Tranny temp?

I finally finished installing my gauges due to the fact I pinched my boost tube so I stopped. Now that everything is installed I didn't know if I was running hot for a mildly modded truck with 115K on the clock. (see sig extreme street all day every day)

I run about 170 on the trans temp. I know when the heat index is 105+ its going to be a little hotter, but is this normal for an empty truck?

170 is normal bud.... anywhere over 210 is getting too hot so just keep it under that

Thanks Rual. I hate relating to my friends D-max, but his runs a lot cooler. Just wanted to make sure something wasn't wrong.

too hot for a tranny torqshift or not above 210 is too hot.

that may be your opinion...i'm going by my experience (running 220*+ for extended periods towing), and a very educated/reliable source for Ford tranny info..

i don't have a gazillion 1/4 mile pulls on my truck (just a few at the track and a bunch on the street), but i do have almost 60K HARD towing miles with it...i pull an 11K toy hauler through the mountains of the west and show my truck no mercy...4 years and no tranny problems for me..if it grenadaed tomorrow i'd feel that i got my $$$$'s worth...

just to fuel the fire, i've also been told that the reason SP is recommended for the TS is not for the life of the frictions, but the proper operation of the solenoids..

the old tables for tranny life based on fluid temp are basically obsolete with the TS...

According to Mark Kovalesky, who was a Ford tranny engineer from 1988 to 2007 and worked on the 5R110 project 230* is NOT a problem for this transmission. He posts on FTE quite often and will be glad to answer any and ALL questions about this fine piece of engineering.....even about the annoying 2-3 shift.
