Oil and Trans Temps

The gauges that are in the screen inside seem to be high. My oil temp has been reading at 190-203 and the trans temp has been 185-195. I thought these were very high. What is everyone else reading and how accurate are these gauges? This truck has 70 miles on it and its under no load in 80 degree weather. Thanks

If you think about it - those temps are very close to, if not exact to, the coolant thermostat. Prolly because the coolant is used to regulate those temps. With that said, it looks like your truck is doing what it was designed to do.

BTW, my temps run just like yours and they never vary even if I am towing. I was in some 100 degree heat this past weekend pulling my toy hauler @ 9.3 mpg and the temps were right there as always.

oil temps are normal, but wow. The trans temp seems hot to me. Granted i have a 6.0l with the 5R110, but my trans stays in the 150s unloaded, and 160's to low 170s towing, depending on how hard i am on it. I've never gotten hotter than 177, except for one time i hit 190.
