Auto trans temp

I read somewhere 200 was a normal operating temp. Mine starts not shifting from 1st to 2nd when 200+ I changed the fluid and filter and double checked to make sure it is full.Any ideas ? The temp also got as high as 215 before I shut it down to cool down. Are high temps an indiication there is an internal problem and time for a rebuild. This is without hauling and just running around town.

I pull over at 190-195. 200+ is bad. Look on the trans lines for a inline filter. If you find one, replace or remove it. Are you still running the small cooler? You need to add cooling capacity quickly. If shifting is already having issues, it may be a bit late. Your temp should only be 60-70 degrees above ambient temp.

6.0 cooler is a common upgrade for the stock 7.3 cooler, bolts right in, just the lines need to be adapted

I will get one Monday/Tues. What needs to be done to the lines just reroute or diff fittings?
Does anyone know if I can get a BTS/John Woods tranny from somewhere else other than directly from them? I am trying to find someone local to save on shipping charges.

thanks for the help guys, truck has over 300k on original trans, trying to make it last, and the heat with the heavy loads is going to kill it, I know. The truck has just now be used for heavy loads sense I bought it from my father inlaw, he just mainly used it for going from one job to another and minimal pulling. thanks again guys
