100 deg over ambient is a general rule of thumb

Slipping, clogged cooler, damaged/blocked cooler, low/bad fluid....that's all I can think of right now.

Just FYI, my autometer gauge will screw up sometimes and won't self calibrate at startup so it will give me a high reading when it does that. Also, my cooler was clogged so I took it off and blew it out. You also have a bypass tube that you can see connected between the input and output cooler lines on the trans itself. If you feel that line when your trans is hot and it is hot you most likely have a clogged cooler.

I have the electric full sweep gauges and if that's what you have then you probably have the same issue I have about every 9 months or so
