Whats your normal tranny temps?

Just curious. What temps are people usually seening on of their tranny? Just cruising mine is usually 150* to 165* depending on the heat. Under a load it usually stays around the 165* mark.

SHould be about 100* over ambient. Add like 20* give or take a few if towing.

Empty I BARELY EVER see over 180, and that's on a 100* day. Mine stays around 140 or doesn't move at all. And towing a 5er I've never seen it over 180.

The stock guage is garbage. I had always heard that on here but was suprised to see that when my Autometer guage changed temps my stock dash guage never moved at all.

Im in the 150-165 range. The highest I ever saw was 170 and that was when I was towing about 10,000 lbs.
