Two Things on my E40D

I don't know if I have problems or not.

1. My Autometer transmission temp gauge eventually pegs out at 250 regardless of the ambient temp. The factory temp gauge stays at about mid point on scale. The fluid looks good and the surface of the transmission isn't hot to the touch. I suspect I may have a bad sensor or I have it in the wrong location. Any ideas on how to trouble shoot this.

2. I had a strange experience one day while trying to climb a steep drive way. My tires started to spin so I let off and rolled back and gave it another go and ended up spinning again. I backed down to a point that I could get a running start. When I hit the peddle I got a lot of RPMs out of the motor but I got very little of moving forward. Kind of like being in 4 wheel low, but in a really low gear. I let off and waited a bit and hit the peddle again and everything was back to normal. Could this be a foreshadowing of major problems?

That sounds like your temp gauge is off, The trans wouldnt work at that temp

Sounds like the coast clutch might have been slipping. Obviously its a sign of wear. How many miles are on it?

Id go ahead and say you are looking into a rebuild in the future. If its free revving in gear thats an issue

Could be as simple as a torque converter but it could also be a full rebuild
