Question Rising temps

Little help here guys!
I live in Michigan and the temps have been below 30degs the last few days and my tranny temps have been at an all time high of 180-190deg!!!! The fluid level is fine and when it was 70deg out it was never over 150degs.
New fluid and filter at the last oil change, 5k ago.
Thanks in advance,
Tony B.

Nope,

Going to send her in for a service check this week.
We'll see what the tech guy comes up with!

Well, after several "local" guys that either service SD's or that are "transmission guys, I ended up at Hudsonville Transmission. I was told by most that it needed this or that but no real answer. Steve at Hudsonville Transmission told me right away it was my converter. They rebuild alot of these and seemed to be a no BS guy. Steve told me on the phone that they build them so they never see them again. Steve and his crew were recommended to me and I will recommend them to you. After a new oil pan(darn junk), converter, some seals and two big coolers out front, I was motoring 180 miles back home with a smile on my face. I don't normally recommend shops, but Steve and his crew are worth the trip. Steve is fun to talk with and his staff is no nonsense and down to business. Thanks to all that looked at or replied to this thread.
