i have no idea . I have a power steering cooler also . They were out of the Gauges when i installed mine . But i think i am just going to change the Stereo to one were i can see the coolant temps also
Or get a OBD scanner and Torque Pro and monitor both TCT and TFT. On my vehicle the temp drop with the Hayden 679 is steady 30F and temps never hit over 180 no matter what the driving conditions maybe.

Re: Transmission oil cooler hose protection

You can, I've also edge trimmed any sharp corner the hoses pass near.

I put almost every cable, wire, and hose inside one of those. Order online from a made-in-USA, high-heat-rated one if you're going for engine compartment; off-the-shelf or discount Chinese works for sheathing wires inside the vehicle.
Can you post a couple engine bay pics ?

Re: Transmission oil cooler hose protection

Lol that plastic isn't stopping anything. The ribbing is already easy to slice... Rubbing on metal, the vibrations will merely make quick work. Along with what @Iconic_ posted some type of anti heat or fire sleeve is what we use on track cars to keep the parts happy from unwanted contact.

Re: Transmission oil cooler hose protection

I made sure that no sharp edges are rubbing the hoses and wherever there is a chance I have double duct taped.

Re: Transmission oil cooler hose protection

@ArupFJ you should be fine. Fuel and oil rated lines are usually reinforced casing. Give a transmission hose a slice with a razor blade. It does take some force to get those hose to give up. I guess heat may play it's role too in regards to softening the rubber. You may also consider replacing oil cooler kit clamps that tear and loosen due to expanding and contracting rubber.
I'd suggest good clamps such as OE spring clamps or smooth band worm gear clamps that won't damage the rubber

I replaced the standard clamps that came with the Hayden with this https://precisionbrand.com/products/...er-pack-of-10/

@ArupFJ you went with these?


I'd recommend the smooth body clamps. Both will work

jamesepoop, yes I went with the ones on top but the ones you posted have far less jaggies to cut into the rubber. However the precision clamps are far better built and smoother inside than the ones that came with Hayden and are built out of stainless steel and thats a plus. Next time will use your recommendation.

Here are some closeups of the densest areas of loomed hoses & wires. One of 'em's interior (for the rear battery/fridge), and one of 'em's exterior (brake line over the rock slider mounts), but the rest are engine bay.

Can you spot the 2 that I still need to get around to? There're 2 more like that elsewhere in the car.
