Hot trans temps!
I recently installed a trans temp sender and gauge and the readings from it are saying close to 200* and this has to be bad. I live in texas and read somewhere that the trans cooler runs through the radiator and this hot weather i should take the line out from there and install a 6.0l trans cooler? i want to do a flush soon, what fluid should i use, i read merconv is that right? ideal temp is around 185 correct? insight into this would be helpful as i know very little about transmission issues.
