I have never checked mine, the next time I go on a decent run I will hook up my AE and let you know, but 250 seems a bit high. Over heating isn't usually a problem as our cooling systems are pretty robust. What are you using to give you the reading? Are you sure it is accurate? Where are you getting the temp from?

250 is high. I knows it a 6.0 but right now with the cooler temps I rarely see over 170. During the summer I would see about 190-210

No, its definitely not my trans. My trans runs hotter

If I play around a good bit I can get it up and over 180ish but just normal driving it will rarely get over 175
