Transmission killers

I know that heat is a killer on a transmission. I put on a trans cooler and hardly ever see temps over 125 and rarely over 150 when towing with O/D off. If it stays low like this I'm assuming it'll last quite a while.

What else will kill a tranny though?

Poor programming, for those who add a chip or use a tuner, have probably killed more transmissions than heat

agreed, the 4R100 isnt that bad of a trans, you can put in a 6.0 torque converter and a valve body kit from BTS and the stock trans should last a long time even tuned, udder abuse is about the only thing that makes it tell you to F-OFF..

05+ coils, 10 Rear diff, box, tailgate, lights, bumper, Full 07 front harley swap...the list is endless.

AS IM RARLEY on here anymore...have a question ?? EMAIL ME dakinbryce@hotmail.com..ill gladly answer any of your questions. OR search me on facebook. ill help out anyway I can !

Under or over filled with fluid will cause issues.

I probably need to call BTS and get a valve body kit from them. I'm guessing a chip (TW, swamps, or something like that) would help with some power, I was just worried about the trans crapping out on me.
