4r100 running hot
I am a new user and appreciate any help. I have a rebuilt jasper 4r100 with approximately 40k that is running hot. I just installed gauges. My transmission temp gauge was reading up to 205 degress at highway speeds (unloaded) after installing a tru max cooler (gauge installed after cooler, prior temps unknown). It would reach this temp fairly quick. I have since bypassed the stock finned cooler and temps still reach 195 degrees unloaded at highway speeds. It takes almost an hour of driving to reach this temp (big improvement, obviously stock cooler clogged). In town I rarely exceed 180 degrees, so short trips are not an issue. 195 degrees on the highway 72mph unloaded sounds high even for Houston,TX. Any ideas?
2001 ford f250 platinum edition 4x4 crewcab..7.3..236k..4"magnaflow exhaust...6637 intake..isspro a pillar... stock sct tuner set on "street" tune.
Thanks again for any help
