Toyota Landcruiser 200 Series PDI Heavy Duty Transmission Cooler suit 6 speed AB60


Recommended for beach driving or loaded up vehicle where transmission temperatures quickly rise.

Kit is designed to fit at the front on the drivers side between the original transmission cooler and the centre support bracket. These are designed to work with the factory top mount and not compatible with the PDI front mounted intercoolers.

By default, all PDI external transmission coolers are designed to be market leading through:

· Maximum efficiency 29,000BTU (energy dissipation unit of measure).

Stacked Plate coolers – this is the best design you can use.

· Steel one-piece brackets (zinc plated and coated) to eliminate flexing of the aluminium cooler.

· High quality transmission cooler hose (rated to 400psi). 10mm ID hose with clamps and fittings to connect in series with factory external cooler.

· PDI places outlets on the side or top to prevent air locks inside the transmission cooler.

NOTE: Having the outlets at the bottom will make the installation easier as the pipes are run down under the radiator, BUT if you get an airlock (from initial installation empty) there is a strong chance you will never actually fill the top of the coolers with fluid and designed cooler efficiency may never be reached.



Is an aftermarket transmission cooler required?

New car manufactures make a car to a price and ensure it meets the expectations of most customers. If you aren’t towing are are running standard power then, quite rightly, you probably won’t be thinking of adding a transmission cooler. If you want to be more scientific, then measure the transmission temperature and decide if you are comfortable with the temperatures you are seeing. If you will be towing a caravan or camper trailer then it is sensible to install an external transmission cooler, to make the transmission last as long as possible by keeping the temperatures down.

The ideal operating temperature for automatic transmission fluid is somewhere between 80 and 110 degrees C. Here’s what can happen above this range:

  • At approximately 115 degrees C, important additives begin to cook in the automatic transmission fluid (ATF). The result is the formation of varnish inside the transmission.

  • At approximately 125 degrees C, internal transmission seals, which are often manufactured from a polyacrylate material, begin to harden. The end results are internal and external leaks as the the seals lose their elasticity.

  • At approximately 145 degrees C, transmission clutch plates begin to slip because the oil is breaking down further.

  • At approximately 160 degrees C, seals and clutches effectively burn out. Carbon forms in the oil and your effectively killed the transmission. Often, a transmission will die within a few thousand km after experiencing 150-plus degree heat.
