Tranny temp?

I recently bought a 01 f350 ex cab long bed automatic 124,7xx straight pipe turbo back with a TS 6 pos chip. I was not towing and my trans temp typically will not exceed 150. Outside temp today was a little warmer but not by any means hot. my trans temp was hovering around 180 all day. I also was smelling what I thought was brakes so on the road I dismissed it as brakes from other stop-and-go traffic goers. I parked it at home and smelled that same smell from my truck. I went around my truck smelling my brakes just in case a pad was rubbing but nothing. Because my truck is new to me I am trying to figure out its quirks and I want to see if there could be a potential problem... I know the trans isn't running hot I just want an average base to see where the temp should be. Oh, I don't know if it would make a difference but I had to get on the gas fairly hard to jump out into traffic

i think your fine with temps. The smell, if just purchased, could be "detailer's special" spray, to make things purdy for potential buyer. You'd know, when brakes are cook'n.

Pull the trans stick, once warm, and smell it for burntness. Check your level to trans and oil too.

i dont have a 4r100 but unloaded i think 180 sounds hot to me. i would agree they should be more around 150 empty. thats kinda odd they randomly went up to 180. make sure e brake isnt stuck on and maybe just pop the wheels off check the brakes and calipers and maybe even grease the slides.
