tranny temp

what is normal temp? My tranny has been creeping up there around 180, never seen it get that high before. How much will it go up if I am towing something?

That's a good question...I'd like to know as well so here's a bump. Mine's sitting around 190 on long trips.

180 is optimal operating temp.200- 210 is running hot and 220 and beyond is redline shuter down. go check your tranny cooler and straiten out the fins on it and make sure nothing is blockin air flow to it

Your tranny temp should be about double of the outside temp. So if it's 100 out you should see between 190-200 degrees. Just a good rule of thumb

Well I guess mine is too cool if there is such a thing, since I added the aux cooler it runs about 130-150. Is that a bad thing?
