still getting hot

Ok so I just had a Ford reman installed. And a 6.0 cooler. But my transmission still is getting up to 180 not pulling anything. It was running at that temp with my old cooler and trans. What's the deal. I can't ever remember it running that hot in the past prior to having issues with the old tranny.

Curious, where you at? your tranny temp should be anywhere from 60-100 degrees from from ambient air temp. I have both the torque app, and gauges. my truck gauge will sometimes read hotter than my torque app gauge but typically my temps are about 80 degrees warmer than air temps

yesterday at 90 degrees, my tranny was fairly consistently in in the low 170's with strictly highway driving

What kind of driving are you doing? that makes a huge difference for me. around town it'll be closer to 100 degrees difference (90 outside, 190 degree trans)

What are your coolant temps? Ever had the radiator flushed or replaced? Check temps at the upper and lower radiator hoses.
