When was fluid changed last? If not for a while, I'd change it anyhow and put a new filter in it and see how temps are. How's the shifting? Sluggish, quick, harsh?

the fluid was changeed about 15000 miles ago and it had been normal shifting and then it was feeling like the torque converter wasn't locking up when it was at 280

Wow. I'd change it again.
You'll be able to tell if the TC locked up or not. When you pushed the throttle, did the RPMs jump easily or not?

yea we are doing that and putting a larger trans cooler on but since it was at 280 should i be worried about the electricals in the trans my brother in law is working on getting a 350 or 450 trans cooler with the elect fan on it or just a 6.0 one he is searching for me its just confusing cuz i have had the trans slip error come up 3 times and when i am running down the road 70 is 1800 rpm but when it hit 280 60 was 1800 rpm but it still operates good now they have been driving it to get it to act up again but they cant get it to

Sounds like your TC is on the way out. Either that or the shift solenoid pack is going and its not locking the tc fully.

Don't buy the cooler with the fan on it. I don't think it will do the job that the 28 or 31 row 6.0 cooler will. Just get the 6.0 cooler and be done.

No, you need to get a billet tc. BD diesel makes a good one, as does BTS. Those are probably your best bets.

Shift solenoid pack will have to come from the dealer. You need to look on the case and get the number off the side of it to give the dealer so he can get the right solenoid pack,
