transmission running hot

So my tranny got hot on sat an flashed the OD light an I got 3 codes p1249 p1211 and p1783 took it back to camp an let it sit all night got up this morning an checked the fluid it smelt a little burnt but didnt look bad ended up driving it home about 200 miles no problem besides running hot the whole way home wasnt puking fluid or slipping at all shifted fine an ran good all the way...

Any insight on what I should do now? bigger cooler? clogged filter? change the fluid?

The only code for the trans that showed up is p1783 Trans overtemp condition.

Flush it Get a larger cooler and most importantly get rid of the bullydog chip or have custom tunes burnt on it

Whos tunes are on the chip? Sounds like somethings plugged up or converter is slipping. How many miles on the truck

I dont think that getting a bigger will do that much as the cooler you already have should be the best out there!
