I recently got my truck out of the transmission shop. Thankfully under warranty on the rebuild
, all the clutches were shot and I didn't have reverse.
Anyway I went ahead and bought gauges for it and I was suprised to find that my trans temp gauge always reads between 180* and 200*. It hasn't gone over 200 yet, but I havent pushed it by hauling anything either. It's 94
degrees here and I'm just normal driving, unloaded and seeing these temps.
I'm going to Colorado in October, where I will be loaded down, and going through the mountains, so I was thinking of either adding a larger capacity transmission pan (Mag-Hytec), or doing a trans cooler upgrade.
I need some advise on what to look for (I know where a 6.0 superduty is at a scrap yard if that would be beneficial) and what parts I would need to complete an upgrade.
Questions I have are:
Do I replace my cooler with a larger version or just add another in line?
What parts are needed with either scenario?
What degree trans temperatures should I be aiming for?
And pictures are always a plus.
