Mishimoto MMOC-F Installation

Mishimoto MMOC-F Transmission Cooler Installation - Transmission Cooler Guide

The Mishimoto MMOC-F is a universal fit transmission cooler, so installation is dependent on each vehicle and how you plan on mounting it.  The cooler comes with mounting brackets with nuts and bolts. Unlike most installation kits, this cooler does not include extra rubber transmission hose, clamps, and various fittings. 

Since this cooler  is more heavy duty, it is assumed the installation process will be unique, so you might need to get creative with how to run the wiring for the fan.  It may be a good idea to install an in-line fan thermostat in the transmission line. This will allow the fan to automatically turn on once the fluid reaches a certain temperature (typically 180 F).

Based on this cooler having a fan, you can opt to run the Mishimoto MMOC-F as a standalone cooler.  The fan will allow for adequate cooling no matter where it is mounted, so there it is not a requirement to run in conjunction with the factory trans cooler. 

What We Like About The Mishimoto MMOC-F:

  • Easy to install – This cooler comes with pre-drilled mounting holes and the fan already installed.  All that needs to be done it wiring in the fan
  • Comes as a complete transmission cooler kit for quick installation
  • Cost – This cooler is in the low to mid range in terms of cost compared to similar products
  • Lifetime warranty – Mishimoto is known to stand by their products, and this lifetime warranty proves it

What we don’t like About The Mishimoto MMOC-F:

  • Tube and fin style coolers can get easily damaged compared to plate and fin or stacked plate coolers
  • Only utilizes barb fittings – depending on use this may be a concern 
  • Does not include all components to complete installation such as transmission hose, clamps, fittings, etc.  This may not a deal breaker to most though. 

Conclusion

Given the design of the Mishimoto MMOC-F duty transmission cooler, this will suit the most extreme transmission cooling needs.  With its 8″ electric fan, this cooler is one of the better trans coolers for the price. Compared to similar trans coolers, the Mishimoto can be found at the lower to middle ends of the cost spectrum, which makes it a great buy. 

Another great benefit the Mishimoto MMOC-F is that is comes with a lifetime warranty.  This is very common of most Mishimoto products, and depending on how you need this cooler, can be a huge selling point for you.  God forbid you are on the trails and a rock hits the cooler and cracks it, you may be able to get a replacement. 

Overall, this cooler is a great buy when comparing the performance for the price.  Once you get past the fact that you’ll need to purchase extra pieces to complete the installation, you will still be way ahead of the game.  

If you’re in the market for a heavy duty transmission cooler, we highly recommend the Mishimoto MMOC-F for applications that need more than average transmission cooling.
