Trans Temp

I just installed gauges this weekend, i noticed trans temp is at 120-125ish driving to work in the morning, I drive 92 miles to work. I was driving around town running erronds and it only reached 135-140, not close to the 150 tick mark. is this normal, also I used the temp sensor that came with it, i used a feeler gauge to check the depth of the test port hole and it had plenty of room for the long sensor. But I have read that people have been ordering the shorter 2259 sensor. Not sure if that is why it read so low or just a good tranny. Rebuilt to stock specs before i bought it 30k miles ago, i put 25k on it since Nov.

Thanks

Yea, it does take a long time to reach 125, I drive almost 100 miles, 40 of it is in stop and go traffic. So that tells me tranny is good, right?

Means you are cooling good and there is not excessive slippage, so i would say its good.

Between 150 and 195 is normal.

Over 220 is too hot for continuous service. Never exceed 250 for more than 30 minutes.

Rule of thumb the trans temp should be usually 60-90* above outside temp

I spoke with brian from bts, he told me that 80 above ambient (outside) is a decent rule of thumb with tranny, 100 above when towing or running it hard. Not exact, but just kinda somethin to go by and you should be alright.
