I have a Ford Expedition 2003 Eddie Bauer> Does it have a transmission cooler or which one of these would you recommend?

I have a 95 dodge dakota with a 5.3 v8. Which one of these would i need? Thanks!

I have a 2013 V6 Ford Edge, on which I will have your tow package installed . I have been told that if the tow pkg was not installed by factory, then trailer GSVW is less because oil gets too hot. IF I have your HD cooler installed, will that be as good as factory installed unit, and thereby increase my towing weight capability?

–sue 4/30/2014 6:54:00 PM

Our hitch pro writes "Ford states .... 13238 Transmission cooler does provide more cooling space than the factory installed unit, however, the factory installed tow package may include additional cooling fans and radiator space. Please check with the vehicle manufacturer regarding the requirements for added towing capacities."

I have a 2000 Lincoln Town Car (4.6 litre' V-8) and I plan on towing a light to medium personl trailer or small "camping trailer", what would be the best hitch and accessories for me.

–Bill Boddy 8/14/2014 2:21:11 AM

"Towing a camping trailer requires a hitch, ball mount, ball, trailer wiring harness and transmission cooler. Some camping trailers also require an electronic brake control, charge line, sway control and possibly a suspension upgrade for the towing vehicle.

Can this be easily installed on a 2001 Volvo V70 wagon? Would it be beneficial for towing a 17' Boston Whaler outboard boat? I feel like the car is under some stress particularly when pulling the boat from the water on a boat ramp.

I have a F-150 Harley Davidson Edition with an OEM class II tow bumper. The truck was factory lowered a couple of inches with a soft smooth riding suspension. Will a class III/IV tow hitch & transmission cooler fit OK under this set-up? Also, what is typically done to keep a vehicle with a dragging tail consistently level in both towing and non towing modes?

–BB 2/9/2015 1:07:00 PM

"Typically the use of an air bag suspension kit is recommended for leveling with and without towing a trailer, however, you may also still need the help of a weight distribution kit. U-Haul offers several hitches and transmission coolers to fit your Ford F-150 Harley Davidson Edition, for a free towing inspection as well as complete parts and pricing, please visit your local U-Haul hitch center."

GA, I have a 2003 Saturn Vue my service engine soon light is on & at times it also says reduced power. I was told the transmission is going & would be ridiculous to replace it. Question is would putting a heavy duty transmission cooler in now help me keep her running longer? I have 131,600 miles

–C. Pressley 7/13/2015 9:23:20 AM

The U-Haul transmission coolers are always a good investment.

Research shows that reduced power issues with your application are not always caused by a faulty transmission, hopefully a recommended second or even third opinion from other shops find a solution that is much more sensible.

–Joseph 8/31/2015 2:04:03 PM

will the transmission cooler increase my tow capacity from 2000 to 5200 lbs 0n my 2015 cyevy traverse
