trannie

Hi,this is whisky6,i have several questions.
(1). on my 95psd i was having temps. as high as (240)degrees,so i decided
to put on bigger cooler,the question is trans. line goes from trans to bottom radiator then to auxcilary cooler back to trans. isn't defeating he idea of cooling.
(2) could i just go straight to auxciarly tran's. cooler then back to tran's and
not have to fight radiator heat which to me because you a thermastat at
(195)degrees you would think you could never get tran's. temp. down to
(170)degrees

LOL..... now that is funny

as far as your trans go... just get a larger secondary cooler and put it inline with your stocker... place it away from the radiator if you can..

but those trans temps leads me to believe that something is wrong with your trans... were you hauling when you saw 240+? you could have a slipping TC.. when was the last time the fluid was changed?

i dont like to see anything over 200 for trans temps....

David you crack me up sometimes.

Also Raul was right on the money with his post. with temps that hot there is something wrong with your trans. With my 01 i have had 12k or more in tow on 100 degree days and never broke 195 with just the stock cooler setup

I don't know a darn thing about 7.3 stuff but I was all about spelling when I was 6 and 7 years old. Unfortunatly 6 or 7 yrs later I got into something else....but not that kind...oh crap. I should stop talking....

i was seeing 180 easily on days that the temps outside were 80*-90*, with the factory and an aux cooler. I installed a trans cooler from a 6.0, and the temps have dropped 20*. At 240*, things arent good in the trans (imo). I just connected the two factory trans cooler fittings on the radiator together.

tranny

Hi,this is whisky6,on the day i hit (240)degrees i was empty,the tran's
cooler i will be putting in has (8)tubes verses the (2)that were in the one
i will take out.
Now on the replies i got mention a possible slipping tc,how do i go about
checking this out myself if i can.
I did notice one on my tranny heat was after i took and hooked the stock
cooler back up was the temp's did not change so leads me to think that
the person that had cooler put on did not get their money's worth out of
the installation cost's.thank,s,whisky6

its not fully luck.... the way you treat the trans makes a big diff....
heat is deff the number 1 killer of a trans...... their are many things that can be done to help keep your trans healthy like adding a secondary cooler and replacing your stock cooler with a larger unit.... you can also add a shift kit or valve body to push up the line pressure... a chip can also boost up line pressure so that your TC doenst slip as much...

but with that being said i think their is def wrong with your trans at 240.... your oil could be burned now....
