Tranny temps.

Hey guys, so I recently installed a brand new heavy hauler series fully loaded tranny from napc, and I'm seeing higher than normal temps while driving.. It is 90 degrees out but I am seeing 170-190 on my TFT .. If anyone has this tranny out there are these normal temps?

I like my trannys room temp.

As far as your transmission, those temps are higher than what my stock one runs.

cruising 65mph on a 98+ degree weather flat ground im at 165-170 trans temp on my edge... yours could need a break in period? and you can always drop the pan, change both filters... i got my oem stuff cheap at dieselfiltersonline.com including mercon lv for under $6 a qrt thats right...

your temps sounds normal to me...

i have a very heave duty custom built trans. and mine stays around the 150* mark and it is hard to make it get hotter. I was told 150-180* is ok in a work load situation.

Who does your tuning? I dont think it would have as much effect once your at speed, but some transmission builders recomend certain tuners for a reason. Is the converter locking? And is it a billet converter? Did you replace the trans cooler when you replaced the trans? And are you running the right fluid? Just thoughts that come to mind. If this was like your first run out with the trans maybe its normal to run hotter, i know it is during breakin for engines . We used to run engines on our dyno for ups, it was hard to keep em cool during the first major heat cycle. Not sure if transmissions follow suite.

I would think the trans temp could also depend on the sending unit's location. I have mine right in the side of the trans and I usually see temps in the 150-180 range, upto 190 when pulling my camper in stop and go traffic.

Do you have a way to monitor the factory trans temp gauge digitally? If so, how close is your temps sensor vs. the factory one? I've always wondered this...

I'll hook up the Auto Enguinity on my laptop and go for a cruise. I'll post results within a day or so.
