Rod and Graham talk about our Cooler Kits

Do I need a cooler?

Good question. Put simply, overheating is the number one cause of automatic transmission failure! While only a few vehicle manufacturers have done a good job of building a good transmission cooling system, there are far too many that have missed the mark.

If you are deciding on whether your vehicle needs an external transmission cooler, consider these points:

  • There is no such thing as too much transmission cooling (Except if you live within the Arctic Circle).
  • Why and when was it decided that it would be a good idea to remove axillary transmission oil coolers in some models?
  • I mean who came up with the stupid idea of trying to cool down hot transmissions by using the radiators hot water only?????
  • There can be no doubt that all vehicles that tow “or” are equipped with off road tyres, bull bars and lift kits etc all require auxillary oil coolers.
  • Here at Wholesale Automatics we have solved these problems with an all Australian Made easy to fit complete transmission oil cooler kit
  • Transmission oil coolers need to mounted securely to avoid vibration and cracking. DON’T get caught out using flimsy mounting brackets. Our heavy duty Australian made One piece mounting systems solves this problem.
  • Our mounting bracket is E-coated in black to give you full protection from the elements, this coating is 60% more resistant to corrosion than galvanised steel!
  • Each kit comes with everything you need to install including Extra Large Oil Cooler, E-coated Mounting bracket, Quality Cooler Lines with Protective Shielding, Mounting Hardware and Cooler Unions if required.
  • If you’re handy with the tools then this kit is for you as they come complete with mount and oil cooler pre-attached.
  • We also have over 40 dealers throughout Australia capable of doing the fitting for you.

Some of the Cooler kits we have available

Toyota Prado 150 Series 5 & 6 Speed Transmission Cooler

Toyota Prado 150 Series Transmission Cooler
We always recommend a crossflow style cooler as these generally give you the best cooling capacity for the size footprint of the cooler. As for the mounting brackets, we are slowly building our range of vehicle specific cooler brackets, however for the rest of the vehicles you will need to channel your MacGyver skills on one of our universal bracket kits. Alternatively you can drop your vehicle into Wholesale Automatics (or one of our Fitting Agents) and let the professionals sort it out for you.
Toyota Hilux 4 & 5 Speed Transmission Cooler

We stock many different size coolers as there is a huge range of vehicles and applications from the massive Toyota cooler used in many of our manual to automatic conversions down to a small unit perfect for a mini. In some cases we may need to use multiples of coolers to achieve the required cooling capacity. Either way, we will have a solution that meets your needs.
