Transmission Temps

What temp do you see your transmission reach when daily driving normal and under high throttle ect...

Mine barely leaves the 0 mark if at all and stays around a 100. I never see it go high at all. Is that because I'm not towing? I'm sure it will increase in the summer but even when I hammer down it does raise much at all. Just trying to see if everything is working ok and what not.

The Search button is amazing for info like this!!!

Normal trans temps are 70-90 above ambient. The lesser when not towing and the greater when towing heavy. My temp gauge won't move until spring!!

Yes it is when you have the time to spend to search, in my case I don't. Thanks for the information.

Is there a temp it should not reach?

I wouldn't think you'd wanna be too high, not sure why they make the gauge read so high.

Sustained temps above 200 means you need more cooling, 210-220 is when I would be pulling over.

So you don't have time to use the search feature, but I have time to type the same replies several times a week???? How does that work????
Just picking at ya, but the search feature will be a lot faster than making new threads as a lot of this has been discussed in great depth already.
See ya

I've been getting trans temps from 160-190 lately just driving city/highway not towing. I am going to order a frame rail mounted additional cooler with fan with thermostat with tons of flow. 400 cfm i think it said. Also going to try to install a trans go shift kit to help as well.

Sounds like you need a 6.0 trans cooler. I usually see 60 above what the temp is outside empty and about 80 above when pulling my 5er. The 6.0 cooler is massive!
