Keeping Your Jeep Wrangler Auto Tranny Cool

2011 August 25

If you own a 2007-2012 Jeep Wrangler (JK), you already know how cool this vehicle is. But if it has an automatic transmission, it might turn out to be a hot vehicle. In fact, last year, 88,000 of them were recalled for potential automatic transmission overheating. The fix at the dealership is to install a trans temp warning light. If the light comes on, you’re supposed to park your Jeep and let it cool down.

We have a different fix that we like a lot better. The Flex-a-lite Part # 4118 transmission cooler more than triples the cooling capacity that a Jeep Wrangler should ever need. Our trans cooler is made in the U.S.A. and includes our unique Turbulators, which are inside the cooler tubes. These Turbulators increase the heat transfer from the fluid.

The installation of our transmission cooler in one of these Jeeps is easy and only takes a couple of hours. In fact, Jp magazine recently published an article showing you exactly how to do it. Click here to read Anti Auto Bake on www.jpmagazine.com.

You'll need to make two simple straps to mount a Flex-a-lite PN 4118 transmission cooler on a 2007-2012 Jeep Wrangler. This should avoid any overheating problems with the automatic transmission.

If you have a tow rig for your Jeep, you may want to put one of these or one of our larger model transmission coolers on your truck, too. Nothing ruins your day like overheating your automatic transmission! And it’s easy and inexpensive to avoid. See all of our transmission coolers at www.flex-a-lite.com.
