letsmow10 I don't really have much helpful input but I have never seen trans temps hit 200 in my excursion even when pulling my 8k pound camper through the mountains with a lift and 35s. Im not saying that the temps are high enough to hurt anything but I don't think its normal and there is some reason. Im not sure what but something is off. A new cooler could be cheap insurance I suppose but I would be careful with aftermarket coolers.

bismic Most 6.0L people just don't need anything upgraded or additional when towing. Something is different if you do. JMHO. How do you know that the TFT is even accurate? Have you verified that it reads the same as the other temp sensors when the engine has completely cooled down?

Chris If you plan on towing and your temps regularly get above 215-220, I would look into replacing your trans cooler or adding an additional one. When I would tow with my F150, I ended up adding a cooler similar to this one inline with my OEM cooler: https://www.amazon.com/Hayden-Automo...8285435&sr=8-9. If you feel uncomfortable about the temps, it can be a very inexpensive bit of insurance. I don't know if the one I linked would be appropriate for our trucks, but it gives you the general idea.

Ok, good to know. Im still learning more about the 6.0. I just don't want to break anything more than I usually do. Im terrible with anything expensive. LOL

I didn't realize they cold get that hot. I don't know much and am still learning about these 6.0's though.

Thanks,

I think I might get a new cooler. Some of the fins are bent. I fixed the hand full that were bent but they still have a slight bent to them. The temp has gotten to 210-215 but I had just pulled back up to my house by then

I thought it was slipping. Had fluid changed and it seemed to fix that but it still likes being stubborn. Shop said it was fine. The shop has a very good reputation so I don't really know.
