Tannie temps

My name is Alex i have an 95 f350 OBS and Iím new to this fourm, i have a question on my trannie, my trannie runs fine but once i get to 180* it acts funny, i do a lot of stop and go driving, but i dive like an old man and donít drive my truck hard at all. Why would it heat up like that, my trannie maybe has 10000 miles on it. what could be the reasons for this issue?
Thanks everybody for the help
Alex E

Clogged cooler... if you had it rebuilt and they kept it running through the rad they probably didnt flush it...

I cant remeber what its called but you can get it at carquest or napa. Its in an aresol can, basically cleans out any of the gunk in the cooler.

If your lines are still running through your RAD, I DO NOT RECOMMEND FLUSHING AND REUSING!

Get an after market cooler. If you plan on doing alot of towing the I would go with the 6.0 cooler. If not then I would make sure its atleast a 10 row cooler.

The cooler isn't the best in the world, and depending on the ambient temp, stop and go traffic can get it really warm.
Also, since it's new, all the clutches are a lot more firm against each other and that can be another reason for the heat; more surface area and more friction

^^^^^ And the fact that you are circulating your fluid through a hot radiator...

A small cooler will run you like $50 tops. Trust me it will be a solid investment. Heat is what kills a transmission.

You might want to get your mechanic to pressure test your tranny. If you are having to lift your foot to get it to shift out of first when hot it sounds like you may have a intermediate seal starting to go.
