Trans TEMP.

I was driving around today running some errands, and noticed my trans temps rising slowly. Hit 197.5 and stopped cause thought that was a little high. I'm not sure why it was to high or if its to high to begin with. Its about 95-98 degrees outside and humid as hell don't know if that will cause it to get higher. But it was usually around 168-180 degrees.
Gotta love all the amount of issues that ive had with a 6.0 in 2 1/2 months of ownership. LOL

Driving around doing errands is kind of vague. Were you in heavy stop n go traffic or cruising on highway at 50ish mph when the temp started to rise.

Did it start to cool off once you started driving again?

Any history on the truck? did the transmission have any work/maintenance done recently?

How did the fluid look on the dipstick? was it red or was it more brown/ almost a burnt smell to it?

Also any mods: lift, tires etc?, how many miles on the truck etc?

I ask all these questions because the 5R100 is a very stout transmission with a very good reputation etc.

-99 F250, 4X4, 6.0 trans cooler, 08 mirrors, 05 grill, AIS Intake, lvl kit, JW Vbody, cncfab hpop lines, WW2.

04 Excursion Modified, 04 F350 Modified, 06 F350 Modified

Interested in learning something new?

Just had trans fluid change 2 days ago. No heavy stop and go, around 50,60 mph, fluid was on the dipstick. Its lifted on 37's and has 151k. Don't know if anything done to the motor but when I bought it, it had alot taken off. (Taken off) Gauge system, Tuner, exhaust that I know about. Wasn't cooling down when I was driving just kept slowly going up. When I pulled over and shut the truck off was 197.5. I did spray the external trans cooler when I got home and some dirt did come off. Cooler isnt in the best condition either. Tops of some of the fins are slightly bent.
