MADE IN USA is wonderful. The install was easy and straight forward, and everything neccessary for the intall was included. Couldn't be any easier.

I find myself in a not so desirable situation where I have to have a pickup for home renovations, but not having the luxury of another (smaller) car to make my 100 mile round trip commute. So I like to take good care of my truck, it wasn't exactly made for 90 mph highway use. The transmission temps used to get up into the 170s on hot days. Now I average 140 with the occasional spike at 150 if hauling.

            I installed the transmission cooler on a 2006 Saturn Vue with the Honda 6cyl. engine and transmission. We use it to tow our camper. It is imperative to keep the transmission fluid cool in the Honda transmission and this cooler mor than handles the job. It is not extremely difficult to install, but you do need at least average mechanic skills. Removing the left front tire and plastic dirt shield makes getting to the oil lines very easy. Also it give you access to the transmission oil drain plug. Dislodging the A/C condenser is not overly difficult to mount the new cooler on to it. The hardest part of the install was filiing the transmission with fresh fluid through the 3/8 inch fill tube where the dip stick is located.

                Comments about Imperial High Performance Transmission Oil Cooler:

                Installed it on a dodge grand caravan. Taking the grill of the van took some time, but the actual installation of the cooler was easy. The only problem that I had was trying to find the right connectors to hook up the cooler to the existing transmission line. There seems to be no one that sells any type of compression fitting with the right size barb that will fit into the hose that was included in the kit. I ended up getting a compression fitting with a slightly smaller barb fitting and double clamping the barb side. So far no leaks. Its been installed for about a month now.

                          Happy to help you with your question Joe! This oil cooler was designed for transmission fluid and that is what it should be used for. Engine oil coolers are thicker than transmission oil coolers, the tubing inside is larger and the fins are longer because engine oil is thicker in viscosity than transmission fluid.

                          A:

                          A transmission oil cooler is a small, finned radiator that circulates warm oil to stabilize the temperature of the transmission. It is normally placed in front of the primary engine coolant radiator, directly in the path of incoming cool air. The average backyard mechanic can install a transmission oil cooler in about an hour. Remove the grille on the vehicle to access the engine radiator. Some models allow limited access underneath the vehicle, or through the engine compartment. Position the oil cooler radiator in front of the engine radiator and secure it with zip ties through the fins of the engine radiator. The oil cooler does not weigh much, and does not put too much stress on the fins. Most models have enough space to mount the cooler without blocking the main engine fan, but check the clearance for at least 2 inches of gap. Make sure to place the cooler so that you can connect the lines without obstruction. Connect the rubber adapter lines to the nipples on the oil cooler radiator by pushing the rubber over the line nipple, then turning the screw-type hose clamps clockwise until they are tight. The upper line is the intake, and the lower line the output, to make better use of gravity. Run the short rubber hoses to the location chosen for the steel lines. Secure the long steel lines to the frame rail, or a convenient location where they follow the best possible path from the oil cooler to the transmission. They are typically secured with zip ties or tap-screwed mounts. Connect the rubber adapter lines to the steel lines by pushing each hose over the relative line, then turning the hose clamp screws clockwise. Attach the steel lines to the transmission by turning the line screws clockwise onto the transmission's line openings. In some cases, drilling holes in the side of the transmission oil pan and transmission housing (to mount line thread nuts) may be necessary. This involves removing the pan by turning the mounting bolts counterclockwise and machining it away from the vehicle; place one hole in the front of the pan and one in the top of the housing so that the warm fluid can use the pressure of the transmission pump to push it through the cooling lines. The placement of the top hole varies depending on the model of the transmission; see the manufacturer's documentation. Typically it is drilled or placed directly in front of the transmission pump. Fill the transmission fluid to the proper level, compensating for the extra capacity of the cooling radiator. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

                          Yes, this part fits for your 1998 Chevrolet Pickup C/K Series and mounting the cooler in front of the radiator and the air conditioning condenser is typically considered the best place. Imperial High Performance coolers are designed to provide outstanding cooling as well as complement other high-performance accessories.
