Tranny ideas

I need to get a new front seal for my e4od. I heard viton makes a good one. Any other ideas for the seal? And I also want to get a huge cooler for the transmission along with a temp gauge. I don't want nothing fancy I just want it to be inexpensive. I can't go on a long ride without the transmission getting red hot so I'm trying to fix this problem. Any other things I should try before I want to switch it for a manual? Thanks.

If your trans is heating up just from normal driving than there is an issue that needs to be resolved besides replacing the front seal as far as a cooler is concerned scouring the junk yards for a 6.0 cooler do a search for it I believe there is a DIY thread on it.

Well I put a new seal in. I think it is slipping though. It got really hot real fast. If a lock the torque converter with a switch, it seams to catch the slightest bit but will not come close to stalling the truck when I stop. It's like you let the clutch out just till it barely starts to pull but you can still be stopped. Any thoughts?

If you lock the converter with a switch you installed it doesn't stall the engine?

I envy those that know exactly which modification to make and in the most logical of sequences. But not enough to trade for my meanderings and misfires.

Torque converter is burned out. The lock-up clutch is gone and this is where your heat is coming from and maybe even the melted front seal. Time for a new TC.

Ok thanks. I will maybe try just a different torque converter and see how it acts. I will keep this updated as I try it. Is there anything I should keep in mind while swapping a torque converter. I'm planning on getting a low mileage one from a junk yard.
