This is after driving the truck for a while, right???

Take a look at this post. First one down.

Might help you out.

Don't what you're doing with the truck. Just driving, towing, etc. May need to look into a bigger tranny cooler -OR- an auxiliary cooler.

Whisky6,

You may want to check to see if you have a blocked cooler line. I currently have the 'old' style 9-row cooler. I've never gone over 195* even after driving (not Towing) 8-hours and 500 miles.

I towed my 12K 5th wheel approximately 250 miles over a big grade and along the freeway with a head wind. I hit 210 sustained. I did hit 250 once after climbing a 10% grade that is about 1 mile long.

Because to those temps, I am getting ready to put in a 6.0L cooler.

tran,s temp,s

Hi,this whisky6,i looked at your suggestion about flushing tran,s
would there ever be a possibility that if i havetran,s flushed that
it would cause a problem that was not there to start with.
The reason i am saying this i called up several shops and said that
if they found stuff in the bottom of the pan they would like to go into
it deeper,i told them i did a service my sisters powerglide and found 1/2
inch of crude in the bottom of the pan put tran,s back together with new
fluid and never had any problem,s,also is there ball park figure on cost to
rebuild one of these tran,s,thank,s whisky6
