Transmission Cooler Repair Service

Serving Vancouver WA | Camas | Orchards | Battle Ground

Transmission Cooler Repair Service by All Transmissions & Clutches serving Vancouver WAMost transmission failures are caused by overheating transmission coolers, and even the heavy-duty cooling systems fitted to modern SUV’s and pickup trucks are not always able to cope with soaring summer temperatures or the demands of towing or stop-and-go traffic. Adding an auxiliary transmission cooler may be wise for vehicle owners who haul or tow heavy loads regularly, face traffic congestion on a daily basis or have modified their cars or trucks to the point where factory transmission cooling systems are no longer sufficient.

Transmissions work best when temperatures are kept below 170 degrees, and every 20 degree increase can shorten the lifespan of a transmission by as much as 50 percent. Transmission coolers are fitted in front of the radiator or air conditioning compressor, and they can prevent overheating, extend the life of transmissions and prevent costly repairs.

The experts at All Transmissions & Clutches have been working on transmissions and coolers for more than 30 years, and they can help vehicle owners to determine whether or not auxiliary cooling is called for. Our technicians are familiar with plate and fin, tube and fin and stacked plate transmission coolers, and they have the experience to know just how to fit them. Space is often tight under the hoods of modern cars, trucks and SUVs, and this can make fitting transmission coolers or performing transmission cooler line repairs difficult for technicians less familiar with the work.

Types of Transmission Coolers

Transmissions and coolers are designed to work together, and there are several types available. The technicians at All Transmissions & Clutches can help you to choose the transmission cooler appropriate for your car or truck’s gross vehicle weight rating and your driving needs. They can also perform transmission cooler line repairs on foreign and domestic vehicles.

  • Plate and fin trans coolers contain parallel plates and look just like miniature radiators. While these coolers are generally no larger than tube and fin coolers, the addition of plates increases their surface area and improves their cooling efficiency.
  • Stacked plate trans coolers are extremely efficient because of their large fins. They are also durable and usually simple to install. This may be the best option for work trucks or tow vehicles.
  • Coolers with built-in auxiliary fans offer the most cooling power, and they can also be used in situations where mounting the unit in front of the vehicle’s radiator is not an option. These units can also be set up to continue operating even when a vehicle is stopped.
