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?

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.
