Stock trans temp gauge vs Spartan readout
So the other weekend I was pulling my 18K pound toy hauler fiver over the mountains. And according the Spartan readout the trans starting getting hot (around 220, which I consider hot) but the stock in-dash gauge was well within the normal range (about vertical).
So is the in-dash gauge a big P.O.S.???
Or is 220 within the normal range for trans temp and I'm playing it to conservative???
The truck was pulling fine, and all other temps were OK (up steep grades the oil temp would rise a little as well). It was in the high 90's outside temp though.
